SOURCE: rearview mirror fell off windshield

The mirror should slide over the metal piece from the top down and then there should be a set screw to tighten once you have it in place. Hold the mirror bracket above the metal, and slide it down over top. I hope you are successful.

At this point, I'd take it to a glass shop that does windshields and let them try the commercial adhesive.

Rearview mirror on 2004 Chevy trailblazer is loose wont stay in position, looks like a round clip has popped out to hold mirror in place


The round metal piece needs to be glued to the windshield. Specific glue is sold at any autoparts store. Once glued in place, the mirror slides onto it.

Rearview mirror fell off. how do i remove the metal plate from the mirror to reglue


It may be held on by small set screw. (Allen wrench type) Or it just pops on and off, with effort.
To pop it off, hold the mirror as it would normally sit, and with that position in mind, you want to slide the metal plate down and out of the mirror clip, and you may have to pry on it a bit to get it started.

After you have reattached the plate to the windshield, you will have to apply almost the same force to clip the mirror back on.

Tips: Mark the location of the metal plate with a piece of tape on the outside of the windshield.
Make sure you clean the old glue off both the plate and windshield. Do not scratch metal plate.
Make sure you glue the plate on correctly. Do a trial fit on the mirror just prior to glueing.

My son was trying to re-attach his rearview mirror to the windshield of his f150 pickup using Loctite rear view mirror adhesive. When re-installing the mounting piece, he mistakingly glued it on backwards....


My experience with that would be to use a hot air gun or a hair dryer (would take a little longer) to heat up the mounting piece, then carefully use a razor blade between windshield and glass to remove the adhesive. Be Extremely Careful. Razor Blade will get Hot and Brittle.

How does the rearview mirror fit back onto the windshield?


Just about every rearview mirror is now attached to the windshield with a special glue. Normally there is a metal piece that the mirror stem actually attaches too. To fix this yourself, you want to do is visit a local auto parts store and pickup a kit to reattach the metal piece to the windshield. Do not try super glue, it will not hold. Follow the directions on the kit for an easy repair.

The small metal piece is just glued to the glass , and is probably still in the mirror assembly. You can buy the "special " glue at any auto parts store.
Glue the metal piece on , then after it has fully dried you can slide the mirror back on.
