Well I have done it. And it is a PIA.
The mirror has 3 bolts if I remember correct. One of them is on the door hinge. There is also a screw that can hold you up till ya find it. It is under the door glass rubber seal. You will also need to take off the inside door panel. I think I had about 4hrs into it. I should note, when I say 4hrs, this was at my friends shop who is a master mechanic. If I had been doing myself, it would have been a lot much longer R&R. One of the hardest parts was fishing the wiring harness thru the door.
