Replacing side mirror
 
Hello, I am new to the forum.
I have a question about replacing the drivers side mirror on my daughters E90. How do I remove the mirror from the door?

the back cover can be pulled out with your fingers (three finger at the bottom of cover you face backward looking at rear of the car and gently pull... 10 sec job) .... very easy, then remove mirror once cover is out

Thanks for your reply! I have gotten that far, now I need to know how to remove the entire assembly from the door.
A student at my daughters school broke the entire mirror off of the car. I purchased the replacement and need to know if i have to remove the door panel to gain access to the backside of the mirror.

Things to be aware of
The car will be awake with the doors open and this can drain the battery .
You may need to recharge it after if you don't dissconnect it.
The drivers side door switch pod has a lever which you throw to get it out .
You must be sure to have it all the way reseated before you throw the lever its
a good idea to test the switch before you put the panel back in .

Since I installed and aftermarket stereo kit I have some experience with the door panel stuff .
You will probably need some spare plastic door panel fastners and they are cheap.
Take picture of the trim on each door before you take it apart so you don't drive yourself
nuts wondering if its aligned right.

You sure it is broken? Someone from the office next door drove so close to my car she hit my mirror. She came in crying to tell me about it and when I went outside to look at it, it was dangling from the side. I picked it up and put it back in place to see if I could determine whether whatever held it on was broken. Didn't see anything obvious and just popped it back in. This was maybe seven or eight months ago and haven't had a problem with it.

Are we talking about and electric adjustable mirror
 
Are we talking about and electric adjustable mirror pod.
If the pod got hit hard it will be scratched and the mechanics
and electrics will be destroyed.( the pod and the mirror are probably fubar)

The mirror was def broke, I replaced last night. I had two problems, 1st problem was removing the screws that held the unit to the door, 2nd was the replacement unit screw holes were not tapped (no threads) all is good now and I thank you for alll the information!
