I have a 1998 lincoln with a damaged rearview mirror and I don't know how to remove and reattach a new one. How do you get the replacement mirror to release the slide in metal part that holds in the mirror.

Under the mirror there is an allen screw. you will need a allen wrench to loosen it to remove the old and install the new. make sure you loosen to the left and tighten to the right. good luck.

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.
