I just went through the ordeal of getting the metal tab off of the mirror for my 1994 Chevy S-10, so if yours is anything like mine, here's how to get that sucker off: Insert a small enoughstandard screwdriver into the rectangular slot in the bottom of the mounting bracket. Inserting it straight back, simultaneously push with the screwdriver against the piece of metal that it will touch and press against the metal tab in the opposite direction (the one it needs to go in to come out of the bracket) until it comes off. Once you get it off you may be chagrined when you see the simplicity with which it was kept in there ;)

If by clip you mean the "shoe" that is the shiney square piece of metal that is in the mirror holder it slides out of the holder with prying by a screwdriver. Be careful not to hurt yourself.

You have to take off the door panel and take the 2 bolts out holding the mirror in place

There should be one torx screw on the bottom side of the mirror bracket, remove it and slide the mirror up, if the whole mirror has fallen off go to a parts store and they will have a kit to glue the windshield mount back on, then slide the mirror back on.

There is a small screw...torx or Allen head that holds it to the mount. Loosen this and slide the mirror up. Comes right off.

The 1998 Cavalier does have a PCV valve. The valve is in the side of the valve cover, held in by a metal ring.
