The correct way would be to replace the unit, but there are many expoxies or two part glues that might get you by. Try JB weld, as I have found it to be the best. Use plenty of it. I am assuming that you do not want to spend the money to get this repaired correctly, and this is the only reason I would suggest JB-Weld, or another epoxy.

Is there a special glue for the replacement of a rear view mirror or is there a special mount to get the mirror to on the window. We have tried twice with the adhesives and it fails because of the weight...


There is usually a allen head screw that holds the mirroe onto its mounting device, may have a snap on cover over it for cosmetic purposes. It can be found right were the metal peice attaches to the window on the side facing out. You must first stick the metal mounting bracket to the window, allow to dry for the recommended time the adhesive calls for then reinstall the mirror after it has has sufficient time to dry, tighten the screw, and replace any cosmetic covers after the mirror is rreinstalled. Good Luck!

How to replace a interior rear view mirror?


if it came unglued from glass which is what it sounds like, any auto parts store should have a special package of "rear view mirror glue or cement" it is on the shelf. it should come with the all important cleaning solution or wipe, but before you clean (scrape with razor blade scraper, glass and bracket )off old glue, mark the position of mirror, do this on inside or outside of glass with tape or a marker. the mirror has a bracket its mounted to, look closely for a set screw and remove bracket, it might be a tiny slotted screw or hex head (allen head ) note position of bracket in relation to mirror because your going to glue the bracket only to the glass at first and when the bracket is upright the mirror will slide down on to bracket, then tighten the set screw! be sure to follow instructions EXACTLY on package of glue. would be a good idea to get two packs, just in case first try goes awry. its cheap!

Replace drivers side mirror 2001 chevy tahoe,mirror only


To just replace the mirror glass there are a few different styles, but they all pull off. I suggest you wear gloves and glasses. Get a grip behing the glass and pull out. You should see a round circular bracket in the center. The new mirror just snaps into the bracket. Center new mirror and push evenly in the center of glass until it snaps into place. Dont push in by holding the edges, you'll break it. If you don't see the circle or it comes off with the glass it was too damaged for just glass. Power or manual mirros differ inside, but the mirror replacement is the same. If you mean the entire mirror only, remove door panel. Lower window, remove electrical connector if power, remove 3 bolts attaching mirror to door. Remove.

Rear view mirror, hanging by wires. can't remove wires or don't know how, the silver piece will not come off. no screws to remove anything, I need to get this down. I can't drive with it hanging.


The wires unplug from the back of the mirror. It is a very small plastic plug that clips into place and can be pulled off with wiring connections to plug intact; when done with repairs, plug it back on.

The little silver piece you are referring to is the mounting button which is normally affixed to the windshield by glue/adhesive substance. It is difficult to remove from the mirror bracket but is designed to be removed by depressing the black metal tang attached to the bracket at the front base of the button where it slides into the bracket. It took me 15 minutes to figure it out and 10 tries to get it depressed while also sliding the button out over the metal tang. Good luck! The button will then need to be cleaned and new glue/adhesive purchased from auto parts store for $5-$7. Glue it back, wait a while and remount mirror on it.

How do i get the rear view mirror back on?


I am assuming you are talking about the interior rear view mirror and not the side rear view mirror. Most auto parts stores sell an adhesive glue to fix the interior rear view mirror. Most of these mirrors have two parts to them. One part is the bracket that glues to the windshield and the other part is the rear view mirror assembly. Before gluing the bracket to the glass check and see how the mirror assembly attaches to the bracket. There will often be a screw that fixed the two together.
