Question about 2002 Acura 3.2TL
The inside rear view mirror head broke away from mount. I have a new mirror assembly but can't figure out how to remove the old one and install the new one. I don't want to break anything. It is the electronic self dimming kind

This is a relatively easy task, the bulk of the work has been for you. The rear view mirror assembly simply slides onto that metal block that was glued to your windshield. Your mirror mount (the part that slides onto the metal bracket) may be cut differently or shaped different from the rest of that part. you simply need to line that up with the metal mount on your windshield. slide the mirror on and tighten down the set screw if you have one. I've listed the steps below
1. find the base mount for your mirror (this is the bottom of the mirror that sits on the windshield)
2. look for a cut out or flat part of the mirror base.
3. line the flat part of the mirror base with the metal mount bracket on the windshield.
4. slide the mirror onto the metal bracket (this may require you to wiggle while you slide the mirror onto the metal bracket).
5. tighten the set screw on the mirror base ( this is important because your mirror will vibrate off the bracket if you don't.
Note some mirrors slide from the bottom of metal mount bracket and some slide from the top. it sort of depends on the manufacturer and/or the way the bracket was installed.
Hope this helps

should be a set screw on the stem that slides on to the window mount,remove it abd carfully lift it off the mount.If the mount does come off with it then you need to go to and auto parts suppier and buy the proper adhesive to glue it back on.
