SOURCE: Toyota Avalon Rear View Mirror

The "button" or metal disc you speak of comes off the mirror assembly by loosening the small torx/allen screw hidden under the sheath that covers the mirror "stalk"...follow the rearview mirror directions, to the letter. If you cannot get the button out...carefully clean the face of that button off using a safety razor, being careful not to nick or abrade the button...make sure the same spot on the windshield by marking it with a felt tip marker on the outside of the windshield BEFORE you clean the residue off the glass!
Good Luck

I want to replace the back struts on 2001 Avalon.


Lift up on the front edge of the bottom cushion, to defeat the clips that holds it down. Then lift out the entire bottom cushion. Next, remove the bolts that holds the bottoms of the back seats to the rear metal. Then lift the seat backs up and out. FInally, pull and remove the rear interior trims.
