You would have to see if there is any screws to dismantle the mirror, then i guess you would be able to. if its not that type then the easiest thing would be to paint it, just get some plastic primer to under coat it and then get some paint mixed into an aerosole can from your cars paint code its pretty easy, other alternative get a glass guy to change the insert.

Park avenue driver side mirror leaks oily fluid


The is most likely the chemical that is injected between mirror layers that keeps the mirror from icing on a heated mirror. The seal has deteriorated due to age, most likely. It needs to be replaced with another of the same mirror or a non heated single layer mirror.

Trying to replace driver's side mirror for 200 land rover discove


Easy. Black triange at the top front of the door. Pry away gently and you'll see 3x10mm bolts. Undo these, and the mirror will come loose. Unplug the multi-plug and remove. Job done. Oh, may be some foam packed in there too. Just pull it out and put to one side and replace after.

Need to replace driver side mirror for Camry 2002, Power mirror


On the inside trim, you can remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. Then you'll need to manipulate the panel and disconnect the door handle linkage from the door handle and disconnect the wiring for your controls. Then you can access the bolts that secure the mirror onto the door
