Internal mirror removal

My R3 has the internal mirror mounted to the rain/light sensor module at the top ot the windscreen. It's a different design to the S1's I've had before and I can't see how to remove it.

I want to remove it and look at fitting a rear-facing camera monitor in it's place.

I'm wary of brute force as I'm jinxed.

Anyone know how to do it?

@goddesshunter; thanks. However, the thread is for a mirror with a button directly attached to the glass as per Series 1 whereas my R3 has the rain sensor (as far as I can tell, the mirror attaches to the back of this not the glass) and I can't find a scredriver hole.
The sensor cover may be hiding the hole and I need to get the 2 plastic halves off to find it.
If I don't get any more info, I'll be introducing those 2 plastic bits to my old friend, brute force. . . . . and I'll update this with the results for those that follow.
