Use a heat gun to heat the glass and plastic moulding. When the plastic softens, pry back the short side a bit then slide a piece of fishing line under the mirror and pull it towards the other side, this will cut through the adhesive. Look behind the backing pad to locate the cover screws, drill holes in the pad to access the screws. Remove the screws and the front cover then use a screwdriver to pry the pad from the balljoint.If you're replacing the pad and mirror as a unit you should be able to install the small balljoint and metal rod allowing you to move the mirror around to replace the cover and screws then push the mirror and pad onto the large center balljoint.

Holy cow - what is that guy talking about?!?!?!?

Mine was broken and I replaced it a couple of months ago. Here is what I did:

1) There is a small plastic cover on the inside of the passenger door up at the front corner of the window. Remove this cover (it is held in place by clips).

2) Once you remove the cover, you will see the wires for the electric mirror and three screws that hold the mirror onto the door frame. Unhook the wires and then remove the three screws.

At this point you should be able to remove the entire mirror assembly from the door frame (it might be stuck on there a little, just wiggle it free).

3) Once you have the mirror off, you will have access to a couple of screws from the bottom side of the mirror.

I don't remember exactly if one of these screws that held the mirror in place or else you might need to push in on the top of the mirror itself so that you can look up through the gap and see back behind it. There might be a screw up in there that you need to remove.

I do remember it took some patience to get the screw back in once I had replace the mirror.

I would highly recommend purchasing a Chilton's repair manual - it helps out a lot.

You can find a backing plate for your 1998 Honda Accord passenger side mirror at most auto-parts stores. You can also find the backing plate at your local Honda dealership.
