You can put the mirror on upside down and flip the mirror around.

The glue they use is not going to come off. I've used a hammer and chisel before and just broke the windshield

The main problem is that he also flipped it upside down so it won't even attach to the mount so I'm completely without a mirror

My neighbor works for an auto glass repair shop and he installed my windshield. He used a propane torch to heat the bracket on the inside of the windshield. After a short time he grabbed it with a set of pliers and popped it right off with no residue on the glass.
