It is pretty straight forward. The new mirror glass costs about $65. Once you get it you will see that the glass has two electrical connections on it where the wires attach, and plastic tabs that snap onto the mechanical piece inside the housing that moves the mirror up and down. Attach the wires, center the glass in the housing, and push the glass firmly onto the mechanical piece that adjusts. That's it.
