Thanks for the reply. I already have that document. I am trying to remove the big trim piece, as in the picture I attached.
The mirror is not installed - the picture I uploaded was of the mirror I am trying to remove the trim piece of. Again, I am trying to remove the trim piece from the rest of the mirror. This is why I'm hoping someone with experience of doing it before can chime in. If someone has done it before, they should know what I am talking about.Remove the overhead control panel first.
Thanks for the reply! I got the plate out of the two clips, but the piece still seems to be wedged around the "neck" of the metal piece. You can't slide it down far before the neck cover part gets caught on the ball. I'm not sure if it's possible to remove it without taking the mirror apart. I'll have to keep messing with it until I get it. Or break it.The larger trim cover appears to be clipped onto the metal plate attached to the spring clip.
Stick a wedge between the edge of the plastic trim and the spring clip, then pry them apart. Then you should be able to slide the front edge of the metal plate rearward, out of the clips on the trim piece. Check on your old one before you break the replacement.
