Getting the button as hot as possible then twisting it around in a circle is about the only method that works on metal buttons. be gentle, it's very easy to break your windshield.

Take it to either a body shop or a windshield repair place and they will probably do it for you while you wait & inexpensively, using the proper adhesive.

Rear view mirror fell off the windshield of my 2001 Buick Century,how do I reglue it?


This happened to me once on one of my cars. I took it to a business that replaces windshields and they glued it back on for free. I expected to pay something to have this done but did not have to.

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.

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.

Toyota Avalon Rear View Mirror


Hi-,
I had the same problem - the inside rear view mirror fell off during a hot summer day. I bought the mirror glue (adhesive) and wondered how to I separate the metal button from the mirror. Enventally, I tried the following and successully separated the metal button from the mirror: There is a little squre slot on the plastic sheath of the metal button. Please find a small flat-ned screw driver whose tip can fit into the sqare hole. put the screw driver into the hole and put it all the way inside down - which will open a little bended metal piece that stops the buttom; at the mean time, slide the metal button towards outside. As the bended metal piece opened uder the pressure of the screw driver, the metal button is freely moveable and can be slide out.
I did this successfully for my Toyota Avalon 1998 car.

Hope it helps.

The internal rear view mirror on my 1999 Toyota Avalon just fell off and I'm trying to glue it back on. I got the Permatex methacrylate ester adhesive from Autozone to glue it back on but the instructions...


I know this post is almost a year old, but I just did this two minutes ago with a mirror from a 99 Avalon and I thought I could help out someone in the future. So...

First, you will need two slotted screwdrivers--one mini and one regular size. On the flat end of the button there is a small slot just left of center. Insert the mini screwdriver into the slot with the flat edge against the bottom of the button. Aim it towards the middle and push back--this releases the clip. Now, while holding the mini screwdriver in place, take the regular screw driver and push/pry from the curved end of the button. The button should slide right out. No problem!
