Question about 1999 Oldsmobile Aurora
From the OUTside of the car, using a heat gun, heat the glass to soften the glue, then take something like a paint scraper, and work around the edges, until it gives up. Don't superheat the glass, just warm the general area back and forth over the metal unit. Then scrape it off.

I had been seeking a solution to this problem for awhile and a fair amount of lurking various forums suggests that the pros heat the windshield with a heat gun ( or propane torch <--- yikes! ), then, when the button is hot enough that it would be uncomfortable to hold your finger on it for more than a few seconds, twist off with a crescent wrench. (there are parallel facets top and bottom of the button to get a good purchase on it.) I did this today myself and it worked like a hot damn. Intuition suggests that if you blast a windshield with a lot of heat in one place, it would likely crack, so I warmed the center third of the whole thing first.

I honestly believe that you may be able to just slide the mirror up, the little flat metal peice should stay attached to the windshield
