You can also try doing it with this method

But seriously, it's quite difficult to break the glass that way, as long as you work your way towards the center as you pry the glass away from its attachment.

My 997 mirrors are similarly built like the GTI, and I removed them w/o problem doing the same method as your link.

nice im def goiong to give that a try before i pry oon the glass

You won't break the glass. I have tried couple of times. The glass is pretty strong. But one thing I want to mention, DON'T tight the screws too much that are connecting to the cap because they are "plastic". Mine one is not working right now. :mad:
