Take a hair dryer to the outside of the windshield just at the area where the mirror is attached (do not do this when it very cold out) the glue will loosen enough for you to remove the mirror, clean off excess glue with razor blade. Purchase proper glue to attach new mirror from your local Automotive Parts Store.

There should be a screw that will attach mirror to the holding plate. The holding plate is attached with a special mirror adhesive. You can place new mirror over the origional holder. There isn't really any way to remove the original holder without cracking the windshield

A lose rear veiw mirror 99 s10

If its the windshield mirror, gm usually uses a phillips or torx head screw to tighten the mirror to the base, which is glued to the glass with a special adhesive. If the screw is tight and it's the mirror joints that are loose, replace the mirror. If it's the door mirror, the inner trim on the door needs to be removed to tighten the mounting bolts. If the outside foldaway joint is loose, you will probably need to replace the complete mirror.

Is my 98 ford taurus rear wheel?

If you want to know if it is rear wheel drive, then I would say no. It is front wheel drive. One can tell by looking at the halfshafts that lead to the wheels in the front vs. the back wheel area.
