159 mirror covers

I've just tried changing the body coloured door mirror covers for Ti ones. I managed to remove the glass ok, and found 3 of the 4 tabs that lock the covers inot place, but cannot find the fourth, and this is preventing the cover from being removed. This tab appears to be behind the mechanism for the movement of the mirror, any idea how I get to it, or do I just leave it for the pros to do when I get the bumper sprayed next week?

you dont need to remove the glass, just grip the plastic cover with the end of your finger tips/nails and pull it off, it may seem like its going to break but it wont

Where did you get Ti chrome mirrors from? is there an aftermarket swap you can buy?
