    Just the mirror glass or whole mirror?

    Also I've moved this to the bodywork forum as it has nothing to do with car audio! Can you try posting question in the correct forum

    The mirror glass is held in by clips attached to the mirror, the clips go around a plastic ring attached to the electric motors that move the glass.
    To remove the mirror you can use a screwdriver or similar with a piece of cloth/rag wrapped around it(so not to damage paint work) and pry the mirror out along the bottom edge.

    See here.....



    And the clips on the back (with heated glass terminals shown).......

    Reguarding the Bluetooth synching I'm not sure, BMW do use some Nokias as standard but I've had problems synching mobile to mobile before
