How do you get the plastic housing open on the inside of the windshield? I see how the screw on the mirror fits in the bracket but can you "open" the plastic around it?

If your talking bout the rear view mirror its a flat piece of metal glued to your windshield and the screw tightens the mirror bracket to the small piece of metal once you loosen or remove the screw you should be able to slide the mirror bracket off i believe it slides downward hope this helps

HOW DO I CHANGE INSIDE REAR VIEW MIRROR PLEASE


If it is mounted on the windshield, the mirror is attached to a bracket that is glued top the glass. You will see a small set screw at the base of the bracket. Most likely an Allen screw. Loosen the screw and slide the mirror up off the bracket.

Many of those mirrors have little Allen screws inside them to retain their position so check for a screw. Also make sure you didn't install the bracket upside down. Good luck.

How to glue 97 monte rear view mirrow back on windshield, no screw to get the little metal hanger off rest of mirror,


The only thing holding the bracket on is a screw. If the mirror were on the windshield, look up from under it, there will be a hole. Inside is a set screw, it requires a small allen wrench. Instructions come with the glue for attatching it. You can purchase the glue kit at any auto parts store. Before you clean the area, take a felt marker and mark a larger than the bracket " + " where the old one was on the outside of the windshield so you can center the bracket.

Re-assembly of 99 Blazer mirror to windshield


This is a relatively easy task, the bulk of the work has been for you. The rear view mirror assembly simply slides onto that metal block that was glued to your windshield. Your mirror mount (the part that slides onto the metal bracket) may be cut differently or shaped different from the rest of that part. you simply need to line that up with the metal mount on your windshield. slide the mirror on and tighten down the set screw if you have one. I've listed the steps below

1. find the base mount for your mirror (this is the bottom of the mirror that sits on the windshield)

2. look for a cut out or flat part of the mirror base.

3. line the flat part of the mirror base with the metal mount bracket on the windshield.

4. slide the mirror onto the metal bracket (this may require you to wiggle while you slide the mirror onto the metal bracket).

5. tighten the set screw on the mirror base ( this is important because your mirror will vibrate off the bracket if you don't.

Note some mirrors slide from the bottom of metal mount bracket and some slide from the top. it sort of depends on the manufacturer and/or the way the bracket was installed.

Hope this helps

Toyota Avalon Rear View Mirror


Hi-,
I had the same problem - the inside rear view mirror fell off during a hot summer day. I bought the mirror glue (adhesive) and wondered how to I separate the metal button from the mirror. Enventally, I tried the following and successully separated the metal button from the mirror: There is a little squre slot on the plastic sheath of the metal button. Please find a small flat-ned screw driver whose tip can fit into the sqare hole. put the screw driver into the hole and put it all the way inside down - which will open a little bended metal piece that stops the buttom; at the mean time, slide the metal button towards outside. As the bended metal piece opened uder the pressure of the screw driver, the metal button is freely moveable and can be slide out.
I did this successfully for my Toyota Avalon 1998 car.

Hope it helps.

How do i remove and replace the driver's side mirror?


If the metal pivot arm is not broken you can just replace the glass and plastic housing. To remove the glass you tilt the glass down towards the floor and use a wide plastic or wood bladed object to prise from behind, the glass should pop off from its clips. Remember to catch it if its not damaged. To remove the housing once the glass is out you need to look underneath the mirror unit, there you will find a small plastic bung, gently prise it out and then use a long small flat bladed screwdriver straight up inside the hole and lever towards the front of the car whilst lifting straight up on the plastic housing, this should then lift off. To replace just slot the new housing on and click into place then fit the glass back, remember to connect the wires first if it is a heated glass.
If the metal pivot arm is broken then you will find the remaining screws behind the plastic trim inside the vehicle.

How do I re-install the rear view mirror?


If it goes directly attached to the windshield, you will have to remove a metal piece of metal from the mirror base. This will have to be glued with epoxy glue to the windshield holding it it with tape overnight. After this you can put the mirror back.

Custom Rear view mirror


Hiya...ALL factory-installed rearview mirrors are installed with different wires due to options.
About 6 different rearview mirrors are installed with those options such as On-Star, light, compass, and those features which use different wires....THIS CANNOT be modified with different rearview mirror....**for example, the Equinox owner attempt to pull out a factory-installed base rearview mirror and put in different one that has compass/temperature built into the rearview mirror**

However, the wires are located inside the front headliner which requires removing the sunvisor (and possible removal of interior plastic trim part at the left/right ends of the windshield) prior to pull the headliner down, and a small metal philips or torx screw is used to secure the rearview mirror onto the bracket glued to the windshield.

The best solution is to leave the original factory-installed rearview mirror in place.
