SOURCE: Rearview Mirror Adhesive

The product does work fine, you can try it again. Make absolutely sure that all of the old adhesive has been removed, I use a new, sharp razor to remove the old stuff on both surfaces. Be sure NOT to touch either of the clean areas with your fingers. If you do, take acetone and wipe that part clean. follow the directions and good luck.

The airbag light stays on and the temperature and compass display on the rearview mirror won't work.

2003 Chevy Silverado
our rearview mirror has gone off and the airbag light stays on.
i've determined that this is a fuse, the SIR fuse under the hood, but what I can't figure out is why it's blowing.
It's either something to do with when we hook up the lights to the trailer or it might be from where we installed a new car stereo.
I took it to the Chevy dealer for some other things and told them there was a fuse blown to the rearview mirror and to the airbag and just asked them to replace the fuse while it was in the shop.
on top of the $700 i was already spending, they charged me $98 to diagnose that it was a blown fuse and like $11 to change it, even though I already told them it was the airbag fuse. Highway robbery. And they wonder why we don't like 'em.

Cracked mirror only, mounting and other parts are functioning well. Can I purchase a mirror only and if so, where?? This is for 2006 Pontiac Grand Prix and the passenger side mirror is cracked but works...

Hello, yes the glass can be replaced. you will need to see your local GM dealer for the glass. real simple to replace.

  • Carefully push the outside rearview mirror face on the inner edge, near the front door window glass, to allow access.
  • Insert a large flat-bladed screwdriver in the slot between mirror lens and the mounting base.
  • Grasp the mirror face firmly and pull it from the mirror body.
  • Remove the outside rearview mirror case from the outside rearview mirror housing and disconnect the heater wire, if equipped.

  • Using the palm of your gloved hand, press firmly on the center of the glass until the case seats onto the motor.
  • The mirror will make a snapping noise when properly seated.
  • Inspect the mirror for proper operation.

    1996 is all I have. Look on back of cover for fuse chart.

    The fuse junction panel is located to the left of the steering column. To expose the fuse junction panel, remove the fuse panel cover (14A003) as outlined.

    Custom Rear view mirror

    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.
