    Use a torch to look into the back of the mirror,

    You will see the metal ring and lip you will want to lever against.

    and the body.

    You may want to protect the Mirror Body when levering.

    make sure there lined up with each other,

    and push the body onto the lens.

Refit the Mirror.

Job done.
