Default Driver side mirror replacement

Hi,

A deer ran into the the driver's side of my 1985 Olds Ciera while I was going about 40-50 mph. It bent the mirror into the side window and the window shattered. I'm trying to remove the mirror. I removed the door panel, two screws that are on the top front of the window frame, and one bolt accessed through a hole in the metal panel at the mirror mount(??). I can't figure out how to access the heads of two screws and two bolts. See attached picture. There are two screws with heads under the window track and two bolts that come in from the outside. You can't see the screws in the picture but you can see one of the bolts. The other bolt is more toward the front of the car. I don't know which screws/bolts have to come off to remove the mirror.

Any suggestions how to get the mirror off?

Thanks,

Brian

I figured it out. To access the screws, lower the window and pull the window seal out of the window frame. In my case the window was broken so I didn't have to lower the window. You don't have to do anything with the two bolts. I pulled out a mirror (same color) and window from an 88-89 Custom Cruiser at the nearby You Pull-it for $26 . I'll finish putting them in tomorrow.
