Default 928 Side Mirror Removal...

Anyone know how to remove the side mirrors on a 79 928? I think the wires might unplug inside of the mirror but not sure. I've already taken out the allen wrench screw and am stuck with the mirror hanging by the wires. I think i might just need to take off the black trim and maybe the wires are accessable through that. Anyone have any clue how to remove them? Need help ASAP. Thanks in advanced.

You will have to cut the wires either way to get the mirror off. If you are installing a different housing, then you can just cut them as you see them, though they may make splicing new ends on a bit tricky with that short of wire. If they are the same mirrors as the 944 used, then there is a plastic ring you have to turn behind the mirror glass that holds the mirror to the housing, it turns a 1/4 inch or so one way or the other, then the glass will pop off. Then 3 screws and you should be able to pull off the black trim piece and get to the wires. You will have to cut the wires to get the housing off, even though there is a connector in there, it is too big to pass through the hole.

Not a 928, but a 944/68 mirror swap. There was a better write up out there that shows the removal of the old mirrors better, but i cant seem to locate it. I know i have it on my laptop.
