Saturn ION 2 rearview mirror is still fully attached but when you move mirror into a position it will not stay in that position.


Time to replace the mirror...the circulating ball must be jammed or worn out...At the bottom of the mirror head that attaches to the windshield is an allen screw head or small Phillips head...this must be loosened for the mirror assembly to pull off of the windshield...Best bet is to try your local salvage yard for a Saturn replacement..."Pic A Part" is a national yard...You should try working with an old mirror so you don't damage your current mounting...of course if the windshield magnet comes off, it can be re-attached with mirror adhesive glue...parts stores and auto dept at Walmart...Hope this helps.

Take it to either a body shop or a windshield repair place and they will probably do it for you while you wait & inexpensively, using the proper adhesive.

Rear view mirror fell off the windshield of my 2001 Buick Century,how do I reglue it?


This happened to me once on one of my cars. I took it to a business that replaces windshields and they glued it back on for free. I expected to pay something to have this done but did not have to.

Rearview mirror fell off. how do i remove the metal plate from the mirror to reglue


It may be held on by small set screw. (Allen wrench type) Or it just pops on and off, with effort.
To pop it off, hold the mirror as it would normally sit, and with that position in mind, you want to slide the metal plate down and out of the mirror clip, and you may have to pry on it a bit to get it started.

After you have reattached the plate to the windshield, you will have to apply almost the same force to clip the mirror back on.

Tips: Mark the location of the metal plate with a piece of tape on the outside of the windshield.
Make sure you clean the old glue off both the plate and windshield. Do not scratch metal plate.
Make sure you glue the plate on correctly. Do a trial fit on the mirror just prior to glueing.

How do I attach a review mirror for a 1994 thunderbird lx


Go to an auto parts store and buy rearview mirror adhesive. Your rearview mirror will separate from the small mounting piece that adheres to the windshield. Clean off the glass where it will sit. Follow the directions on the adhesive package and install the mount on the windshield. Once it dries, install the mirror on the mount. Rearview mirror adhesive is one of the most powerful adhesives on the market. Don't use anything but rearview mirror adhesive or the mirror will not hold.

Inside rearview mirror came off due to excessive heat. I can not get the metal plate (mount) off the stem to reglue to windshied. Should be a set screw or something hidden?


There could be. If there is a small opening, push a small, flat screwdriver about an inch into it while gently pull on the mirror. It should come off. But a rearview mirror repair kit and follow the instructions for installation. Good luck!

How do I remove the metal button from the rear of the interior rear view mirror on my 99 olds Aurora so that I can reglue it to the windshield and then reattach my rearview mirrort?


from the OUTside of the car, using a heat gun, heat the glass to soften the glue, then take something like a paint scraper, and work around the edges, until it gives up. Don't superheat the glass, just warm the general area back and forth over the metal unit. Then scrape it off.

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.
