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.

What glue do I need to use to adhere rear window to convertible top? It is pulling away and I cannot afford a new top just because the glass is pulling away.


You need to cut a small piece of the plastic liner at the bottom. cut about 1/4 inch of just the plastic. not the liner. If you score the plastic half way through then you can snap it off. I put a little glue on the fabric so it does not unravel. THen you need to use a plastic hammer and a piece of wood or plastic and snap the liner back in. It fits in a channel and needs to be snapped in and work your way around until it is all snapped in.

Need to reglue rearview mirrow to front window. Got glue made for that purpose. Need to try and remove "silver button" from the back of the mirror so I can glue the button to the window then attach the...


The "silver button " is held in place with an anchor screw which you will need to look for and chose the right screwdriver to loosen it,then it should just slide out with your thumb.Gluing the mirror on is a one chance try so make sure it is in the right place the first time and hold the silver thing there with tape over night.The next day you can just slide the mirror on and tighten the set screw,then you are good to go!

Convertible rear window separated from fabric top


This problem is very common and is known as delamination.
Use Urethane adhesive to reglue the window.
This same adhesive is used to install windshields.
The hard part will be to hold the window in place till the Urethane cures.
Prepare for that in advance.

Convertible top


I have the same problem. I got acetone and removed the old glue from the glass. Then  I reglued it with gorilla glue. This stuff explands into this yellow hard foam, so you have to be careful not to put on too much and not to get it on the outside of the top. I stuffed the back window area inside the car with pillows to push the glass up, then carefully applied the glue to the edge of the glass with a paintbrush. Then I covered the glued area on the outside with plastic bags of kitty litter to hold the fabric against the glass. Takes 4-5 hours to dry. Worked beautifully so far. Got a little thick and a couple places and I removed the excess with a razor blade. Then on the inside, I applied a small amount of the same glue with a paintbrush to the inside of the little track round the window. Then inserted the edge of the headliner into the track. Did all of this work with the top slightly opened to take the pressure off. So far so good. One week and counting. Hopefully it will hold up to the heat and sun.
