My driver side door didn't like the cold weather this season so I started using the other doors, and acrobatics, to place myself in the drivers seat. Through this process I kept hitting my head on my rear view mirror until eventually it came off:
This is attached to the windshield:
Rear view mirror connector:
How do I go about re-attaching this?
The screw on the mirror doesn't fit into the metal ring. The metal ring can't be bent to allow this to happen either.
I don't see how to open the connector on the windshield. From what I could find online, it seems like you jam something into this and pry it open? What tool? Where exactly? Most, if not all, of the advice I can find online is about the proper way to glue this.
I think using a mallet might work. But I would rather not break anything or miss and break my windshield
Is my only option to try to scrape this thing off my windshield and buy a new one?
