Buick Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello. I assume what has happened is that the metal hanger has come off the glass?
Right, the metal bracket has come away from the glass.. You will need to remove the metal bracket from the mirror, and get rear view mirror adhesive and glue the bracket back on to the windshield. After you glue the bracket back to the windshield, then you can mount your mirror back onto the bracket. Here is the product we use all the time for this repair.
Now, to get the bracket out of the mirror, you will either have to loosen the allen set screw, or if you do not have an allen set screw then you have to use a small screw driver to release the bracket from the mirror and slide it out the bottom. I have also attached a picture of what the bracket looks like.
does your mirror have a set screw like this one?
unfortunately I don't have a camera or skype on this computer, but if you can take a picture and upload it here that would help..
If you want, I can call you.. Did you get a phone call offer from JustAnswer? You would have to accept that offer
OK. I knew that was the problem you were having. You have to get the metal bracket out of the mirror and re glue it to the windshield.
You can't glue the bracket to the windshield with the mirror still attached to it. Loosen the set screw and slide the bracket (part that glues to the windshield) out of the mirror
You can't glue the mirror to the windshield. You have to remove the metal bracket from the mirror and glue the metal bracket to the windshield. after you do that then you can re attach the mirror.
If you want to remove the mirror, just unplug the electrical connector on the mirror.
let me see if I can find you a video..
the only thing holding the mirror to the car right now is the wires. If you want to remove the mirror you will have to unplug those wires.
watch this video and let me know if it helps you at all.
Did this video answer your question? I hope?
I don't know what else to tell you. I will opt out and see if one of the other techs can think of a better way to explain it.
