Rear View Mirror Removal

Postby Bluestreak on Sat Feb 04, 2023 9:24 am

987.2 Boxster. Is it possible to remove the rear view mirror from the windshield? How? I want to have a windshield tint strip applied to the upper part of the windshield and the application would be easier if I could remove the mirror and bracket that holds it.

Haven't tried it myself, but there is a scan of a technical manual showing the removal process here: https://www.planet-9.com/threads/internal-rear-view-mirror.238071/

Scroll down a few posts in the replies and there is a PDF. They show a locking pliers with non-marring jaws, you might be able to duplicate by wrapping the mirror base in cloth.

Or wait for someone who's done it to chime in.

Thank you Eric! I will give that a try. Hopefully I don't break the windshield in the process. :D
