How to remove the glass on the side mirror

Dear all

I would apprecaite some helps here please.

I have a 02' Camry that has an electric side mirror (electric control on position and fold-up). The fold-up is playing up (it folds up fully but only unfold half-way, and need a bit of 'encouragement/assistance' to fully unfold). I suspect that there is some loose gear inside the mirror housing and want to take a look.

My porblem is to remove the glass in order to access the inside of the mirror. I understand a lot of these glassese are clip on but for this one, I really had pull very hard (to the breaking point) and the glass just won't budge.

What's the correct procedure to remove the glass on the side mirror please?

Many thanks.

Don't know about '02 but this is the '07 procedure for Japan made:

(a) Push the upper part of the mirror surface and tilt it.
(b) Using a moulding remover, disengage the 2 claws at the lower part of the outer rear view mirror, and remove the outer rear view mirror glass.​

Many thanks for the super fast repsonse.

It does make sense. I recall seeing something like that.

I am not near my car at the moment but can I just double check, do the two claws 'catch' the back of the glass and I detach them from the back of the glass please?

Many thanks again.
