How do I glue on the rear view morror for my Ford Freestar 2005
The rear view mirror in my 2005 Ford Freestar fell off. I got the glue to replce it and the guy at the autoparts store said that the bracket on the back would just unscrew but there are not screws. What do I do to get the bracket off?

if the mirror clips/slides onto a small bracket that is incorporated into the windshield then it is a case of sliding it back on , check that the ridge either side of the mirror bracket are'nt cracked or chipped as then the mirror wont stay in place ,on some models the mirror base sticks directly to the windshield so will need to go to a repair shop to get the appropriate glue , hope that makes sense
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.
There is a small set screw that holds the mirror to the small metal button. Most vehicles use a small Phillips screw but some use a Hex Key Wrench (Allen Wrench) type screw. Slide the mirror off the button. Make sure not to remove the glue before you put the button back on. Trace around the glue with a grease pencil on the outside of the windshield before you remove it. So you know exactly where to replace the button. You can buy a Rear View Mirror Adhesive Kit for around five dollars.
The button is locked into the mirror shoe by a flat spring. Find the notch at the bottom of the shoe and insert a small flat screwdriver to push the spring away from the button. Some force may be required.
