    The outer case can come off, you have to push the mirror forward past the normal postion (as if its been knocked) then remove the small plastic plug in the bottom of the mirror assembly, there is a small clip inside, you have to get a small flat headed screwdriver and stick it up the hole and push forward to release the securing clip then pull the cover up over the glass (make sure the glass is in an upright postion not pointing up or down, makes it easier to come off)
