    Without running out and looking at it, I'd guess there's a screw keeping it from sliding off. And maybe a plastic cover hiding the screw.

    It's easy...

    Twist the entire mirror counter-clockwise and then it should come out. When you install the auto-dim one, reverse what you did to get the stock mirror out. Let me know if you have any other questions

    Thanks

    Hank, your the man.

    FYI: Thought I would break it if I twisted it too hard. You need to pry out the bottom just a bit with a screw driver and then twist it 90 degree's. It uses a tension spring to hold it in place.
