Well I took the trim off around my rear view mirror to install a radar detector, and the entire mirror popped off. I barely even touched it, so I figured it would be a piece of cake to pop back on. Nope. I'm guessing that clip is supposed to pop over the hex shaped base there, but no dice. I'm a young, strong, warm blooded male and I'm putting my whole body into pushing this clip back on and it won't pop on. Anyone had to do this? Any tips? I'll feel like such a moron if I have to drive an hour to the dealership like this so they can do it for me.

Great work guys. But in this arctic cold in the northeast these past couple weeks, be careful with the plastic and glass! Use a hair dryer or heat gun if you are near or below freezing.

Did you have success in getting the detector working?
Nope, snapped off the little flat pin connector trying to shove it into a wire harness. I ordered a different brand, I'll try again when it gets here.
