    Me to. Here's what I'm going to do. Go to a place that replaces windshields and ask them if they have the tool and have them do it. My car is a 98 Regal.

The mirror slides on a mounting button that is actually glued to the glass. There is a small screw on the underside of the neck, where it meets the windshield. Take that screw out and it will slide upwards, out of the bracket glued to the glass.

How to replace rear view mirror on 98 buick century


Most cars have the rear-view mirror and the little metal mount that it slides into. If the whole thing has fell off it is an easy fix.
Go to an auto parts place and tell the counter person you need the glue to glue your mirror mount to the windshield. They will know what to give you.
Then you clean the spot the mirror was hung with alcohol. Let dry
Then follow package directions. Basically you do a dab of glue on mount and press to windshield and hold for a bit of time. Then you wait like 12-24 hrs before sliding the mirror onto the mount.

On the other hand if you are asking for a new mirror you can get one from the Buick dealership - parts dept. or a junkyard or just attach any kind of rear-view mirror. Sorry I can't help you if you have a wired mirror.

How to replace a fallen off rear view mirror on a 95 buick regal


Hi,
I assume it is the type that is glued to the windshield (most GM are like that). You can buy a glue kit from the parts store for this. Fairly simple, the piece that glues to the windshield comes off the mirror unit, usually with a set screw. You use a razor blade to scrape off all traces of old glue from the windshield and the mounting piece (use a marker to out line where it should be re-attached, and I use fingernail polish remover to get rid of residue, then some windex)) then spread a thin layer of glue on the mounting piece and press to winshield for a minute or so, allow to dry. (instructions in kit will tell you exactly how long for the particular glue used.) Slide mirror unit into bracket and re-tighten set screw. Done!
Please rate this answer! Thanks, Mike

Go to a part store and ask for rear view mirror adhesive. And follow the directions on the package. I have the best luck with the permatex brand.

Replace the rear view mirror


Gently tap the base of the mount upwards. I just replaced mine and I thought there was a cover over the winshield mount, turns out it is just pushed on to the wedge that is mounted to the windshield. Good Luck, webree
