there are some screws under the header trim panel so that has to be removed. The rear view mirror is removed by pulling back firmly.

Generally, folks get into sun visors in order to fix floppy ones. Search on floppy visor; there are some detailed threads.

1) Remove the rearview mirror - Hold with both hands and rotate toward you as you sit in the driver's seat. It is spring loaded. It will pop out.

2) Then there are 3 screws holding the mirror base plate on - remove them

3) Next remove the courtesy lamp unit and disconnect.

4) Now remove the sun visor "end" catch, there is only one screw holding it.

5) Remove a "hidden" screw on your left then pull the molding away.

6) Next remove the 2 screws holding the base of the sun visor on.
