does anyone know how to safely remove the rear view mirror from a 02 Regal? Theres a spring type clip that releases the mirror from the window plate thats glued to the windshield, releasing it with pliers on the kitchen table isnt going to be the same as on the car. Maybe stick a screwdriver up in there to release or a special tool?

I haven't seen how this works before, but maybe a smaller flat head screw driver would allow you to release it on the car? If I'm imagining this correctly.

the removal of the original mirror was a snap, as it was held on by a torx screw, the one I purchased off of Ebay snapped right up in there, just have to calibrate the compass
