Hi John, I had a small tide mark at the top of my rear view mirror that I noticed on Friday. I read a few threads on here and they recommended removing it from the car and then removing the glass ASAP. I can tell you that as soon as I started to take it apart the fluid started to come out and it is really corrosive to the plastics. So good advise is to change this mirror before it does any damage to the centre console or the mirror. I will send you a PM for a new rear view and side mirrors as I might as well do them all at the same time. Martin

That's strange...? Perhaps the plus sign has got rubbed off? When I did mine, the positive terminal was the top one, if you're looking at it, like so:

Don't worry about the + ve and - ve, just make sure the light sensor is positioned above the flattened section on the mirror glass. If you look at the mirror it isn't symmetrical. It will make sense when you look at it again!
