    Get a kit from any auto parts store. You have to depress the spring and push the button out with a screwdriver.

How to replace rear view mirror on 98 buick century


Most cars have the rear-view mirror and the little metal mount that it slides into. If the whole thing has fell off it is an easy fix.
Go to an auto parts place and tell the counter person you need the glue to glue your mirror mount to the windshield. They will know what to give you.
Then you clean the spot the mirror was hung with alcohol. Let dry
Then follow package directions. Basically you do a dab of glue on mount and press to windshield and hold for a bit of time. Then you wait like 12-24 hrs before sliding the mirror onto the mount.

On the other hand if you are asking for a new mirror you can get one from the Buick dealership - parts dept. or a junkyard or just attach any kind of rear-view mirror. Sorry I can't help you if you have a wired mirror.

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.

Rear view minor off! 1996 park ave. need to reattach.


remove the door panel or the trim piece to gain access to the nuts that hold the studs for the mirror.
remove the studs and resecure them to the mirror with epoxy putty.
Its very cool stuff, you just knead it for a minute or two, and pack it down around the studs as much as you can without it interfearing with the mounting of the mirror.
It can be found in the plumbing section or glue section of your hardware store. (it is somtimes cheaper in the plumbing section, and its the same stuff)
after that has cured for a couple hours then reattace the mirror with the nuts.

How to remount inside rearview mirror of 1997 Buick Park Avenue? I need to know how to remove the mounting plate from the mirror. Thank you.


Most mirror's have a small set screw holding them on the mounting plate, usually an allen head. You will need to get a mirror installation kit (glue) from a parts store. Most "chain" stores should carry them. What ever you do, DO NOT USE SUPER GLUE. The package should have clear instructions, just follow them and you should be fine.

Good Luck

there should be a small screw that is preventing the metal anchor from sliding free of the assrmbly. It will most likely be a phillips or allen wrench or t drive.

1996 Buick Regal internal rear view mirror fell off.


You will have to pry up on the small cover that keeps the mirror on the piece that actually touches he windshield. The trick for me is now how to get the piece back on! Small sledge hammer and a block of wood might just do the trick! :-) Be gentle!
