    I'm installing a Gentex mirror and need to remove the stock mirror.
    How does the rear-view mirror come off the windshield tab?
    I messed a little with it but didn't want to force anything.
    And I tried a search, coundn't find nothing.

    On most vehicles there is a little set screw at the base where it attaches to mount on the windshield.

    No screw. I just replaced mine to a Gentex (temp/compass and map lamps -love it!) and I used a flat screwdriver to "lift" the little plastic flap that locks it in the glass mounted bracket and pull the mirror up. No force is needed.
