No, i have no idea what those videos are talking about that says you have to do this, i tilted the mirror glass down, shined a light in there and you can see 2 tabs on each side up top. I took a flat screwdriver with the shaft wrapped in electrical tape in case it touched the housing, turned it will pulling the cover off. Did the same on the other side, then it pops off pulling from the outside in at an angle. It VERY easy, should take less than 5mins to get the cover off. There are ONLY those two clips you can get to without an issue, removing the glass is not needed.
