Is there a video on how to get the mirror off in the first place?

Pop off the black plastic cover on the neck of the mirror that faces the windshield. Pull apart the connector. Insert a long thin screwdriver thru the two holes cast in the black metal part of the neck, and rotate the screwdriver counterclockwise and the mirror will pop out of its mount.

Do you still have that mirror maybe.. non auto dimming for C7 corvette (frameless)? I would need one extra if it is the right mirror.

Thank you in advance

Yes I do, frameless manual dim mirror out of my 2017 1LT GS. Perfect like-new condition. See your PM.

Unfortunately, there is no way to disable this " feature" short of covering the sensor.

I posted upthread exactly where this sensor is.
