The rear view mirror in a Ford F-150 pickup is attached to a small steel mounting tab on the windshield. This mounting tab is affixed to the windshield with a special glass adhesive. The mirror slides onto this tab from the top and is held in place by a small steel set screw. The rear view mirror is made from hi-impact, ABS plastic. Replacement rear view mirrors are available from auto parts stores, automotive salvage yards and licensed Ford dealerships.
