Question about Cars & Trucks
A portable car heater/defogger works fine as the heat melts the glue enough to remove the mirrow without fear of scratching or breaking the windshield. you can get one for about $ 11 on Amazon or ebay.

SOURCE: replace the rear view mirror
Gently tap the base of the mount upwards. I just replaced mine and I thought there was a cover over the winshield mount, turns out it is just pushed on to the wedge that is mounted to the windshield. Good Luck, webree

Is the mount made of metal or plastic? In either case, it will be attached to a "base" that is glued to the windshield. A metal mount should have a tiny little screw in it that pins it against the base. Loosen this crew and the mount should slide upwards (towards roof) off the base. A plastic mount should have a tab that you can pull on and slide it off upwards....

Testimonial: "Exactly what we thought was the correct way. But they found that the previous owner had also glued the mirror stem to the mount. "
On the inside trim, you can remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. Then you'll need to manipulate the panel and disconnect the door handle linkage from the door handle and disconnect the wiring for your controls. Then you can access the bolts that secure the mirror onto the door
