Today while i was cleaning my windshield, i got so excited and i accidentally hit my Rearview mirror and i broke it :banghead: .....so the question is how to properly glue it back ???
I always felt the same, i'm 6'1" , but i'm worried about the old glue , does the scratcher in the kit really works ?Don't feel bad, my wife was sitting in the passenger seat one day, grabbed the rearview mirror and pulled it over twords her so she could see herself for some vain reason, and the mirror came off in her hand. I used that same kit that IslandTJ mentioned. if the mirror wasn't exactly where you liked it before, now is the time to adjust it. I'm 6'2" and the mirror always seemed alittle low for me, so when I reglued the mirror mount, I put it alittle higher, now it's perfect for me.
My body shop guy (good friend of mine) told me 99% of people do not use those kits right, he said my problem is I used the kit right but put the tab backwardsvillage idiot said:I've had mine fall off 3 times in the past year. Most recently yesterday, and just while I was motoring down the street, no bumps. I've used the Permatex kit as illustrated, and I think I'm prepping and cleaning as well as possible. I don't know what to do, that's a heavy mirror. I'll just glue it on again, I guess.
I used the razor to clean the old glue off the windshield, and the mount then scuffed up both surfaces, and cleaned them with the alcohol wipe, let it dry, and marked the windshield with dry erase marker on where I wanted the the mirror mount to go, then I just put a small amount of glue on the mount and let it spread for a few seconds b4 I put it up to the glass. then held it in place for a minute. and let it cure for 24 hours before I put the mirror back on. it's been on for about a year. The wife doesn't mess with it anymore.:thumb:I always felt the same, i'm 6'1" , but i'm worried about the old glue , does the scratcher in the kit really works ?
