I have a 93 Topaz and the rear view mirror on the windshield fell off.
How do I get the button out of the mirror to glue back on the windshield?
I've done this before on different cars and they had a screw (allen or torx)
and it was a piece of cake. But this one only has a little slot at the base
and I can't see far in enough to figure out what to do.
Anybody give me any insight?
presses off...not a gentle press...more like press the Hulk would do when
he's mad....you want to press on the piece that attaches to the windshield
not the mirror part.....it slips on and off very tight....
i had the same problem years ago.. you need some small jewelers
screwdriver... from the dollar store.... press one into the small cut
out slot on the bottom of the thing and then it will release a spring
loaded piece of metal that is holding it on.. you then use a larger
screwdriver on the opposite side to pry the metal part that is glued on
to the glass out of the mirror part....once you do it it will become a
piece of cake.. if you still cant then bring it to a glass place and ask
them to do it for you(take it aparts) or you can always hold the mirror
onto the glass when you glue it back on.. it should hold in about 3
minutes.. i had to do this once before i learned how to remove the metal
Ended up doing the small & big screwdriver deal. Even with the screwdrivers
it was still a PITA but it eventually came out. Hey, another lesson learned
;). Thx for the replies you two, helped me out quite a bit.
