Question about 1998 Jaguar Xj Series
The mirror does not have a set screw and requires pulling, pushing, and prying to get it off. The trick is how to do it without breaking the windshield. Help!
These mirrors are all made by one company, no matter the car maker, they all have the same problems, they are very unreliable, if u have power to the mirror which I am 100% sure u do the mirror will need to be replaced, they are not repairable they are about $250-300

Mine fell off as well. There's a spring clip holding the mirror to the base plate...you need to get a $3 glue kit from Parts America or other parts shop, re glue the base plate, then mount the mirror / reattach the clip.

I had this exact same problem and the cable was broken. There is a way to get it open by going through the wheel well. Let me know if this is still an issue for you and I can walk you through it. Thanks!

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!
