Are you not the original owner? That sounds suspiciously like this car has been in water or it was stored in a very humid environment for an extended period.

You should pull up the carpet and inspect the floorboards for rust. If all is well with water exposure then you can either close the windows and run the A/C on maximum for a while or leave all the doors open until the fogginess dissipates.
The cause of the dim displays and fogged mirror has the same effect on the laser lens of the CD player. It may be more common on interiors that were cleaned recently from any of the cleaning agent or protectant remaining behind on the surfaces that might cloud when on cold acrylic plastics, more so when given the right environment.

You could also try using a hair dryer on these surfaces on a low setting.

I have a 2002 Pontiac Grand Prix GTP. I'm just trying to put the rear view mirror back on. I cannot get the small metal piece off of the entire mirror body to glue to the windshield.


It can be removed using a hammer and a drift. It is essentially a jamb fit with a stop. hard to imagine that you would not pull new piece off when you rehang the mirror on the small metal mount piece.

Be certain to follow directions preciecely! use mirror mount kit, forget all other glues, etc.

Sideview mirrors dont move certain ways.


I researched the maintenance manual. The fuse you need to replace is fuse 20 in the under dash fuse box. It controls side windows, washer motor, rear view dim function, and possible seat memory. There are a couple that link to the mirrors, but this is the one for this problem.

2000 Pontiac Grand Prix Passenger Side rear view mirror


As the owner of a 2001 Grand Prix GTP I can tell you that the mirror you speak of is not terribly difficult to replace, but you need the tools to remove the inside panels in the front corner of the window to get to it. Once you get that off there should be three bolts/nuts that hold the mirror on and if you have power mirrors then of course you'll have an electrical connector in there as well.

I dont have any instructions wrote up but there is a Grand Prix car club forum you can check that may have some information on how to replace it in more detail. You can go to grandprixforums.net, sign up and post up your problem and Im sure someone there will probably have specific instructions.
