Remove wall mirror from bathroom

I need to remove a bathroom wall mirror from over the sink in a Coachman Class C. It has 2 silver clips at the top and 2 at the bottom. It will not slide out from the side. Does anyone know if they are glued in place or not? need help.

They are usually glued and come out in pieces

The wall-mirror in our commode room was attached with strips of double-sided tape. I used an old hair dryer to heat the mirror enough to soften the glue, then gently pried it off the wall. Then I removed the remaining tape from the wall.

They (silver clasps) might be screwed into the wall try either going up or down holding the mirror to slide the mirror out of the clasps. Don't break it 7 years is a long time... LOL

I do think the silver clips are there to help hold the mirror on the wall, but it will not move either to the left or the right. It fells like, Something is holding it in place. I am hoping that someone has taken one down and can tell me about how they did it.

Cut it off the wall with a length of fishing line.

We had a mirror (not in the bathroom) that was fastened with a frame and double stick tape...maybe three wide strips. Since mine was already broken, I pried the remainder with little additional breakage. Carefully to avoid tearing the wall surface. The fishing line sounds like a good method.

Agreed, that's what the shops use.

FWIW, I tried using dental floss to cut the double-sided tape(supposed to be more abrasive). Didn't work, the 1" wide HD tape is too thick and dense. That's when I used DW's old hair dryer and a long putty knife to pry it loose, most tape remained on the wall.

Use a putty knife and slip it under the top clips. Tap or push the upper clips up. They should rise just above the top edge of the mirror. You can then determine if there is any tape or glue on the mirror by "gently" prying at the top of the mirror.
If it is still stuck to the wall. For safety, criss-cross duct tape on the face before trying any further method of removal.

A picture of the clips may help. I would see if the top two clips can be pushed up or pivoted up and off the mirror edge. A stiff putty knife would help with this. When trying to remove a mirror in any manner safety is important. If you put a few strips of duct tape on the mirror first thing then if you happen to break the mirror trying to free it from the wall it keeps loose shards of glass from falling and doing damage to you or counter tops or other things. If you can't get the mirror off in any visible way I have broken them on purpose and taken them down in pieces. Tape it up good. Wear good gloves. Protect surrounding surfaces and them whack it with a hammer.

I was in the Facilities dept.for a company for 28 years 7 bldgs. and countless bathrooms that is how they are installed. Try moving the clips up on the top of the mirror and the bottoms ones down.
Don't believe me. Okay go ask them at a Hardware store. Then come back and tell us who's right.

Tim,

Hate to break it to you Buddy, but the bottom clips won't slide. They are solid mount to support the mirror. The top ones have slotted holes and are made to slide up to release the mirror for removal. LOL

There should be an adhesive paper/plastic backing to prevent shattering if it breaks.
