Driver side door mirror removal; Any gotchas? wires?

Hi all,
I noticed that my mirror is out of kilter and it seems that someone bumped into it a couple of days ago. The body-coloured part assembly isn't sitting exactly as it should on the dark rubberised triangular part now, so I'd like to remove it to reseat it.

I found this thread http://mercedes-190.co.uk/topic/6597430/1/ and it says to take off a little bit of plastic on the lever, unbolt an allen key and take off the lever and then "pop off" the trim cover.
Should I use a trim tool to simply lever off the little piece of plastic and the triangular trim? (No sliding forward or back or similar before pulling?)
Am I right that then I should be able to pull the mirror assembly away from the body?
Also, I understand that there's some electric heating for the mirror so presumably there are wires going into the assembly. Does anyone know if they're easy to (un)plug while removing the mirror assembly?

Thanks and Best Regards,
ConorD

Just get stuck in to it .Small part that retains the knob to the arm must be removed .The mirror is held on with three screws you will see them after the trim is removed .I bet the spring as come off inside ..

Hi all,
I got this off today -there are two wires and a small connector that lives just under the door card, pull the wire up too see it and to unplug it (there's no need to take the door card off).
However, the full triangle comes off the door - I really only wanted the colour coded bit! I peeled back the rubber bits and & looked inside as far as I could but didn't see anything untoward. I oiled a bit inside and the mechanism is moving a lot more freely, and then reattached it but I'm still not convinced that it's sitting properly. So is there a way to remove the colour-coded backing or otherwise get into that mirror housing?

Also, I noticed a small spring bar attached to the housing but it didn't seem to do anything...is this a way to allow the mirror to be folded into the door and folded back? It looks like it could facilitate a snap-in / snap-out motion.
Thanks again,
ConorD

Yes they all come off, but do use a plastic tool to lever them off .The mirror will need to come off the door to do it right .Remove the three screws take it off . After i did mine, i found that the mirror glass was not in the nylon knuckle in side the mirror adjusting arm . The plastic lever that you move the mirror with will need to come off ,, its got a small part you have to lever out of the arm to remove the end of the adjuster handle . .Then the mirror will come out of the door .If its broken in side you will see it .
