Interior mirror - removal and refitting
1 The interior mirror is bonded to the windscreen glass. If it must be removed, grip the mirror firmly and push it forward to break the adhesive bond.
2 When refitting the mirror, the following preliminary work must first be carried out.
3 Remove existing adhesive from the windscreen glass using a suitable solvent.
Allow the solvent to evaporate. The location of the mirror base is marked on the glass with a black patch, so that there should not be any chance of an error when fitting.
4 If the original mirror is being refitted, clean all the old adhesive from the mirror mounting base, and apply a new adhesive patch to it.
5 If a new windscreen is being installed, peel off the protective layer from the black patch, which is pre-coated with adhesive.
6 Peel off the protective layer from the mirror adhesive patch and locate the mirror precisely onto the black patch on the screen. Hold it in position for at least two minutes.
7 For best results, the fitting of a bonded type mirror should be carried out in an ambient temperature of 70°C (158°F). The careful use of a blower heater on both the glass and mirror should achieve this temperature level.
