Do I need to take the mirror glass out before trying to remove the cover.
Most of the removal instructions do'nt indicate this. They just explain where to push the screwdriver in to remove the cover.

If it's a 211 no, the cover comes round the mirror.

Just done this on mine. As Carl said, no need to remove the glass, but you might have to wiggle the cover around it once you've released it. If the cover won't lock back in place when you refit it, you need to bend the metal latch outwards slightly - took me ages to realise this!
