Question about 1999 Oldsmobile Aurora

1 Answer

Gang - the answer has to be specific to my '99 Olds Aurora rear view mirror. Generic and Audi information that I have received several times is not specific to the Olds Aurora mirror. The mirror disconnected from the windshield. I don't need any more advise about how to re-attach a mirror to the windshield My only queston: **99 Olds Aurora only pls The mirror is 3 parts: (1) the attachment to the windshield (I have that covered); (2) the mirror itself (great shape); and(3) The attaching arm that is somehow secured under the headliner. Question - on the '99 Olds Aurora how is the arm reattached securely into the receptacle under the headliner? 1) How do I reinsert the mirror housing support bracket back into the headliner. The '99 Olds mirror assembly - the actual mirror - attaches to an armature that has two prongs that evidently need to be re-inserted into a receptical under the headliner to give the mirror stability - ***How do I find out how to place the armature into the recepticle. Please let me know how to remove the "base plate" from the mirror housing-there are no set screws I have asked about how to reinsert the armature that is intregal to the mirror into the headliner. There are two prongs that apparently should be "snapped" into a receptacle under the headliner. If anyone has information about the Olds Aurura mirror I would appreciate it

To remove

    The metal button or foot is removable with lots of mechanical advantage. Remove the mirror assembly from the electrical connection into the back of the mirror so that you can take the mirror to your shop. At the square end of the foot there appears to be a spring keeper with two little knobs that holds the foot in place. This spring is a TUFF little guy. My son-in-law managed to pry the spring down with a screw driver. We then placed the mirror, with the screwdriver still jammed in place, on the edge of the bench and tapped the foot out with small punch and a small hammer. We then removed the part of the mirror which holds the foot so that reattaching the mechanism to the foot after the gluing process of the foot to the windshield is easier. Come to think of it, maybe removing the portion of the mirror holding the foot first and then removing the foot might be easier. I still have to do the gluing and reassembly.

    The main message here is that that little spring looking keeper thing holds the foot in place and can be compressed so that the foot can be removed, but its TUFF.

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.
