Default 3.2TL rearview mirror

the mirror on my 99 3.2tl has began to give me an ocean kind of thing. The
liquid inside has all moved to the bottom, and sways as i drive. (luckily
none has come out yet).

I went to the dealer and put down 100$USD for a new one, but does anyone
know of a step by step on how to install it/deinstall the old one?

Thanks for your help
Erich KEane

The service manual does not offer any advice on physically replacing the
mirror (the section on test/replace simply says "replace the mirror
assembly", so I guess it must be obvious after you take out the ceiling
light unit.

The connection for the mirror electronics is under (over?) the ceiling light
unit. Directions for getting that out are as follows: carefully pry off the
lens with a small screwdriver; remove the four mounting screws; disconnect
the 3P connector from the housing (it appears to be above the center of the
unit in the service book picture.

Be very careful when removing mirror. It is easy to crack the windshield.
The mirror is removed by sliding the assembly downwards. Book shows placing
a screwdriver on the base and rapping with a hammer gently! Sounds dangerous
huh?

I would really like to replace that "automatic" adjusting mirror with the
old "filp it yourself" style.
It just does not dim out enough for me at night.
Wonder if one targeted for a Honda Accord would fit ?
