    Question Can't remove inside rear view mirror

    I'm trying to remove my standard inside rear view mirror from my Vectra C facelift (2006) in order to replace it with an autodimming one.
    But I can't get the thing removed from the windscreen.

    I've read in other threads that it should glide downwards the windscreen towards the dashboard.
    When trying it slides indeed about 0,2 inches and then stops. It feels if its been blocked then.

    What should I do? I don't want to damage either the mirror or screen.

    There is a little tab that needs to be pulled away from the screen to allow it to slide.

    Unclip the plastic cover as much as you can and you should see it.

    I used a small screw driver to pull the clip down.

    Thanks, that did the job.
    Very simple to do when you know how.
    I put a small srew driver between the top of the plastic cover and the windscreen. Then sliding down was easy.

    Thanks to Lee GSI
