How To: Remove and disassemble side view mirrors

I know not everyone likes the look of painted side mirrors but for those of you that do here is a good step-by-step for how to do just that. It took me about 10 to take this apart and put back together. Good luck.

Tools needed:
10mm extended socket or short with an extension
Small flat head screw driver
Ratchet
T-25 bit
PH3 bit
Driver




Remove interior side view mirror cover by pulling away from the door:



Use flat head to reveal two Philips head screws in the door panel:




Remove electronic panel by pulling up on the front then forward and up:




Remove plastic clip by pushing in on the center then pulling it out:



Unplug wiring harness and adapter from side view mirror:




Use flat head at the bottom of the mirror class to release two clips then pull mirror down and out:



Use 10mm socket and rachet to remove the 3 bolts holding mirror to the door:


Use Philips head to remove one screw holding plastic protector in place:




Use flat head to remove plastic cover at the bottom of the mirror then remove 3 T-25 bolts:




Separate base from cover carefully and remove one T-25 bolt holding the metal piece in place:




Use Philips head to remove 1 screw at the bottom of the cover:



Use Philips head to remove 3 screws inside the cover and remove mechanism:




DONE!
Repeat steps on driver side for the same results.
Follow steps in reverse to assemble everything.

Might not really be related to your post but I just wondering can the actual glass mirror part be purchased separately? Is there a part number for that part? Thanks
