outside rear view mirror----96s420

i'm trying to remove the painted plastic cover on the outside mirror of a 96-s420.Alldata and the 140 dvd show that the cover comes in three sections.That information is not correct as the cover is one piece and slides off.I'm trying to detach the cover without breaking something inside the mirror assembly.I have the mirror in the fully retracted position,but still am not quite sure how or what to detach to remove the cover.Any help would be appreciated. tx

On my E models, when you fold the mirror, you can see a spring clip inside. Pushing it off the stop makes the cover sliding out.
