You need to take the base plates off and the screws to hold the mirror on are there when you take the mirror off behind the baseplate. Hope this helps

From the inside of the door. Take the cover off and it should be there with 3 screws i think.

theres 2 screws behind the door panel, can i just pull the door panel off? or is there a proper way of doing it, dont want to break that aswell.

Go over the door panel and double check everything as there are quite a few screws to take out to remove the door panel. I believe someone said 11.

Then you will have to pull it off but it will be clipped in with those silly white clips that will probably break
