Question about 2001 BMW 3 Series

I knocked my rear view mirror of the windscreen and can't get it

I have a 2001 BMW 3 series. I have knocked my internal rear view mirror off. It seems that there is a clip mechanism on the windscreen and a suitable joing mechanism on the mirror arm itself, but I can't seem to get it to clip into position as I think it should. Have I broken it altogether or is there just a knack to getting it to clip home?

There should be a very small screw you have to loosen to put the mirror back in place and then tighten it back up again. i think it takes a very small allen wrench

Bumped the interior rear view mirror and the mirror section has detached from the base which is still stuck to the windscreen. It does not seem to easily reattach to the base.


There should be a small allen screw on the "windscreen" clip. Back it out, attach mirror and then tighten it back up.

Good Luck

Knocked rear view mirrow off


if you are talking the rear view mirror on the windscreen then use Loctite 406 or 401 super glue to refit it. care with the glue as it will stick skin together real quick. have a bottle of nail polish remover or acetone on hand in case of accident.

I accidently knocked off my rear view mirror


Are you referring to the interior mirror mounted on the windshield? If so, did everything come off the glass? You can purchase a repair 'kit' at any parts store. Just follow the directions, the epoxy to 'glue' it back in place is fast setting, and will work well and quickly.

Bmw 5 seies m reg the rear view mirror has been pulled off but the wires are still connected. how do i mend it.


If the small metal button is still attached to the window, the all you have to do is hold the base of the mirror on the window button at a 45 degree angle and then twist it straight to attach.
