    Adjust the mirror so it points in toward the car, then get a lever in the outside edge and lever the glass off, it just clips in. Inside the housing squeeze the location prongs together and push them out (4 in total). This is in line with Haynes manual. If you just prise the cover off you will snap of the locating prongs. HTH

    or just park it neatly on a main road and wait for someone to knock it off for you and leave no details!

    There's also a small hole in housing in the section that folds around to the mirror side, nearest the car. You need to unlatch that hole from a small securing before you try and extract the housing from the main assembly.
