I don't see any screws or other obvious disassembly points anywhere on the mirror housings, and would prefer not to pry at random parts. Any knowledge on what the bulb types are would also be greatly appreciated.

Thank you for any help, and I apologize if this has already been answered.
My wife broke one mirror so I learned how - sort of. First, you will have to carefully remove the painted cover. You may have to carefully pull the mirror glass away from the mirror assembly. Make sure you turn the glass inward first so you can see. Anyway, you should now be able to see the turn signal and puddle bulbs. Have at it. Like I said, hers was broken so I was able to see the bulbs. As I recall, there were new bulbs with the new mirror assembly.
