The cap will not lift off and may cause damage if the mirror glass is on an angle.

Move the glass to the straight position.

Look along the trim between the cap and the lower trim. Locate a small cut out.

Locate your special plastic tool (3409) in the gap and lever up gently. Other tools may cause damage.

The cap should lift up away from the clips.

Lift the cap clear of the mirror glass and motor. To refit, lower the new cap over the glass and push down to clip into the main body.
