Hello,I will be glad to try and assist you with this,Welcome to Just Answer.


Here is the procedure on how to remove the inside rear view mirror.Once the plastic paneling is removed around the mirror by popping it loose and removing it then the mirror just pulls down out of its socket,there are no clamps or screws holding it in place,just tension.

The paneling can be removed by using a flat blade tool to release the four catches (two up front and two in the rear) of the over head control panel,this is held in place with clips and the clips can be pushed in with a flat blade tool or the panel can be pried down carefully to where you can see the clips to release the entire over head control panel.

1 Unclip overhead control panel control module.
2 Pull inside rearview mirror down at one side.
NOTE: The inside rearview mirror is held by spring tension.
3 Disconnect connector from overhead control panel control module.
4 Remove inside rearview mirror.
NOTE: Installation Press spring bolt together with pliers and allow retainer to catch.
5 Install in the reverse order.
