Door mirror glass replacement

Folks

Apart from Mercedes, do you know any decent places that do replacement glass?

Its for an A class - MY2014, passenger side
I'll was planning on ringing Mercedes tomorrow, but their location in Belfast is a right pain in ass to travel to.
Went to Halfords today, but they didn't have anything for an A class

The LH (UK) is easy to find on eBay, the RH (UK) can be expensive if auto-dimming.

Both will be heated (two wires). But the auto-dimming one will have additional connector.

Got one off ebay.

Don't suppose you know if they're easy to change?
It sounds easy
Reading online, seems you push the mirror forward, then tilt the glass in towards the car, and down to let you get the hold of it, then the glass & backing plate pop out?

Yeah, you need to really jam your hand in behind and force it. It'll then pop off.

Make sure you've got a hand on the front of it too, so it doesn't come flying off snapping the two wires for the heating.

Thanks

But I only need to change the mirror glass, I came across this during my previous searches. She's removing the whole unit
