I believe the long black plasic thing covers the wire from the top of the mirror bracket to the headliner.

Re: toyota avalon inside rear view mirror came off of...
Sliding the rear view mirror onto the metal tab on the window. look at the part of the mirror that slides over the peice on the window. one end is open and has grooves on the side. you have to put the base of the mirror above the metal mount and flat against the window then slide it down over the mount. there may be a screw to hold it in place.

if your talking bout the rear view mirror its a flat piece of metal glued to your windshield and the screw tightens the mirror bracket to the small piece of metal once you loosen or remove the screw you should be able to slide the mirror bracket off i believe it slides downward hope this helps
The wires unplug from the back of the mirror. It is a very small plastic plug that clips into place and can be pulled off with wiring connections to plug intact; when done with repairs, plug it back on.
The little silver piece you are referring to is the mounting button which is normally affixed to the windshield by glue/adhesive substance. It is difficult to remove from the mirror bracket but is designed to be removed by depressing the black metal tang attached to the bracket at the front base of the button where it slides into the bracket. It took me 15 minutes to figure it out and 10 tries to get it depressed while also sliding the button out over the metal tang. Good luck! The button will then need to be cleaned and new glue/adhesive purchased from auto parts store for $5-$7. Glue it back, wait a while and remount mirror on it.
Side view mirrors are put on in many different ways...some are screwed on from the outside and others are bolted on from inside the door.And some are both screws outside and screws or bolts inside. Many side view mirrors today also have wiring that will need to be disconnected.If not wires then some have cables attached to the joystick used to adjust the mirror.These are the more complicated to change.The easiest way to tell if is going to be a simple task or not is to look at the inside of the door,in the corner where the mirror is attached. If there is a small access panel " normally a triangle shaped of plastic that is either screwed on or will simply pop off and snap back on. If you can get unside there to see the bolts or screws for the mirror or to see if there are wires or cables attached then your are off to a good start.If there are wires then you will need to remove the door panel. Which is a whole new task.If only the glass in your mirror is broken , most auto parts stores sell replacement mirrors that glue back on top of your broken glass or IF you want to attempt to remove the broken glass first it will work just as well. Most electric mirrors' glass is attached in such a manner you have to replace the entire mirror assembly.---------You don't always need to replace your entire door mirror assembly when you break the glass. No matter what type of Acura MDX you're in, we have plenty of mirrors for you to choose from. If you only need the mirror glass, then there's absolutely no reason to pay top dollar for an entire assembly.

This is a relatively easy task, the bulk of the work has been for you. The rear view mirror assembly simply slides onto that metal block that was glued to your windshield. Your mirror mount (the part that slides onto the metal bracket) may be cut differently or shaped different from the rest of that part. you simply need to line that up with the metal mount on your windshield. slide the mirror on and tighten down the set screw if you have one. I've listed the steps below
1. find the base mount for your mirror (this is the bottom of the mirror that sits on the windshield)
2. look for a cut out or flat part of the mirror base.
3. line the flat part of the mirror base with the metal mount bracket on the windshield.
4. slide the mirror onto the metal bracket (this may require you to wiggle while you slide the mirror onto the metal bracket).
5. tighten the set screw on the mirror base ( this is important because your mirror will vibrate off the bracket if you don't.
Note some mirrors slide from the bottom of metal mount bracket and some slide from the top. it sort of depends on the manufacturer and/or the way the bracket was installed.
The "post" mounted into the roof/headliner has a plastic "cap" cover over the screws, I believe. If not simply remove the screws and drop the visor down...it may have a wire that connects power for the vanity mirror...just find the tiny clips and disconnect. I'd look for the visor using a junkyard "landline" search-first. Trim pieces like visors can be difficult to locate depending where you live in the country. Dealer-sourced, expect to spend $$$ per visor Good Luck
I'm guessing that you mean the mounting plate that attaches to the windshield. The plastic cover over that piece of the mirror comes off. It slides off toward the ceiling end of the mirror. With that off, you will see a small slot on the bottom of the mirror and mounting bracket. Slide a small screwdriver, like a sewing machine screwdriver into that slot. There is a clip in there that needs to be pressed and the plate will come off. The clip should press toward the windshield.
This panel is held in by plastic snaps. After all the screws are ou it pops off not a sliding type. Hopefully your window rolls down it is easier. !st take the plastic cover off of latch mechanism in rear of penal On the seat switch you'll find the top wooden portion pulls off grab from the bottom. then there is a bracket that unscrews and the seat switch wood pops out. next open the armrest and you'll see a plastic cover held in by a small black screw. remove and then remove the big screw behind it, I believe there is also a screw in the front of the map pocket and possibly 2 more in the center. pop out the light at the bottom of the panel and un clip wire harness. Next pop pout the top side view mirror cover. I believe there may be a couple of plastic grommets on grab handle that pop out giving you access to the screws. Next pop off the door panel by grabbing at the bottom and pulling outwards. be carefully because there is a vacuum line attached to the map pocket lid locking mechanism. once panel is loose un clip vac line and electrical and grab handle linkage. you should then be able to remove panel completely. i do not have an sl in front of me so look very carefully for any screws I forgot to mention. This is the best I can do from memory. good luck
hi there the easiest way is to remove the lower black cover 2xscrews then with aplastic spreader locate the 2 tabs that hold black cover to mirror cover and press them in and pull black cover down then with a small pry tool carefully prise mirror glass out and disconect wires this will reveal the small single screw that holds the cover to the mirror unit remove this and the rest should be self explaned hope this helps..
Hiya...ALL factory-installed rearview mirrors are installed with different wires due to options.
About 6 different rearview mirrors are installed with those options such as On-Star, light, compass, and those features which use different wires....THIS CANNOT be modified with different rearview mirror....**for example, the Equinox owner attempt to pull out a factory-installed base rearview mirror and put in different one that has compass/temperature built into the rearview mirror**
However, the wires are located inside the front headliner which requires removing the sunvisor (and possible removal of interior plastic trim part at the left/right ends of the windshield) prior to pull the headliner down, and a small metal philips or torx screw is used to secure the rearview mirror onto the bracket glued to the windshield.
The best solution is to leave the original factory-installed rearview mirror in place.
