Honda Pilot Outside Rear View Mirror

Q. Hello, I will be removing and installing a new right side door mirror on my 2004 Honda Pilot EX-L. Can you tell me how to do it, possibly with illustrations? I don't know where to begin. I can't even figure out how to get the old one off.

A. You're lucky with this one, you do not have to remove the door panel to get the outside rear view mirror off.

Here's how do replace it:
