replacing driver's side mirror?

hey, new here. so i have a '10 SES and someone clipped my mirror while it was parked

so i've got a replacement, but i'm just wondering if anyone has any type of write up on how to do it? i'm assuming the door panel comes off but i don't want to attempt it and end up snapping a clip on the panel. the last thing i want is a rattling door panel on a relatively brand new car. thanks guys

Actually it's not that expensive to get someone to do it, I recently was in an accident and my mirror was killed in the process and the cost to replace AND labor was $75. And that was at a stealership. So it must be easy but like you said, I don't want to be rattling down the road.

Yea, I was quoted around $150 at a stealership. I'd rather save that money lol

well i was able to take care of it. turns out it can be accomplished by just taking the mirror switch and plastic cover off and all 3 bolts are easy to reach!

^^ what he stated is correct. Remove the inside mirrow switch (joystick for me, manual) and there is 2-3 bolts that hold the mirror.

i removed the door panel by prying up the window switch bezel and a screw hidden behind the door pull. i believe there is a screw along the door jam near the door striker. then there were the 3 bolts behind the black plastic at the mirror. i had power windows and mirrors so i believe i had to access the harness behind the door panel.
