    You can take the plastic bit off by putting your finger on the top and just pushing it out towards you and it should unclip then disconnect the wires. when refitting the wires can only go on one way. one of the wires is bigger then the other

    Check the mirror on the other side is still securely stuck in place. There were a lot of posts about mirror glass dropping out during the cold weather last winter. Both of mine came loose but fortunately I was cleaning them at the time and they never got to hit the ground, both were stuck back in place using epoxy glue.

    Mine fell out last Wednesday, Vx then insisted that the passenger mirror was light sensitive (have auto dim) but the price was the same as the standard one.

    The guy in the spares dept said he had a lot like this last year.

    I bought a Halfords one for under a tenner, just need to fit it now.
