2008 Hino side view mirror cover removal problem

Hi!
I have a 2008 Hino 338. I'm replacing with a new convex mirror and notice that the old mirror back cover has no screws. I don't want to mess up the cover and want to know how to get the cover off without using saws.
Thanks!

If its the same as the 2011, use a thin flat blade screwdriver in the slots on the sides where the back meets the front bezel. Pry gently toward the bezel so that the blade lifts the edge of the back plate away from the housing until you hear it release. Do the top and bottom on one side and it should just pop off.

Even doing it right, I broke one tab on my convex mirror, but it holds fine with 3. The larger mirror has 6.

I tried that. It won't.

But it will hold just fine with 3 clips.
