Relocate rear view mirror

I want to move my rear view mirror in my Camaro up a few inches.

What is the best way to remove it safely? Solvents?

What is the best adhesive to re-install it?

Usually mine falls off when I hit it with my head doing interior work. They do make a rearview mirror adhesive kit that can be had at most automotive parts stores for a few bucks. Not sure how to remove it carefully though.

I have seen the rearview glue on kits at the parts stores. I have heard they don't work.

Does anyone do this sort of thing on a regular basis? Is there someone you can ask that does?

Lluciano, get a good grip on it and pull. it will come off. get the little kit for remounting rearview mirrors, it's in a little plastic blister pack. i've had better results with it than the cheapo mirror adhesive. it's probably the same thing... but i've not had to reattach my mirror since i used the more costly stuff. and more IS NOT BETTER. get it where you want it, and use a piece of tape to hold it in place and allow to dry there overnight.

Any glass shop or the a dealer has mirror attachment kits. Not very expensive. Just make sure you have it where you want it, before you permanently attach it.
