I need to replace the passenger side mirror glass on my 2002 Outback, the glass is shattered.

It's a heated/electric mirror.

I have the mirror and plastic backing that came with it, but I can't figure out how to get the old glass off!

I tried for about an hour today and failed miserably. I tried to look up under the mirror but I couldn't see anything.

How exactly do I replace the mirror glass?

Thanks for any help!

I have never had to replace just the glass. On other high end cars, the glass either snaps onto the plate attached to the motor or is held on with a retaining spring. If the glass you are removing is broken, pry it with a medium size flat screwdriver to pop it off. The wires for the defogger will still be attached to it and will need to be unplugged.

A for instance is on a Mercedes the mirror cover slides off to access the plugs and glass. On BMW, some, the glass just snaps onto the plate.
