    Default remove interior rear view mirror

    I've gotten myself a memory rear view mirror and want to take the old one one - but how?
    The plastic trim cover comes apart pretty easily - won't come all the way off though. When looking behind the trim, I just can't see how it's fitted and how much should come off.
    This is the one I've gotten, is this the whole thing that should come off, or do my new one have some extra spare parts on it

    I know it comes off if I just pull hard enough, but is that the way to do it? How do I get the other one in then? There's a small metal thing that can be wiggled off, so that the top of the bracket releases the bottom of the bracket and the mirror (tried this with the new one). Problem is that it's almost impossible to get back on, even on the one not fitted in the car - I imagine it'll be even harder to do with less space in the car

    Theres 2 notches at the top of the bracket, get some needle nose pliers and squeeze together in the notches mirror will slide down like a knife through butter forcing away at it only risks pulling the bracket off

    got a better pic of the bracket. The arrow points to the bracket, which I can remove with a screwdriver and some force. Not very easy to get back on though.

    Where are the notches I need to press for it to come out?

    well, figured it out once I got the entire trim off.
    For anyone who should have the same problems as me.
    The entire bracket in the pic above slides off towards the window. Only thing needed is a small screwdriver to split the 2 halves of the trim cover and to push push in the small safety lock things on the plugs. The one I took out didn't have silver colored locking bracket (which the arrow points to). If you have the rain sensor, it is very much in the way, but there's no need to remove it, but the wiring for the sensor needs to come off. Fitting just the top part of the bracket is very easy so I'd suggest anyone trying this, just to start fitting the top of it (if it's the one with it), just to get a feel for it - however, it is virtually impossible to mount the rest without taking it back off. It took me about an hour, since I did it in the dark and half the time was spend trying to find a good place to put the torch.
    For anyone who knows what to do, it's a 5-10 min job.

    Not yet, but that's due to not having the seats installed and the memory programmed yet. Need to customise the seats, as I plan to keep the Recaros and add the cooling and Electric lumbar support.
    The mirror itself is plug n play, it takes less than a minute if you've done it before, I you haven't it might take a full hour to figure it out. Wether or not you need another ribbon cable depends wether or not you retrofitted the memory package or the model year of the car. If it's factory fitted, the right wiring should be there - if you bought the car used, the memory mirror could have broken and been replaced with the wrong one. 2008 and 2009 models (don't know if it applies to other) have the full wiring, as it was the one available.
    Do your wing mirrors fold and adjust themselves?

    I have factory fitted memory seats (with cooling and electric lumbar support), but my interior mirror have no memory functions. I have checked the cables, but I have found only five wire mirror ribbon cable from the mirror to the REC modul XR8. According to this, I think I need new cable, because the memory mirror have additional 7 wire to the REC module XR8 connnection. Yes, my wing mirrors fold and adjust themselves. The passenger side mirror have parking function as well.

    I'm not sure how many wires there should be in the ribbon cable, but I remember cross checking the wires on the mirror and the loom. From what I see on ecat24, there are only 2 cables available and one is for estate only - I suspect the other one is for saloon and hatch only (because of the length of the car). You could just try to fit the memory mirror and see if it works, before changing the wiring
