I am replacing the driver side rearview mirror (got busted in a parking lot). How do you remove the drivers inner door panel to access the 3 bolts holding the mirror on.

Unfortunately it has that harness, or you would probably only have to remove the upper extension. That upper extension(triangle) is held with three clips, and just pulls away. There are two procedures on trim panel removal based on options. here are both.
