Side view Mirror

Hello everyone it's been a while, but today I have a very simple question. How do you take the cover off of the side view mirrors? I don't want to break anything so I figure I should ask before I go pulling and prying.

Thanks in advance.

There are plastic posts on the cover that go into a locking tab that works like a zip tie and grabs the groves on the post when inserted. It locks when inserted and is made to snap when removing it. You will have to buy new tabs to re-install. They are about 5 dollars each and there are 4 of them per side.

Part #6 on this diagram.
