Step 2, above, from the manual, says "Remove rear view mirror". I've tried pushing and pulling, but it doesn't budge, and I'm afraid to break it if I push too hard.
What's the secret?

Pull towards you or push away...I don't think it matters. I pull. Two hands.
There are 2 spring loaded latches.

I also pulled my mirror rearward at a slightly downward angle using two hands. The spring loaded latches are at the rear of the mount and extend out from the right, and left sides. Grab the mount tightly as close to the base as you can and pull firmly. It should pop out. Applying gradual pulling pressure is less likely to work.

Now that I got the mirror off, step 6 says, "remove chrome plated rail (26)". I don't see a chrome plated rail on mine.

Any idea what that's about?
