you didnt say whether it was e36 or e46 but from what your ride says it looks like your car is an e36?!

you have to unclip the plastic piece from inside the door on the other side of the mirror. it doesnt take any removal of the door panel at all. there are two clips that hold this piece on to the door. then unplug the wire that runs to the mirror. then unscrew the two bolts that hold the mirror in place. mirror comes off no problem. install is the same but in reverse. should take no longer than 15-20 minutes.
