I purchased a replacement rear veiw mirrot for my 84 300td. How do you get the old one out without damaging the headliner?

There's a spring loaded fastener on the stalk which is really strong, so just push it back in or pull it out hard. They're designed to come off with a large force, or put back in with the same force.

Caution: Do not remove the mirror face from the stalk, it's hard to put back in. We picked a good one from the yard but accidentally pulled the mirror from the stalk, now I don't want to break the glass by pushing hard just so the stalk ball joint would fit nicely.
