Question about 2008 Mitsubishi Lancer GTS CVT Sedan
How do I remove from windscreen
Most vehicles have a small piece of plastic that is glue onto the windshield and then the mirror slides onto that piece. If that is not the case then get ahold of some adhesive remover and try that. It is deffinately not on there with screws.

On the inside trim, you can remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. Then you'll need to manipulate the panel and disconnect the door handle linkage from the door handle and disconnect the wiring for your controls. Then you can access the bolts that secure the mirror onto the door

not 100% sure, but seem to remember that theres an alen key fastener, which is under a cap/flap at the bottom of the mirror fastening close to the glass.
Hope that helps

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!

Well known issue on VW cars.Try to use 2 component glue to fix it like Diamant or Epokit.You may need to create a holder while glue goes off.

Is the mount made of metal or plastic? In either case, it will be attached to a "base" that is glued to the windshield. A metal mount should have a tiny little screw in it that pins it against the base. Loosen this crew and the mount should slide upwards (towards roof) off the base. A plastic mount should have a tab that you can pull on and slide it off upwards....

Testimonial: "Exactly what we thought was the correct way. But they found that the previous owner had also glued the mirror stem to the mount. "
Just finished this job 5 mins ago. To disconnect the lights, use a small screwdriver to lift the locking tab on the plug. It's on the top of the plug. You should now be able to pull the plug from the socket. First check for locking screws on the housing. If there are none, take a scrap piece of 2x4 and place on edge. Place the pivot arm of the mirror on top edge of 2x4 with flat side of mounting plate facing down. Gently tap the plate out of the housing using a screwdriver and small hammer.
