Push the mirror all the way so the side towards the bike is pushed in as far as it will go. On the outer side you can now see the ring holding the ball of the mirror. Use a screwdriver and push the spring towards the mirror holder.
The mirror should pop out.
To install put some tape on the mirror to hold on to. Make sure the ring spring washer is positioned correctly, now push the mirror in to the works so it snaps in. Only push over the ball area or you will crack the mirror.
This is pretty much from the manual. Which is handy to have.
