Popping the mirror our seems fraught with disaster. It would be my luck I'd shatter that for sure.

Your mirrors should be held in with a movable cam that is accessible through the small hole in the bottom of the mirror. If you can look through the hole, you will see several notches. These notches are used to move the cam and release the mirror. I use a slender screwdriver to access and move the cam


This is what the cam looks like once the mirror is out. You can see the 4 notches across the bottom. Since the cams aren't moved much, sometimes they will need to be persuaded to move and release the mirror.

Good luck

new one on me - i've never seen that before - all the porsche mirrors i've ever worked on had clips like door panel clips holding the glass in - yours certainly look easier to deal with - and yes glademister "popping" the mirror out can be a shattering experience - like the cams above those clips can become stuck after years and need "persuasion" to release

Chin spoiler

Installed a nice used chin spoiler I purchased from a forum member. Next cosmetic fix will be the grill.
