Thread: reattach inside rear view mirror

  1. #1

    Default reattach inside rear view mirror

    While cleaning the inside of the windshield, I accidently knocked the rear view mirror off its' peg. How does one get it back on? There is a five sided peg glued to the windshield. On the arm there are three very stout springs. It has defied all attempts to pop it back on. Is there a trick this? Car is a 90 525i. Thanks

    Its been a while, but I seem to recall having to turn the mirror arm relative to the 'peg' and push. Its a bit awkward. I remember scratching my coconut over this one myself.

    Good luck,

    hold the stick verticaly, possitioned on the thing on the windshield (in it's normal position). while holding it pressed turn it a bit to the right untill it feels like it slides into something. then press harder and turn to it's normal vertical possition. it just pops in.
