How to replace driver side mirror case

Need help replacing the passenger side mirror casing of my 2009 highlander.
Can i just pull it to pop out and put in the new one without having to loosen any screws?

casing... are you talking about the painted portion? if so it is held in with 8 plastic "claws".
You can try and get it off by pulling/prying on it, but you will probably end up breaking a claw off. The best way to get it off (and the way the Toyota repair manual suggests) would be to remove the mirror, and you can manually disengage the claws from that side and the cover will slide right off.
Here is how you remove the mirror itself, its not that hard to do, I've done it twice now. All that holds it in is 4 clips.
