Question about 2002 Mitsubishi Galant
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.
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.

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.

Spray some WD40 into the latches on the side of the doors then open and close the doors several times firmly.This will unstick the door adjar switch most of the time.Start with drivers door first.
