Not sure what you mean exactly by the "mirror stalk" but to remove the mirror you should just have to put a pair of pliers on it (may want to use a towel in between so you don't mar it up) and turn it a 1/4 turn to the left. It will come off. The mount on the windshield will stay.

I'm about to try this but I'm hesitant since I broke off the mount and the windshield on my F-150 trying to do this.

1/4 turn to the left, eh? :eek:

Yup, not a lot of force at all. So if it's not moving don't go over board. You might even be able to do it by hand instead of any tool.
