The mirror snaps into place(spring loaded).
To remove (inside) rear view mirror:
Place fingers as close as possibe to the center shaft, pulling down AND slightly towards the winshield, be prepared to ONLY pull 2 to 3 inches away! There is more room but being braced to pull only this distance is to prevent ripping the wires out! The wires unplug right at the mirror, then the mirror is free. There is a nut on the end of the spindle which holds the mirror and shaft to the metal plate. This nut was loose.
