My recent adventures in windshield mirror replacement on my '95 S6 has
provided me with some rather non-obvious information which should perhaps
be passed along.
Following the advice of several others (and my own past experience, I might
add) I looked in vain for a setscrew holding the mirror assembly to the
glue "button". None exists on these mirrors. Instead, the ball joint upon
which the mirror swivels on its mount simply pops apart. Believe me, this
takes nerves of steel the first time you do it without knowing for sure
that it is the proper thing to do. Grasp the mounting bracket in one hand
and the mirror head in the other and pull. It will pop apart.
Now you proceed to glue the bracket which includes the steel glue "button"
to the window as directed by the packaging of the glue kit. Once the glue
has set for several hours the mirror head then can be pressed back onto the
ball of the bracket. Place the mirror in the correct position and with
thumbs on the mirror head and fingers on the bracket simply squeeze them
together until the ball of the mounting bracket pops back in to the socket
of the mirror head. Be firm but gentle.
