Hi guys. I've been searching this for a while but can't find much on this that makes sense!

How can I remove the mirror unit, as I would like to vinyl wrap or paint it!

I've managed to get the plastic covers on the bracket off, but then can't see any screws/clips holding it in place.

Thanks in advance

Arun

After you've taken off the covers to the mount the mirror slides off the circular window base.

From what I remember there is a metal spring tab in the middle, although I cannot remember if you need to put a flat blade screwdriver in there just to undo it.

I'm pretty sure you just gently slide it off and that's it.

Take care with the eletrical connector/wires in the middle

No offense shady , but I wouldn't recommend following that one - it looks like he has hooked out the slide clip with a screwdriver!

Not sure why the ball and socket has fallen out of his mirror as well.:

Try this one for the proper procedure:

It simply slides down and the whole thing comes off.
Have just seen this link, reading through it now, thanks
