  1. First, we have to remove the adjustment bracelet lock. To do so, use a small, flat head screwdriver on the lock grooves, then gently push towards the door. Then, after the lock has moved all the way to the end, place it on a safe place so it doesn't get lost. Once the lock has been removed, slide the bracelet to the left, parallel to the door.

  3. Remove the 3 Philips screws that hold the mirror in its place. It's best if you remove the ones located in the bottom first, then, holding the mirror, remove the last one. The idea is to avoid the mirror from falling to the ground.

  5. Now, with the adjustment rod all the way to the right, introduce a plastic tool, or a taped screwdriver and gently pry open. The mirror has a socket where a round shaped pin is held in place. Once the socket has been separated from the pin, lift the mirror pulling in diagonal/ upward movement against the base to remove the mirror from the adjustment rod, marked in the blue rectangle. Wipe off all the dirt inside. Lubricate the spring and grease both the regulator and the metallic pin. At this point, if your mirror isn't broken, you can reassemble everything, following these steps in reverse order.
