05 taurus external mirror replacement

I am trying to replace the whole external driver side mirror shell for
a 2005 ford taurus. I have read that I need to remove the black
triangle deal from inside the car and it is held together by one screw.

I have found that screw and removed it but the plastic triangle still
does not come off. It appears that it stuck on the bottom side and i
dont see any more screws. I can see how the shell screws in but cant
do anything until i remove the traingle. Is there a trick to removing
it? elbow grease? a big hammer? special way to slide it out?

I would really hate to go to a mechanic and be charged like crazy just
to do a 10 minute job.

It most likey slides up or the the side, kind of unhooking by sliding I
guess you could say. It could also have a push in type fastener somewhere.
Just carefully pull, pry ect. till you figure it out.

Re: 05 taurus external mirror replacement

it seems like something is holding it in the corner but i cant manage
to get it loose. I dont want to break it and i dont see anything that
its attached to. i wonder if i just break it what effec it would have,
i would still be able to screw it in. has anybody actually taken this
off?

i do appreciate your help.
