I know there was a video posted way back. I meant to bookmark it but I want to change out a cracked sideview mirror on my 12 Ti. Can't seem to narrow it down on a search though. If anyone has a link to the post, would be much appreciated.

Adjust it to get the biggest gap at the top outer
Put a small flat bladed screwdriver in to the little slot between the mount plate and the clip (electrical screwdriver is perfect)
Twist to pop of the glass
disconnect wires
Connect new wires
centre new glas and push gently but firmly in middle, click! done

Sounds good. Figured it was pretty simple, just didn't want to go pulling stuff off willy nilly.

I have been torn between just replacing the glass vs replacing the whole thing. The plastic black trim piece has a crack in it as seen below. I was thinking of taking some JB-weld to it but afraid it will just make it look more worse than it already is.
