Rear view mirror removal

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know a way to remove the rear view mirror from the windshield?

Have tried to put a flat screw driver in the hole on the base of the mirror.

Pressing it in and pulling the base upwards, at the same time.

But it doesn't move.

 

I'm afraid to use force, don't want crack my windshield.

I fail to see the joke there Matt, I think you need a warning point for that! :p

Behind a cover. If not, it should just slide upwards.

Anybody got a definitive answer for removing the rear view mirror?

From the US sites it seems that a screwdriver needs to be pushed up in a slot at the base of the mirror mount, followed by pushing the mirror up.

My car is a base model, and does not appear to have a screw as shown in the pdf instructions above.

 

It hasn't budged with the Initial attempts I have made prodding with a screwdriver. :(

The solution is to use a 4mm screwdriver to push back a clip inside the mirror stem, through the hole at the bottom of the stem, allowing the mirror to be slid upwards off the mount bonded to the windscreen.

In practise this did not quite work, but after using the screwdriver, a gentle tap with a hide mallet upwards got mine off :)

This worked for me but needed a smaller screw driver. Replacement has a screw hole but seems to be secure enough.
