Want to replace picture with mirror

How do I remove the picture from the wall of my Sightseer. We want to replace it with a mirror so whoever is sitting in the rear facing seat of the dinette can see out the widshield. I sometimes call her "Gladys".

If it's like mine, it has a hook on the top and velcro on the bottom. Just pull the bottom out and lift it off. Carefully, just in case!

If the picture does not have the velcro as the Finhawk suggested it may be attached with double sided tape like the mirrir in my Journey. If that is the case, the easiest way to remove the picture without damaging the wall covering is to place fishing line accross the top of the picture and pull it back and forth in a sawing motion until it cuts through the foam beween the adhesive strips on either side of the tape. Had to do it several times on items attached with the double sided tape and it works like a champ.

Thats a great idea, never thought of using fishing line. I file that idea away for future use.

Question Thanks

Thanks for your help. Velcro or tape it should be no problem to remove.
Since the mirror will be behind the slide wall during travel I would think any type of glass mirror should work.

This is a good way to remove auto/truck emblems and dealer crap that is sometimes not too nice to have installed.
