Any Instuctions on how to replace outside mirrors?

I was able to install my car stereo using the instruction on these forums with no previous car installation experience so now im in love with this site thank everyone!
Now, I have to replace both of my outside mirrors for my Pontiac G6 2005 (Damn parking lots). Im purchasing my parts from:

It's in the Chiltons (which I highly recommend):

Door trim panel removal is also covered.

That picture is missing one bolt
There is also another bolt under the rubber cap forward of the door panel

This will help you a little more...

I haven't made it through all the great How-Tos in that forum yet. Now that's the way to do a How-To. With lots of pictures. One thing that caught my eye was he was using a screwdriver as a pry tool. There are nylon trim pry tools that I would use instead. Its almost impossible to damage trim pieces using them. They are well worth the few dollars they cost. In rare instances you still need the stiffness of a metal pry tool but not very often. Also, often just using yours hands is all you need. But there is nothing like doing a successful DIY & ending up with trashed trim from a pry tool slip. My 2 cents. Here is the general idea:

Also available on ebay.
