Should be a small allen head set screw holding the button to the mirror assembly. Loosen and remove, re-assemble after the glue dries.

SOURCE: How do you remove the rear view mirror from mount.

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. "

You will have to pry up on the small cover that keeps the mirror on the piece that actually touches he windshield. The trick for me is now how to get the piece back on! Small sledge hammer and a block of wood might just do the trick! :-) Be gentle!

SOURCE: The internal rear view mirror

I know this post is almost a year old, but I just did this two minutes ago with a mirror from a 99 Avalon and I thought I could help out someone in the future. So...

First, you will need two slotted screwdrivers--one mini and one regular size. On the flat end of the button there is a small slot just left of center. Insert the mini screwdriver into the slot with the flat edge against the bottom of the button. Aim it towards the middle and push back--this releases the clip. Now, while holding the mini screwdriver in place, take the regular screw driver and push/pry from the curved end of the button. The button should slide right out. No problem!

Rear view mirror map lights are out 2000 buick century


Mine does that occasionally intermittently but if you look around in the back of the mirror you'll see some wires, those are most likely broken.
I had the mirror completely fall off the windshield and had a windshield installation company reattach it because I knew it took a specialty glass glue, well they broke one of the wires but not completely so it shorts out but a wiggle makes the lights come back on and I'm just to busy to take the mirror off the mount and fix it right. You can remove the mirror from the piece that attaches it to the windshield.
Check those wires, good luck

How to replace rear view mirror on 98 buick century


Most cars have the rear-view mirror and the little metal mount that it slides into. If the whole thing has fell off it is an easy fix.
Go to an auto parts place and tell the counter person you need the glue to glue your mirror mount to the windshield. They will know what to give you.
Then you clean the spot the mirror was hung with alcohol. Let dry
Then follow package directions. Basically you do a dab of glue on mount and press to windshield and hold for a bit of time. Then you wait like 12-24 hrs before sliding the mirror onto the mount.

On the other hand if you are asking for a new mirror you can get one from the Buick dealership - parts dept. or a junkyard or just attach any kind of rear-view mirror. Sorry I can't help you if you have a wired mirror.

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.

How to replace a fallen off rear view mirror on a 95 buick regal


Hi,
I assume it is the type that is glued to the windshield (most GM are like that). You can buy a glue kit from the parts store for this. Fairly simple, the piece that glues to the windshield comes off the mirror unit, usually with a set screw. You use a razor blade to scrape off all traces of old glue from the windshield and the mounting piece (use a marker to out line where it should be re-attached, and I use fingernail polish remover to get rid of residue, then some windex)) then spread a thin layer of glue on the mounting piece and press to winshield for a minute or so, allow to dry. (instructions in kit will tell you exactly how long for the particular glue used.) Slide mirror unit into bracket and re-tighten set screw. Done!
Please rate this answer! Thanks, Mike

How do i get the rear view mirror back on?


I am assuming you are talking about the interior rear view mirror and not the side rear view mirror. Most auto parts stores sell an adhesive glue to fix the interior rear view mirror. Most of these mirrors have two parts to them. One part is the bracket that glues to the windshield and the other part is the rear view mirror assembly. Before gluing the bracket to the glass check and see how the mirror assembly attaches to the bracket. There will often be a screw that fixed the two together.
