    My wife broke the one in our car with her handbag!!!!
    You need to lever out the old switch with a thin blade or screwdriver at the back or front as these are where the retention clips are. Audis replacement is only the switch mechanism so you need to keep the housing from the old switch with the pictures of the mirrors on it. The new switch mechanism slides into the housing and then the whole thing pops back into the car
