Separate the metal disk from the rest of the mirror (as the mirror is too heavy for the glue) grab the metal disk with a square nosed pliers and twist counterclockiwse....the metal disk is attached by springs (very strong springs) once the metal disk is cleaned it can be re-attached to the windshield with normal glue...make sure the metal disk is oriented correctly as the mirror is re-attached by a twisting motion.

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.

Does anyone know how to reattach the inside rear view mirror to the mount on an '04 Honda CRV? My son pulled the mirror off the mounting, which is still attached to the windshield. It looks like it...


another way it might attach is with a small metal or plastic wedge and glue maybe fashion the wedge from milk jug cap and a dab of 5 min epoxy firmly hold the mirror in place until it stays

Seperate rearview mirror from plate both came off

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.

Rearview mirror fell off windshield! Not broken...


the mirror should simply slide over the metal mount (button) that is glued to the window.

loosen the set screw on the mirror mount...

hold the rear view mirror mount on the glass just above the metal mount (wide end of plastic opening facing down)

slide it into place...
secure it by tightening down set screw you loosened earlier.
