How to remove inside rear view mirror?

I got a great deal on an auto-dimming mirror. It has a wedge mount, so I need to install an camlock adaptor to make it fit.

The problem is I can't figure out how to remove the factory mirror from the windshield base.

Anybody remove the insdie rear view mirror before?

Tom,

Here is what my Haynes manual saids to remove the inside mirror.

"Pry between the mirror mount and the notch in the base of the mirror stalk with a screwdriver tip covered with tape. There is a hairpin-type spring holding the mirror stalk in the base. Push the screwdriver about 3/4-inch to release the spring."


Be careful and don't force it or you could crack your windshield.

I have not tried this.

Hope this helps.

George

last time i remove my 97 camry rear view mirror, i recalled i used a very long and small screw driver, insert it in the notch hole at the base of the mount, push the screw driver in while move the base of the mount, it comes right off, you just need something long, narrow and strong enough to pry down the clip, it will come off. take a little patient tough.
