How does rear view mirror come off?

Maybe an easy question but I dont want to break it. How do you remove the rear view mirror from the windshield?

First removed the little plastic cover at the base of the mirror, ( I used a really small flat blade screw driver) then there is a tab on the bottom inside of the mirror, press that then lift the mirror up. I just took my off when I tinted my windshield. PM me if you have any questions.

THis is all out of memory.. and it ain't all that good of one.

(on a 2007)
Look at the post that holds it to the window. Look at the backside (nearest window). There should be a little plastic cover piece that can be popped off.
After you pop this off, the mirror should slide off.

The windshield has a triangular metal piece in the window itself (so to speak). The rear view mirror has a similar sized and shape triangular piece that slides on the metal.

Good Luck!

Is that piece epoxied to the glass? I've got a homelink mirror, but I assume it's mounted the same way. I'd love to raise the mounting point higher, but I don't want to mess with epoxy.

I need to move mine up also. I keep finding collisions off the port bow when I have it folded down. My eye height is aty mirror height and it's either foled up or down and dangerous. Did you figure out if it could be moved? Thanks.

Ok, now it's coming to me: "I Left Port" so STBD must be right. 40 years ago, the USMC taught me "squid" talk and it still resides in the far reaches of my brain housing group
