    Moved the swing back mirror on a '99 Chevy P/U and POP, (literally) and the darn thing POPPED OFF.

    I can see between the mirror and shroud that there is a spring loaded retaining clip that holds the Assembly onto the pivot shaft that has come off.

    ?? How do I remove the mirror, (glass) so I can re secure the retaining clip on th swivel? Or is there another way in?

    Thanks,

    Brad...ster

    I have bodyshop background. Many, but not all of those glass assemblies are seated in a plastic ball joint-type socket. and usually (but not always of course) you can GENTLY get behind the mirror frame with a little pry tool and pop that piece out to give you access to the inside stuff.

    -Usually....

    PS...there are USUALLY 2 or 3 of those ball sockets in a mirror, right where the little motors are to pivot it in and out, up and down.

    I am far from an expert in auto mirrors but I know from a broken mirror experience on my daughter's car that each part of the mirror is generally obtainable from your local dealer. That being said, if you try to get the mirror off and you break it, you can probably get just a new mirror glass for a small price. I'd definately check with your local dealer parts department, they will also be the best ones to help you determine how to put it back.
