I hit a deer with my 2014 xB and sheered off the side view mirror among other things.

I found a used replacement but I can't figure out how to remove the interior tweeter panel to get at the three bolts that hold the mirror on.

I'm afraid of cracking it or scraping it with a screw driver while I pry it off. Does anyone know if I have to remove the whole interior door panel to get that off or if there is some special trick on how to do it?

I don't have a gen2 but on most cars I have dealt with they just snap on with plastic push pins or whatever they are called. Being a newer car it's probably never been off before so its going to be tight. Do no use a screw driver, pick up some plastic trim panel removal tools to help pry it off if you can't get behind it enough with your fingers.

Thanks for replying.

I just tried again with a screwdriver wrapped in a cloth. I did scratch a bit of paint but i got it off. You were right, it was tight.

I had been worried because my mechanic told me I might have to remove the whole door panel if they were linked together.

Glad you got it to work, that sucks hitting a deer with a new car, hope the rest of the damage wasn't too bad.

Well the windshield is cracked and hood is dented.

Turns out that to get to the plug for the signal light/power is in the door panel so I'll have to get the whole door panel off. I suppose it is more of the same prying.

door panels are a little more tricky but not too hard. Look for a speaker install DIY on here, they should have placement of all the screws you need to remove before you start popping the panel. A door panel tool is a good idea, makes things easier, here is a link but you should be able to find them local at any auto parts store.

Thanks Greg, I also found a video
which shows a similar procedure.

However it turns out I don't have a screw in my door handle. I'm going to try prying these pieces out and hopefully that doesn't matter.
