When putting the mirror and backing plate back onto the car you want to first set the positioners correctly. You want to make sure the positioners are attached to the motor first, do not try to have them attached to the backing plate and push them into the motor, they move around too much and you might damage one.

The positioners have rounded heads on them but they have little plastic ridges on two sides of the ball that have to be lined up with notches in the backing plate. The top one should have the ridges straight up and down and the left should be going left/right.

Put the backing plate against the center pivot and push it back onto the pivot ball until it snaps into place. You will need to put almost all the pressure on the center. If you push too much on either end you could flex the glass too much and crack it.

Once the center pivot is in place you work on snapping the positioners into their sockets. Push the mirror all the way to the left. It will push the positioner all the way down into the motor until it hits bottom then you can press on the area of glass directly over the positioner until it pops into it's socket. Then push the mirror back to center and then all the way up to pop the top positioner into place.

Do i have to remove the door panel on my 2006 pontiac vibe to change the rear view mirror


In most cases you do especially if it is a power mirror. If it is manual, you may only have to remove the plastic triangle panel to access the 3 bolts securing it

We have a 2004 Hyundai Sonata. The inside rear view mirror fell off and glued back a few year ago. It fell off again a few days ago and it dragged off a piece of windshield glass with it. Now there is a...


windshield's are made of laminated glass so they shatter into tiny pieces when in an accident so do not cut as bad , the rearview mirror has pulled the first layer of laminate away , the windshield will be weakened by this and could shatter at any time , particulary over rough/bumpy ground, it cannot be repaired so you will need to replace the shield , as for who designed the mirror he wasn't very clever !

Entire glass assembly 'fell out' of my passenger side mirror. Can I just replace the glass insert? Where can I go to get this done or can I do it myself?


call your local glasing shop... they have cut out patterns for just such issues...

Otherwise try calling the local salvage yard... and getting a used mirror?

The rar view mirror fell off. How do i put it back on


There are a few products sold at Autoparts stores. If you can find 3M brand or a brand with an activator, they seem to work best.

You need to do several things to prepare for the job. First, get some tape and outline the old mounting position from the outside of the windshield. Then clean the inside surface of the glass.

You want to separate the mounting clip from the mirror stem. Usually there is an Allen screw in the clip. Sometimes the clips have a spring underneath that needs to be pushed down to allow the mirror stem to slide off. Note the position of the clip, if the narrow end is up or down and then glue the clip to the glass in the same direction.

After the clip has had time to adhere, slide the mirror stem into the clip, tighten the Allen screw and you are done. You will have to HOLD the clip against the glass for at least 2 minutes when you are glueing it.

Or you can go to a Glass Installer and they can do it.

Replacing a rear view mirror


You have to CAREFULLY ( probably wise to wear safety goggles ) and with a flat blade screwdriver, pry out ALL the broken mirror glass wearing gloves. Now with the 2 adhesive strips, align mirror glass and adhere to base. Hope this helps
