Default removal of rearview mirror

can someone that has done this describe it better? I have been yanking on it and it does not budge. I should be pulling backwards more then down right?

Quote:
1. Disconnect the electrical connectors (2) at the rear of the mirror assembly.
2. Twist the mirror to one side and use one hand in order to support the edge of the mirror against the windshield. Using the other hand, pull the mirror away from the windshield with a quick jerk.

Apparently you have to get a little more pissed at it.

What a dumb design. I liked the allen screw much better.

Good job, and I see that you kept your face out of the way, too.

That'* just plain nasty. This is very similar to some of the Ford mirrors (and I hate them too). Not sure what year they switched to the set screw. I'll have to check my FSM later.
