The process doesn’t require any tools at all, just a spare mirror glass. Here are the steps:
  • Rotate the mirror glass towards the car
  • Stick your fingers into the opening created and force it out. It should just snap off and come out
  • Remove the rear adapter from the broken or new glass - the disc-shaped part with the mounting pins
  • Fix the adapter in its socket inside the mirror case according to the video
  • Place the new glass on the adaptor by matching the pins at one end and then snapping it in at the other end.
