Here is what you find under the glass to give a clue...

It just snaps on! with four sturdy clips.. & a fifth on the inner edge? That may break on the old glass if pulled off, but don't matter if it's replaced..! Lift from the outer edge with some force & it will pop free..
Cheaper by comparison to a race horse...

I used a large sucker (no not jaylee :lol: , but the type sold by camping shops as a stick on base for awning poles to affix to caravans or whatever). I stuck it on the mirror and plucked it off without problems. I worried about using the levering method in case I broke the glass in the attempt. 8)

Club shop sells the mirror with plastic mounting that holds the mirror in place http://www.igmaynard.co.uk/bongo/mercha ... m#Exterior
but if you've still got the plastic mounting - http://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/i.html?_from= ... Categories
You can't polish a turd - but you can roll it in glitter.
