Question: how to remove and replace the interior rear view mirror im getting an eyebrow done on my windshield , but the place thats doing it does not want to remove the mirror, Â because they dont know what kind of electronics are involved with it and dont want to cause any damage any help would be great. Â thanks.
Answer1:Removes like a normal mirror..
you can’t remove the rain sensor, if you do it won’t work anymore, but the mirror is no big deal..
unplug the connectors and there is a t-15 or t-20 torx screw that holds it to the glass mount..
Answer2:From the Service Manual it looks like the sensor can be removed, but there is a mounting bracket that is bonded to the windshield. The mounting bracket is not meant to be removed.
Answer3: Removing the bracket and resinstalling it will have ill-effects on the rain sensor. as I understand it, it will not work correctly or at all because there is a specific angle and “trim” that has to be met for the sensor to “see” the rain..
my tint shop just cut around the rain sensor and they did a very good job at it, it looks like part of the tint strip..
same way they cut around the third brake light in the rear window.
