Usually you have to remove all the handles etc. from the inside. (The screws are covered with plastic plugs or similar.) Then the trimming is held by plastic or metal clips around the edges. Carefully pry the interior off and gain access behind.

Side View Electric mirror can't adjust up enough for my height


You can manually push the mirror left or righ or up and down. It just ratchets on the plastic screw adjusters. It won't do any damage.
If you have floding mirros, make sure they are locked into position.
