    I've already tried to slide it out,but the metal piece is surrounded by black plastic pieces that cup around it, It also is attached to the headliner above with wires which also makes it hard to figure out how to dismantle it. But thanks anyway.

Interior rear view mirror fell off my 98 BMW 540i


There is a small set screw that holds the mirror to the small metal button. Most vehicles use a small Phillips screw but some use a Hex Key Wrench (Allen Wrench) type screw. Slide the mirror off the button. Make sure not to remove the glue before you put the button back on. Trace around the glue with a grease pencil on the outside of the windshield before you remove it. So you know exactly where to replace the button. You can buy a Rear View Mirror Adhesive Kit for around five dollars.

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.

I too am having a problem removing the small metal piece from the back of my 2002 pontiac grand prix rear view mirror. It fell off the windshield due to the heat, I'm supposing. It has the Onstar...


It should be the same as the ones from the late 90's. You have 3 pieces there. The metal piece comes out the bottom of the mirror and should have a piece of plastic attached to it. It is a friction fit with the actual mirror so it shouldn't require a lot of hammering or even hard hammering.
Once the mirror is off there should be a small slot in the remaining plastic and metal. Use a small screwdriver or something similar to push in on a clip that is inside and the plastic and metal should separate. Hope this helps.

Many of those mirrors have little Allen screws inside them to retain their position so check for a screw. Also make sure you didn't install the bracket upside down. Good luck.

Reglue the rear view mirror. How do I remove the metal disc to glue on the window? Every other one I've done their was a set screw. When you remove the screw the small metal seat slides out. This one is...


They changed it. You have to slide the mounting bracket out the bottom of the mirror case.It's a tight fit but the mirror assembly will slide off, toward the roof. Once you have it off you will see a small slot on the bottom of the mounting bracket. Slide a small screwdriver in the slot and push toward the mounting plate (windshield). The plate that goes on the windshield should pop off. Hope this helps.

Inside rearview mirror came off due to excessive heat. I can not get the metal plate (mount) off the stem to reglue to windshied. Should be a set screw or something hidden?


There could be. If there is a small opening, push a small, flat screwdriver about an inch into it while gently pull on the mirror. It should come off. But a rearview mirror repair kit and follow the instructions for installation. Good luck!
