SOURCE: I need to reattach the rear view mirror to the

Just finished this job 5 mins ago. To disconnect the lights, use a small screwdriver to lift the locking tab on the plug. It's on the top of the plug. You should now be able to pull the plug from the socket. First check for locking screws on the housing. If there are none, take a scrap piece of 2x4 and place on edge. Place the pivot arm of the mirror on top edge of 2x4 with flat side of mounting plate facing down. Gently tap the plate out of the housing using a screwdriver and small hammer.

How do I reattach the interior rear vision mirror on Toyota 98 corolla


If the rear view mirror mount has seperated from the windshield you can buy the glue kit at most auto parts stores. Any windshield installation company will also install it for a small fee.

Rear view mirror map lights are out 2000 buick century


Mine does that occasionally intermittently but if you look around in the back of the mirror you'll see some wires, those are most likely broken.
I had the mirror completely fall off the windshield and had a windshield installation company reattach it because I knew it took a specialty glass glue, well they broke one of the wires but not completely so it shorts out but a wiggle makes the lights come back on and I'm just to busy to take the mirror off the mount and fix it right. You can remove the mirror from the piece that attaches it to the windshield.
Check those wires, good luck

My rear view mirror fell off and the little metal piece is still in the mirror. How do I get the metal piece out of it?


there should be a set screw that comes loose with an allen wrench. Get a mirror kit from the parts store to glue it back on the windshield. After it dries, reattach the mirror.

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.
