    Driver side mirror glass fell off!!!!

    So was I was driving I noticed the glass for my side mirror was shaking something awful. I went to touch it at the lights and the thing fell off. Is this something I can glue back on??? Gorilla glue or silicone may work?

    Super glue worked for mine. It has been glued on for over a year now, and no problem.

    Super glue gel is your bestest friend. And should it fall off again and crash to floor....the local automotive glass shop can trace you a replacement piece to fit ~ much cheaper than dealer and most other part shops.

    Same thing happened to us. I ended up using JB Weld...I just taped it in place while it was drying. It's never gonna come off again.

    I'd use a silicone adhesive rather than super-glues. Some cyanoacrylates tend to loose strength when exposed to wet conditions. "Gorilla" glue might be OK.

    I would rather use a silicone adhesive as well.
