Side mirror removal

How do I remove the driver's side mirror adjustment?

I'm wanting to remove the driver's side mirror. I pryed off the interior triangle and got access to the three screws, but unless I take the adjustment arm off, it isn't going anywhere.

Look on the side of the adjustment opposite of the arm and you will find a small plastic piece thats wedged down inside a channel. Use a sharp point to remove the piece and the arm will come off.

Just a shot in the dark, but I think the adjustment lever has a screw on it. Hard to see it.

There might be a screw, I really don't remember one and it has bee a while since I did it. But, I did the removal thing without looking at a book first because thats the way I am. I don't consult a book until I can't figure it out.

RE: Side mirror removal

I saw the rectangular ribbed cover piece, but I was hoping to hear if I push it in, pull it out, slide it forward or back? I wanted to know something before I attacked the plastic with a mini screwdriver and got it all scratched and dented.
