Normally there is a very small allen head or torx head bolt that has to be loosened to remove the metal holder from the mirror.

What type of glue can I use to re-glue the rear side wi(n)dow to the latch?


You can try a 'superglue' used for sticking interior mirrors back in place. images below are generic. Most car accessory shops will sell suitable glues:

Granville Windscreen Rear View Mirror Aerial Bond Glass Metal Adhesive Glue

Or you can try a two-part epoxy type glue:

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.

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.

Rear view mirror fell off the glass, how do I take the plate off the mirror so I can glue it to the windsheld


Loosen the the tiny allen set screw if it has one, OR it just pops/slides out, and it is hard to get it to do that. Hold the mirror like it was on the glass, the metal piece comes out the bottom or towards the dash. Also, when glued you will have to slide the mirror back onto the metal piece starting at the top and push it down until it locks....you'll know!! You might think your going to pop the metal off the glass but keep firm steady pressure and it'll go.

To repair a displaced rear view mirror. Does the flat base needs a glue? Does the mirror detaches from the metal base? If so, how do I detach it. Please help


mirror is screwed to metal plate w/screw or allen wrench. Glue go to metal plate then to windshield. Let it sit overnight or longer, then attach mirror. NOTE::: MAKE SURE THE METAL PAD IS GLUED IN CORRECT DIRECTION - UPSIDE DOWN DOES NOT WORK - (trust me I know - I did it)

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.

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.
