Replacing Left Power Mirror GMC Envoy

I'm looking for help on replacing a cracked heated mirror on my GMC Envoy, I picked up one off Ebay but can't seem to figure out how to get the bad one off.I have the complete housing and mirror but is
there a way to pop the mirror out and exchange them or do I have pull the door panel and replace the whole deal? Thanks, WIll

You can try do pull the mirror glass off, but you might break it. I'd recommend pulling the door panel and installing the whole mirror or just buying a glass from the dealer.

Its pretty easy to get just the glass off since the mirrors are so big, just move the mirror in as far as possible, and then down a little so you have a big gap between the mirror edge and the edge of the assembly, shine a light in there and you'll see a bunch of little clip looking deals holding the mirror onto the servo assembly in a circular pattern, stick a flat headed screwdriver in there and pull them up while gently pulling on the mirror, after you get 4-5 of them released, the mirror will pretty much just come off.

You mean they are not glued in anymore? Good to know. GW

The glass itself is siliconed or glued to the plastic retainer, which clips into the servo assembly, which is screwed into the mirror assembly, which is bolted to the car door :D

One day back when I was driving a 1995 GMC tow truck, the glass just plain fell out of the right mirror at 55 mph. whoops! GW

funniest part of this is of course HF somehow thinking he knows when it happened by the fact I was driving a 1995 GMC. I guess it's still 1991 in "Harry Face Land" when he drives the Bonny. hahahaha GW

No internet in 1991?!?!?!?! You have been sadly misinformed my friend. My dad, was bringing home printouts of rec.autos.tech in the late 1980's. Of course Bell Labs (now Lucent Technologies) was a little ahead of the average bear on such matters. GW
