    Anyone know how the rear view mirror comes off the windscreen? It's the standard one not the auto dimming one? Is it twist/screw/pop off maybe known as Camlock or wedge. I'm not home till the weekend and could do with knowing.

    Thanks.

    Cheers mate waiting for the new one to arrive got a sneaky feeling in going to have to get my mate in the USA to get me the $14 adapter unless I can get someone to change the mount stuck on the glass which I doubt very much due to the risk of the screen breaking but well see when the new one turns up otherwise superglue time lol

    I've had a lot of luck getting various "glued objects" from glass with a heatgun and plastic scraper, that might be the trick. I was going to buy one of the superwide mirrors for mine, but with it just clipping over the top I figured it would look a bit naff.

    Have you got any pictures of the Gentex?
