Its very easy to do on the pre facelift model at least.
You have to prise off the plastic triangle cover on the inside of the door unfortunately the metal clips tend to come off the plastic cover and stay in the door but you can then remove them from the door and refit to the plastic cover.
The wiring for the mirror has a connector just below the interior trim, if you carefully pull the trim slightly away from the door you'll see the connector. The connector should be clipped to the door with a sliding clip and is easy enough to slid off. Pull up the wiring and disconnect the connector, make sure the wiring doesnt slip back down behind the door trim - I dont think it will but better to be safe.
Next you need to unscrew the 3 bolts that hold the mirror to the door, be careful as the mirror would now only be held in place by the rubber seal. The mirror will now come free and pass the wiring through the hole in the door.
There are 3 allen key / star headed bolts holding the mirror to the mount, unscrew these and the 2 parts can be separated.
