Default Remove Rearview Mirror

I tried removing my rearview mirror tonight on my 05', and I couldn't get it. Is there a special way to do it?

Is the allen screw on the top part of the base or the bottom because there are small openings on both ends?

I don't think my rearview mirror has the allen screw because I don't see it. It almost looks like I have to take a small flat head screwdriver and go inside the base and gently hit it to make it come off. I know when looking at the base, the metal clip that goes on top of the base will not come off.

Okay nevermind I got it. What I did was, I had to take a small flat head screwdriver and go through the small opening under the base and lightly tap with a hammer and the mirror started sliding up on the window mount until it was completely off. I double checked my mirror and there wasn't a allen screw at all. But thanks STL for responding to my topic. I appreciate it man.
