    is it just the two screws underneath to take off or does the whole unit have to come off?

    Yes 2 screws underneath and then a fidget around pulling, You take your mirror off first which can be quite flimsy but taking your time will see it done in less than 10mins whole job!

    Price wise - Ive seen whole units go for less than 20 before,Id say you'll pay no more than 30 for a unit. You dont need it with a Mirror but if you can get one with a mirror then thats a bonus, just incase you shatter yours like I did mine! Heated mirror glass aswell which are more expensive.

    I wouldnt pay anymore than 25 to get it sprayed either.Dont go to stealers, source yourself a back street Bodyshop/sprayer.
