I was told to remove the exterior trim in order to replace the power mirror.  I have the mirror
but it looks like I have to get it under the rubber seal and I,m afraid I will wreck it.

What exterior trim is in the way? From the pictures I saw, it looks like you remove the interior sail panel, unplug the electrical connector and remove the three 10mm nuts. You could try a hair dryer or hot water to soften any rubber encountered.
