Question RAM Phone Mount

I'm looking to buy a mount for my old Nexus 4 so I can use it as a GPS to get around. I got lost couple of times. I asked, and everybody seems to recommend RAM. My question is how do I remove that fork stem plastic cap where the RAM base goes in? It feels rather sticky and not willing to come out.

What do personally use? Any better products that don't use the fork stem?

Mine comes in tonight and I will let you know how it goes. But I'm guessing the proper tool for the job here is a set of automotive trim removal tools.

I used a knife to work it out just enough to be able to get a flathead screwdriver in. Once you get the screwdriver in there, it comes right out.

That worked perfectly! So I just put a blade in this area and went back and forth. It got pushed up easily.

Trim removal tools worked like a charm. I highly recommend getting a set sometime. They work whenever you want to pry something from something else without scratching anything. I use them all the time for the plastic rivets on motorcycles and cars.

You're right. Using profesional tools is always better. I ordered a set for future use. Thanks for the reference

I may be too late, but instead of using the stem mount, I just used the clamp mount and clamped it to the left side of the handle bar. I'll try to get a pic of my Ram Mount setup later tonight.
