If you want to preclude any chance of the airbags going off, do what the owner's manual suggests: Disconnect the battery and wait 20-minutes before beginning any work. That way, you are assured that the storage capacitors in the airbag circuitry are discharged and there is no danger of them recharging and going off if you goof. Disconnecting the battery also prevents any other kind of mishaps while messing around with the wiring like an accidental short circuit, etc. Please do provide more info about your mirror - manufacturer, cost, etc.
