behind the piece of glass there is a black plastic that the glass sticks to if you push it to one side stick your fingers behind it and pull you will disconnect the glass retainer from the mirror motors bracket do this on both sides of the mirror and make sure you don't lose the little barrel shaped arms that snap the glass retainer into the window motor housing where glove for broken glass splinters sometimes it's best to put those barrel arms in then press the glass in but I would say it's better to try to fit the arms in while attached to the glass it depends how big your hands/fingers are for the space allowed to get it in GOOD LUCK STEPHEN
are you talking about the mirror insert? or the whole mirror assembly? if it's the assembly open the door and look at the black trimpiece pop it off and you'll see 3 10mm bolts and a connector remove them and the whole mirror comes off. If its just the glass insert get some sand paper and sand the holding tabs a little then use any type of grease and put it on the base that you are attaching it to then try to line it up and start on 1 corner i use a rad hose pick tool to support the base as i press the glass into place.
You need some bathtub silicone sealer and some black electrical tape and a couple of small wooden blocks. Carefully break out the cracked mirror. WEAR gloves and glasses when you do this and have a bucket to catch the falling glass. Make sure the mirror back is clean and put a bead of silicone around the back of the new mirror. Keep it about 1/4 inch from the edge and some dabs in the center portion. Place the mirror on the back and tape one edge down using a wooden block for a spacer. Then do the other side. Make the tape snug so it squashes the silicone and leave the mirror alone for 24 hours. After that take the tape and blocks off and you are good to go. Hope this helps.
On that model you will find that there is in fact NO bulbs fitted for
the turn signal in the mirror. It is 3 small L.E.Ds which are fitted in
a clear strip on the bottom of the mirror. To fit this strip the mirror
must be disassembled as this strip is held in place with internal
screws. The upper trim of the mirror flicks off first and this will
allow you to remove these screws.Its a tricky job... Be careful with
the mirror glass. Breaks very easily.
Good Luck with it
That dependso on if the housing itself is broken then yes. If the face plate that is attached to the mirror itself is flapping around then maybe. If it is just the mirror, just go to your neighborhood auto glass shop and but a "Ready-Cut" mirror for a small amount of money. they come already cut to fit perfectly. As for removing the old glass, take a very small flat screw driver and pry the glass away from the face plate. Once completely cleaned out use the adhesive from the ready cut and place them on the face plate. Next press the new mirror onto the flace pate, being careful not to press to hard or it will snap it in half.
If the metal pivot arm is not broken you can just replace the glass and plastic housing. To remove the glass you tilt the glass down towards the floor and use a wide plastic or wood bladed object to prise from behind, the glass should pop off from its clips. Remember to catch it if its not damaged. To remove the housing once the glass is out you need to look underneath the mirror unit, there you will find a small plastic bung, gently prise it out and then use a long small flat bladed screwdriver straight up inside the hole and lever towards the front of the car whilst lifting straight up on the plastic housing, this should then lift off. To replace just slot the new housing on and click into place then fit the glass back, remember to connect the wires first if it is a heated glass.
If the metal pivot arm is broken then you will find the remaining screws behind the plastic trim inside the vehicle.
