E30 (1982 - 1993)
God's Chariot. The E30 was produced primarily from 1982 through 1991. The cabriolet was the one exception which was produced through 1993.

Arrow Removing a rear view mirror afixing "button"

Anyone ever get one of these off?
I'm looking at the back of my rearview mirror and there are spanner wrench cut outs which I tried to turn counterclockwise, but to no avail would it "release" from the mirror bracket. Is there something else I should try to seperate the 2? I can see where the 2 pieces are put together. ( The bracket and the "button" which gets glued onto the windshield)
Damn thig fell off last night driving home from the LA Galaxy David Beckham first goal with the Galaxy game in Carson at the Home Depot Center.
Crazy.

Ok... I just affixed the Mirror.. Wanna know how?

It "recommends" that you do not move anything after gluing and placing on windscreen, but....
If you can't get the blankety blankin' thing off, do it anyways and see what happens!
After cleaning, scraping the windsheild clean of any remaining glue on the glass, prepping with "pre adhesive activator" and waiting 2 minutes.. "at least", I just went for it and tried to hold the entire mirror assembly on the glass without so much as sliding or slipping for over a minute for the glue to set and VIOLA!!!
The sucker is on and not dropping onto the shift console. Now to wait the recommended 30 minutes before driving. Thats the hard part.
You gotta do what cha gotta do to get the job done.
