Small update on this.
When removing the mirror housing on the driver's side, the clip to remove it isn't in the bottom, but at the upper left corner of the mirror housing.
You actually have to tilt the mirror down and towards the car and then you unlicp the tab up and pull the housing out.
I just had the pleasure of replacing my mirror thanks to the local bar denizens deciding that my car needed a makeover. Thanks to that, you don't have to wonder why there's no tab on the bottom of your '03+ W220.
To remove the actual mirror, there is a metal clip that you pop up behind the glass after you remove housing, unclip the lcd plug and cut (yes cut) the two wires connecting the defroster.
You then have to solder the wires to the new mirror housing and do everything else in reverse order.
