Replacing Left Mirror

I was hoping someone would shed some light on how to get to the left mirror to replace it. I just picked up a 2016 and that mirror is damaged. I have been to YouTube etc. but do see anything specific. It looks like you have to remove the whole panel surrounding the left compartment? I hope there is an easier way as it is just 2 bolts holding it on. Any help would really be appreciated.

I had to replace my left mirror on my 2006 as well. All I did was remove the panel next to the tachometer. It took some manipulation. So be patient and carefull.

On your 2016 besides replacing the mirror you Need to take a real good look at the mirror stay that the mirror connects to under the bodywork. Good chance it may be broken/cracked.

Gen3 you have to remove the panel that covers the IP.... remove headlamp adjuster knobs (don't lose the screws), two 4mm hex on upper portion either side of the speedo, one on left forward of glove box, one on right forward of battery cover. Unsnap, off it comes. Mirror nuts fully accessible.

I really appreciate this help. I took all the screws out. The panel is really on tight. I do not want to force it. Is there a trick to snapping it off? Thanks
