Rear View Mirror Came Off!

Post by smithr11 » Thu Apr 02, 2020 1:49 pm

Just joined here and sorry if this topic has been raised before.

My rear view mirror just fell off as I was adjusting it!

Many attempts have been made to put it back on but I'm pretty sure my windscreen is going to break!

I can see 4 metal clips which I think are used to secure mirror in place but, so far, a lot of force seems to be needed to clip it back on.

Any help is much appreciated.

Concerning the rear view mirror and the various sensors incorporated into its housing ( see my attached pic )

No 1 is the Rain sensor ?
No 2 ????????
No 3 is Auto dimming ?

I can't figure out what No 2 is, presuming that I've correctly identified Nos 1&3
Thank you

@stepdey you are correct with number 1 + 3. I am sure that number 2 is not a sensor. When my mirror fell off I had to take it apart to re-fit it to the windscreen. One of the plastic covers just clips into the part where you have the number 2. If I find the time I will remove the mirror (now that I know how to :lol:) and take it apart and post some pics for you.

Thanks to you both for your replies, appreciated.

Fred99, Thats what I wondered, although its not part of my vehicles specs. Although I have used OBDEleven to activate some "hidden" additional features, I had thought of using it attempt to activate the road sign/lane keeping feature to see if it was "hidden", but that would take 100 credits to do but again another 100 to reverse if it wasn't.

smith11, When the sun is shining directly on it, it looks as though there may be a camera lens further back inside, but I don't know, can't obviously ask the dealer, because they are closed, I suppose I could unclip the mirror support surround to see if there are any wires that lead to that area ?

There have been a lot of reports recently of mirrors coming off in brand new cars on their own, sometimes while cars are parked. Looks like a bad batch of adhesive or something. Should be covered under warranty.
