Removing my mirror caps - any tips?

Guys anyone followed this video to remove their mirror caps?


I've seen the other video on YouTube here with seems WAY more involved


Ive also seen that some people have snapped bits trying to remove them, anyone have any tips to share or maybe BMW instructions please?

I thought I saw a post somewhere but I'm using the app and searched but couldn't find any other posts, sorry if there is one in advance.

It's not hard at all if you are a little bit handy.
Just tilt the mirror all the way down en release the two clips inside and carefully remove the cap with the help of a plastic tool.
It pops right off and then unscrew 3 screws to remove blinker. That's it.

Good video like the way i do it:


Just watch the movies and go for it

Thanks 😊 I saw that video and wasn't sure if it's the same for the G20. Have you removed them yourself using that method?

Will need to have a gander at that vid as previously watched the Kies video& read comments on the US which suggested it could be really easy to crack the glass.

The glass is fragile indeed, so I am not a fan of Kies his way for removing the mirrorcaps.
Do it the safer way like I said above
