'99 Subaru S clock removal

The small panel just above the rearview mirror, that houses the clock and two reading lights, is held by a single screw. But undoing the screw doesn't release the panel. Does anybody know how to remove the clock without breaking the whole damn thing?

Hello, if I remember correctly all you have to do is slide the panel towards the windshield. It should have two prongs that stick out above the panel that are holding it from being pulled down from the head liner on the side opposite the windshield. I hope this info helps...(subytech1)...

How do I remove/replace the interior rearview mirror in my 2004 gmc envoy?


The mirror base is usually glued to the windshield and the mirror slides over the base and is held in place with a small set screw. Loosen the screw and the mirror will slide off. ( This is the most common way mirrors are held in place )

How do I remove a front left panal from a 2001 cadillac.


Hi, to remove the front door panel, remove the plastic surround from the inside door handle. It contains the seat switches and door lock switch. It is held in place by four pressure clips, so you should be able to pull straight out. Remove the wires to the switches. Next remove the window switches by inserting a small, flat screwdriver under the forward end by the window lockout switch. Carefully pry upward. Remove the wires if you want to make removing the panel easier.
The triangular panel on the inside of the rearview mirror will need to be carefully pulled inward but NOT REMOVED. You might be able to do this with just your hand. Remove the white/red marker/courtesy light at the back side of the door panel. A small flat screw driver at the back side should release it. Remove the wire. There are two phillips screws that need to be removed. One is in the opening where the window switch panel was, the other is behind where the red/white light was. After those two are removed, grasp the door pull handle and pull STRAIGHT UP. Don't try to pull inward.

Hi there,

Firstly, remove the clear lenses from the overhead lights near rearview mirror. Then use a torx driver to remove two small screws holding bezel in place. After that, remove the bezel. Now you can access the the two torx screws holding mirror.

Best of luck...

Replacement of the side reaerview mirror on a


so you don't need to change the housing, but just the panel the mirror sits on right? If you mean the entire unit, then you'll need to remove your door panel (screws are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door) and remove the cover adjacent to your mirror to remove the bolts to remove the mirror.

If it's just the back and the mirror, you'll need to angle the mirror until you can see the release clips on the back of the panel that mounts it to the housing (Pivot Point)... be very careful as the clips can easily break....

How do I re-install the rear view mirror?


If it goes directly attached to the windshield, you will have to remove a metal piece of metal from the mirror base. This will have to be glued with epoxy glue to the windshield holding it it with tape overnight. After this you can put the mirror back.

Custom Rear view mirror


Hiya...ALL factory-installed rearview mirrors are installed with different wires due to options.
About 6 different rearview mirrors are installed with those options such as On-Star, light, compass, and those features which use different wires....THIS CANNOT be modified with different rearview mirror....**for example, the Equinox owner attempt to pull out a factory-installed base rearview mirror and put in different one that has compass/temperature built into the rearview mirror**

However, the wires are located inside the front headliner which requires removing the sunvisor (and possible removal of interior plastic trim part at the left/right ends of the windshield) prior to pull the headliner down, and a small metal philips or torx screw is used to secure the rearview mirror onto the bracket glued to the windshield.

The best solution is to leave the original factory-installed rearview mirror in place.
