I have the mirror. How do I remove the mirror from the housing?
Click on the link for a bulletin to do the glass replacement.
I end up breaking more then I get replaced.
Sorry, but telling me "you end up breaking more than you get replaced" is no help. I know how to break it, but I wanted to know how to remove it and reset it.
Thank you anyway,

The directions in the DOWNLOAD are very specific. Did you download them? I was merely telling you that they are very tricky to install with out breaking them. Even if you follow the Toyota instructions you need to be careful and apply even pressure on the glass when snapping it into place. You asked for directions. I have delivered the Toyota instructions to you. If you choose to follow them and break the glass because you don't install it properly is not my responsibility.
To not pay for the instructions that I provided is up to you. I gave you what you asked for.
