Hello all,
Does anyone know an easy way to safely remove the rearview mirror from the windshield? I do not need to remove the "sticky base" from the glass, just the entire mirror.

Thanks all!

Not owning a 2005 model... I can't be sure... but I think there is a "tab" on the bottom of the windshield mounting bracket. Push up on the tab... then the mirror should slide up and off the mounting bracket :?

Hola nfafan!

Not sure if my '01 is the same as your '05, but I have removal instructions [HERE]. Happy RAV'n!

Thanks!

Thanks tons for the info!!

That mirror mod looked great also, if my Wink install goes FUBAR, I may try that myself. Do you know if the factory "sensor" mirror is plug and play?

Thanks!

My 05 mirror was easily removed from the base plate with an allen wrench.

BTW, those are nice pics and instructions above.
