How do I remove the rear-view mirror from my 2001 Forester?
The rear-view mirror on my 2001 Forester just fell off (the glue holding the mirror base to a rubber pad attached to the windshield gave out). The mirror proper is held to the base by a clip. I've tried compressing the clip with needle-nosed pliers (fairly coarse-tipped: a Leatherman tool), but have been unable to separate the mirror from the base. It appears that there should be a way to loosen the clip from beneath, had the mirror not fallen off and I wanted to remove the mirror in place. How do I separate the mirror from the base so that I can reattach the base to the windshield, then the mirror to the base? Thank you.
