1st remove the door panel. If you don't know how, remove the three torx screws around the door panel... two on the outside and one on the inside edge by the hinge. There are two more bolts under screw covers at the lower edge of the door panel. One's phillips and one's a torx. Finally there's a phillips screw under the cougar's head emblem screw cover. Then remove the side mirror bezel on the inside of the door by removing the three retaining clips. Remove the door weatherstrip by pulling it straight up. Detach the rubber surround of the mirror bezel by detaching the insert from the window channel, then lift the rubber surround to access the mirror fixings. Disconnect the electrical connector. Finally, remove the mirror by removing the three retaining nuts and pulling the mirror out, keeping note of the gaskets.

Any problems PM me.

I took a different approach i waited untill there was a nice big ford pickup truck in my lane and let him just hit the thing off, along with damaging the side of my cougar. I wouldnt suggest it to anyone though

You know at first I thought "McDonald's Drive Thru," but I decided to see if I could be serious for a moment.

The only true way to remove your mirrors is to go through an automated car wash;)

Gotta love an honest story, you know one where you don't hear, "You should've seen the other guy."

Mine was removed quite easily. Just find a construction zone on the interstate, and if there is a cone sticking out in your lane, it'll knock that mirror right off.
