I want to remove a mirror cover without breaking it. My dealer gave me downloaded copies of instructions that call for removing the mirror first (by pulling on it) then accessing fasteners underneath. Has anyone here done this? Help!

I've done it plenty of times, once by packing the car out of the garage and clipping the trim piece, and another time by parking on a busy street while another car clipped my driver side mirror. The actual mirror piece pops right out. You might want to move it with the mirror controls so it is all the way up and in or down and out to be able to get some fingers behind it and pull. It just had a few plastic clips behind it to hold it to the mirror motor mechanism. The driver's side also has a wire presumably for a defroster 9this is on a gen1, I presume the gen2 is similar.

So why are you trying to remove the mirror caps?

I find the lane proximity warning to be so inadequate that I hope to splice into the warning light circuit in order to add a clearly visible light and perhaps an audible warning. (If this car has one I have yet to find it).
