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

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
