I cant remove the rearview mirror button to fix it. There is some sort of a clip holding that piece in the rear view mirror and in order to re attach the mirror to the windshield you have to get that piece...


Hi Teresa,

Yes, you are correct. The mirror bracket (the small piece - see picture below) has to come out of the mirror stem in order to get the thing glued back on to the windshield.

MOST GM vehicles have either a Hex or Torx head screw that holds onto the bracket. (see picture below)

If your mirror does not have this screw, then it is held by a spring clip (which is what I think you are describing). If this is the case, look at the bottom edge of the mirror stem/bracket assembly. There will be a small hole (slot) between the mirror stem and the mirror bracket. Take a paper clip and shove it as far as possible up in the hole. This will push and hold the spring clip back so you can slide the bracket out of the mirror stem. Please note that you are only trying to get the paper clip BETWEEN the spring clip and the bracket - the spring clip does not come out of the mirror stem assembly without breaking things. (Sorry, I do not have a picture of this type of fixture)

When you go to glue the bracket onto the windshield, make sure that all of the old glue is cleaned off first. A razor blade works well for this task. Then follow the directions in your mirror glue kit for applying the primer and glue.

Make sure the bracket is oriented correctly when you stick it to the windshield. Some mirror glues are very unforgiving and will stick almost instantly, making corrections nearly impossible.

One more hint: If the old glue (or the outline of the old glue) is still on the windshield, use a "sharpie" pen to trace around it on the OUTSIDE of the windshield. This will serve as a "locator" once you have cleaned and primed the windshield in preparation for the bracket to get glued. The pen mark can be cleaned off with regular windshield washer fluid when you are finished.

With the heat my rear view mirror came off of my window. I just want to glue the silver piece back on how do I remove it


there may be a small screw or if not, its a metal clip, you may need to pry the clip up and slide the metal piece out. the auto parts store sells special glue just for the mirror.

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.

How do you get the back off of a rearview mirror to stick it back n the window


Some have a cover hiding the screw or from the bottom theres a clip that need to be pryed back and held while you slide mirror of bracket, if theres no screw on the mirror to loosen then theres a clip arm holding it, also make sure to glue the right way take note of how it goes on because once you glue to glass its not coming off.

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.

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.

Do you have to remove the small metal plate off of the rearview mirror to place back on the windshield after it has fallen off?


no but it is much easier,because you will not have the weight of the mirror to hold while the glue sets
