Hello,

The glass part of the wing mirror has fallen off my girlfriends Civic. It’s not broken and the back of the glass is clean. It doesn’t look like there was any glue on it even! So, as a new self adhesive mirror glass is £30 odd, I would like to glue the old one back on. But what should I use to glue it back on?

I’ve had a look in my garage and I only have wood glue and No More Nails. Neither are any good, No More Nails specifically says not to use on mirrors. Any ideas? If it makes a difference, the mirror is heated.

Thanks,

Dan

Wasn't sure whether to use one of these silicone adhesives or epoxy or what. I've seen this: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Evo-Stik-320130-Rear-Mirro...

No more nails will be fine, they only say 'no mirrors' to stop folks from hanging 25 Kg wall mirrors with it. Perfect for the job on the car.

I think that specific product is for attaching your internal mirror to the windscreen.

For an external mirror glass I would use good old-fashioned EVO-STIK and follow the instructions properly. Namely coat BOTH surfaces and let it become dry to the touch before pressing together. Good stuff.

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Evo-Stik-Impact-Adhesive-3...

"Provides a High strength strong bond on contact without the need for special support, jigs, clamps or weights."

PS Even better if you can get the trade version. Now restricted sale due to the activities of idiots.

I seriously suggest that you do not use Evo Stick for heated wing mirrors no matter how careful you are in sticking them on in 6 months it drys out and they fall off and smash!
