Rearview mirror removal

I have a '94 Galant that needs a new rearview mirror but I can't figure out how to get the bracket off. The mirror part fell off leaving the arm attached. Mirrors usually have some sort of screw holding them to the part that is glued to the glass but this one only has a slot at the base.
Thanks in advance for your help.

SOURCE: INTERIOR REARVIEW MIRROR FELL OFF

Just about all auto parts stores carry a little kit that includes slovent and glue to replace the metal "nub" onto the glass. There is a screw on the mirror that attaches the mirror to this "nub". Do not use force to remove the old glue or nub, windshield will crack.

SOURCE: Does a left-rear shock absorber

The hole that you refer to would have held the upper strut mount. This piece is part of the strut assembly which includes the coil spring. If you attempt the replacement of this mount yourself, it will require the use of a coil spring compressor (clamshell type which you can rent from certain auto parts stores or tool rental centers). You will have to remove the complete strut assembly from the car. In your case, what's left is the lower retaining bolt. You'll have to use great caution when compressing the spring in order to remove the nut that holds the upper mount in place. The spring is under a great deal of preloaded pressure, that if released can cause bodily damage. Once you remove the upper nut, you can replace the mount, or mounting plate itself. If you don't want to tackle this job yourself. I can tell you that the typical shop will charge you around 2 hrs labor to replace this part. (hourly rates vary) The cost of parts is extra naturally. Most shops I've worked for won't install parts other than those purchased through the shop. You may get lucky though. Buying your own parts is always cheaper, because you don't have to pay for the mark up. I hope this helps.

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.
