Re: Passenger side rearview mirror loose.
You can, but realize that there is a risk that the glass might crack from the stress of disconnecting the 8 tabs on the mirror carrier from the motor plate.
Drive the mirror up to the extreme, and get some fingers behind the glass on the lower-outer corner. Pull towards you until you begin to hear the tabs pop out of their retainers. IIRC, there are 2 on the left, right and bottom, but mini hinges on the top two (?). Do this after the mirror has soaked up some sun and is hot. Or work with a hair dryer for a while. Warm plastic 'gives', cold plastic breaks.
