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.

Luckily, the Rain Sensor Cover does NOT require your pal Brute Force to make an appearance.

Tilt the mirror down and gently pry between the two halves and they come easily apart. The mirror support is an integral part of how the Sensor Cover is held in position.
