    I have a cracked mirror glass on my S80. I can't figure out how to remove the glass. On my 740 the back of the glass was accessible from bolow. Does anyone know how I can get behind the mirror to remove the glass? thanks

    If it's anything like my 850 and most modern cars so far as I know, it simply
    pulls off towards the rear of the car - no need to "get behind" the
    mirror.

    It may help to set the mirror to its extremities of movement so you can
    get your fingers behind one corner. They do take a bit of a tug to come
    away though - you have to watch not to cut yourself.

    On the 850 the glass is also attached via two wires on spade terminals for the
    heating element - I presume all S80s have heated mirrors too?

    HTH,
