rear view mirror-sun visor loose-560sl

Hello all,

I am a new member and this is my first post. I read an old message saying that the ball joint where the sun visors on my 560sl are attached can be tightened up (the visors keep drooping and it's becoming real annoying!).

The procedure is too remove the rear view mirror and the trim piece to access a hidden screw. My only problem is that I have no idea how to remove the rear view mirror. I can't find any screws and it doesn't seem to snap or slide off. Anybody have any insight. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Just give it a hard yank. It is held in place by a spring loaded detent. The new one just snaps back on.
