Most vehicles have a small piece of plastic that is glue onto the windshield and then the mirror slides onto that piece. If that is not the case then get ahold of some adhesive remover and try that. It is deffinately not on there with screws.

SOURCE: passengers side rear view mirro replacement

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

The "button" or metal disc you speak of comes off the mirror assembly by loosening the small torx/allen screw hidden under the sheath that covers the mirror "stalk"...follow the rearview mirror directions, to the letter. If you cannot get the button out...carefully clean the face of that button off using a safety razor, being careful not to nick or abrade the button...make sure the same spot on the windshield by marking it with a felt tip marker on the outside of the windshield BEFORE you clean the residue off the glass!
Good Luck

SOURCE: How do you remove the rear view mirror from mount.

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. "

How can I attach a baby mirror to see my baby?

I assume that you want to see while driving, I use a suction cup backed mirror stuck to the windscreen to one side of the rear view mirror. If your child is in a rearwards facing seat you would need two mirrors one at the front and one towards the rear of the car. Hope this helps.

Bumped the interior rear view mirror and the mirror section has detached from the base which is still stuck to the windscreen. It does not seem to easily reattach to the base.

There should be a small allen screw on the "windscreen" clip. Back it out, attach mirror and then tighten it back up.

Good Luck

My rear view mirror has some fluid in it. I was trying to get it off and the support on the windscreen came unstuck. I want to re stick it, what should I use?

The parts store has a small kit to reattach mirrors. It needs a special glue. Go to the parts store and ask for a rear view mirror glue on kit.

Fitting rear view mirror

Hi you can buy little double sided pads to do this but make sure the cab is warm when you fit it.

Alternatively superglue but you will need to hold it in position and tape it up to dry, Pads are the better option. let me know if you need a stockist and I will post you the link.
