In most states it is against the traffic law to have something obstructing your view, including hanging objects from a mirror.---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

SOURCE: HOW DO YOU REPLACE THE PASSENGER SIDE VIEW MIRROR

On the inside trim, you can remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. Then you'll need to manipulate the panel and disconnect the door handle linkage from the door handle and disconnect the wiring for your controls. Then you can access the bolts that secure the mirror onto the door

How to install side view mirrow


You can blame it on your significant other, blame it on the kids or blame it on someone hitting it in the crowded parking lot. Whatever the reason, the side view mirror on your car is broken, missing or hanging by a thread. It's not that hard to replace. With a few common household tools, you can replace it yourself in less than 30 minutes. Forget the body shop or service station; they're going to charge you more in labor than you paid for the part online.

How to Install Side View Mirrors
1.Open the door wide and roll the window all the way down so you don't damage it.
2.Locate the plastic molding on the opposite side of the rear view mirror at the very front corner of the door's window. It'll probably be black plastic triangular-shaped molding, but it may have the same hue as the interior of the vehicle.
3.Gently but firmly pry that triangular molding off with the screwdriver. It's only snapped into place and there's usually a small ridge or lip that seats down into the window cavity. This ridge/lip should be no more than a quarter of an inch into the cavity. Pry it from a couple of spots until it comes free.
4.Locate the wire harness and unplug the mirror if it is an electric-powered mirror.5.Locate the three nuts inside the cavity of the door. There may be some foam plugs or insulation you'll need to move out of the way, but you can replace them after you install the new mirror.
6.Remove the nuts with the ratchet, extension and appropriate-sized socket. Be careful not to drop them into the door cavity.
7.Remove the old mirror and install the new one.
8.Tighten all three nuts. Plug the mirror into the harness if it is a powered one and test it before you close everything upThank you for using FixYa hope this will help your problem and don't forgetto rate me.thanks,Josefina

Seperate rearview mirror from plate both came off


f

Replacing the rear view mirror on a Ford Explorer is easy. The only obstacle you might encounter is fear of breaking the glued metal plate off the windshield. Do not sweat it. You can buy glues at the auto parts store to reattach the mirror to the windshield (Difficulty: Moderately Easy).

Instructions:
  1. Tap gently at the base of the mirror where it slides on over the metal plate glued to the windshield and pull upward. Some rear view mirrors have a small Allen screw that tightens the base of the rear view mirror to the metal plate. Disconnect the electrical plugs if your rear view mirror has them.
  2. Pull the rear view mirror clear of the metal plate. Clean around the metal plate glued to the windshield. If the metal plate has come off because of harsh weather or from hammering too hard at it, reattach it with glue designed for this job.
  3. Clean the area where you will be attaching the metal plate on the windshield. Apply the glue evenly on the surface of the metal plate that will go against the window. Be sure to clean and scrape off all the old glue before applying the new glue. Gently push the metal plate against the windshield in the spot you wanted it and hold tight for five minutes.
  4. Wait a day before putting the base of the mirror or replacement rear view mirror onto the metal plate. Do not force the base over the plate. Forcing it will likely dislodge it again. Press firmly until it will not slide along the grooves of the metal plate. Reconnect your electrical plugs and tighten the Allen screw if your new mirror has one. Adjust the mirror according to your safe viewing preference

Hope help with this (remember rated this help). Good luck.

How do i get the rear view mirror back on?


I am assuming you are talking about the interior rear view mirror and not the side rear view mirror. Most auto parts stores sell an adhesive glue to fix the interior rear view mirror. Most of these mirrors have two parts to them. One part is the bracket that glues to the windshield and the other part is the rear view mirror assembly. Before gluing the bracket to the glass check and see how the mirror assembly attaches to the bracket. There will often be a screw that fixed the two together.

I need to replace the Passenger rear view mirror on a 2002 Chevy


Use a long flat head screw driver with electrical tape wrapped around it(to prevent scratches). Have some one help you and hold a light so you can see the snaps on the inside, be really nice about it and pry the panel from the door frame.

Replacement of rear view mirror S60


We own a 2004 XC 70 Volvo AWD. The interior rear view mirror decided to die. There is a discolored patch (bubble type) in the middle section of the mirror. A new one will set us back a cool grand! Does anyone out there know how to fix it?
Volvo dealer says:
  • It cannot be replaced with a used one.
  • It's software operated.
  • A similar one from a similar car will not work, It will play havoc with other components, ie: sun roof, electric windows, etc.
All I needed was a new battery. They installed a new one, and I think that's waht caused the rear view mirror to go bad. They probably shorted the system as they were installing the battery.
Thanks
