To replace it, the door panel pops off and there is a wire harness and studs mount it to the door. Most of the time there are three studs held on with nuts.

Once you pop the panel off, usually that is a combination of screws and tabs that snap in to place, unhook the harness, that is a snap connection. Next, undo the nuts, holding on to them. Take the mirror off. To put the new one on, it is the reverse of what I described. Any more it is easier to replace the whole thing rather than trying to repair the old mirror.

Maybe I should have first asked, what parts are messed up and and what parts do you have?
