Your method of fixing that is anyway better - if you remove the lens the chance to break it is not too small.

When I have changed my steering wheel against a used one as I did, how do I find out that my airbag is not part of the replacement?

Outside mirror sensor

Hey guys, had the same. I am afraid you need to replace the dark mirror. My BMW dealer told me that always dark mirrors are simply broken. They are cheap in eBay.
Good luck.
