Question about Ford Expedition
Some mounts have a Hex pin that needs to be turned out of the fixture with a hex wrench. Then whether it has the hex pin or not, there is a notch under the mirror base that is sping loaded. A small screwdriver is inserted into the opening on the end of the mount and you depress the spring while sliding the 2 pieces apart.
You want to look through the windshield from the outside to the former mounting place. On the outside of the former mounting place you want to put a piece of tape or crayola to mark the new attaching place Then clean the inside windshield and use the crayola or tape (put outside earlier) to line up the mount before you put the glue on the glass.
Make note of the bottom and top of the mount relative to the mirror so you are not 180 degrees off. There are different manufacturers of the glue. The best type I found uses 2 chemicals. You put 1 on the glass and it etches, then use the 2nd which is a catalyst for bonding. Attach the base and let it dry, then slide on the mirror with its clip. If there is a hex pin, tighten it.
