Easiest way to do it is to remove the cupholder. It has clips on both sides. You have to prey it apart ot see the clips. Then push the mirro switch up from the bottom.

For future reference please start your own thread when posting about a problem
The switch is easy, just use a pocket sized screw driver and pop it straight up.

are you sure that the switch pops right out? i have a new switch in front of me and the connector goes to it from the front, so you would have to push it towards the back of the car and then pull up but pushing it back is impossible... any more info of how to remove that damn switch? i bought my car with it broken and cant adjust my mirrors lol

Did just the know snap off? If so then it is just a clear plastic stud that broke. Pull that out and press the new **** in.

I just pushed down the cup holder half way down, stuck my finger inside and pushed the switch out. it took me around 30 seconds to replace the whole thing and push it back in
