Hm...there used to be an excellent how-to with pics somewhere, I think it was the newcougar.org web site, but I just checked and it seems to be gone now.

Basically, you will need to remove the inside door panel in order to the get to the bolts that hold the mirror to the door. You just unplug the wiring and unscrew the casing and it slips off pretty easily, then reverse the steps to put the new one on. Sorry, it was about a year ago that I performed this and I have forgotten the specifics :(

Okay, I just remembered that mirror removal/installation instructions are included on the Ford Service Manual CD I've got. I can't figure out how to save the (rather crude) diagrams, but here are the text instructions which should hopefully get you pointed in the right direction. There are basically 2 parts: 1) Removing the interior door trim, 2) Disconnecting the mirror wiring and casing....and then reversing these steps to put it back together.

Here's the instructions:
