I am looking to remove my rear view mirror without breaking it. I looked for a set screw but did not see one. Can anyone tell me what to do?

Thanks....

Probably you must remove the covering of the roof...... Why should that mirror been removed?? Or should it be replaced by another one??

You don't have to temoce the headliner, the mirror is held on to the windshield with glue.

I need to replace the mirror because it is broken. I understand that there is a mount glued to the windshield but in most cars the mirror can be removed without breaking the mount from the window. I am hoping that someone has done it before and let me know how. It looks like it might just rotate but I do not want to make it worse than it is.

Thanks

I found the answer elsewhere on the web... If anyone is interested:

To remove the factory mirror just grab the stalk that attaches to the windshield. Twist the stalk clockwise about a turn and the mirror will be released from the lug that is glued to the windshield.
