    Icon8 My rear View mirror Keeps falling off anyone know a good glue for it ??

    OK here is my problem my bass keeps knocking my dang rear view mirror off my windshield ... i literally have put it back on there about 10 times i finally got tired of buyin permatex rear view mirror professional strength adhesive and resorted to super glue , because it is cheaper. what do you guys suggest for a good adhesive for this because im really getting tired of messing with it and i don't want to have to mount it every other day!!

    I havent had my rear view on for months and havent missed it honestly. But some windshield/rear view mirror glue should work...pretty sure they sell it exclusively for rear view mirrors attaching to glass

    Possibly look up online a semi-flexible, strong epoxy to use

    Your bass is too loud
    Try gorilla glue, i think it's a good bit stronger than super glue

    I think you'll be wanting something that isnt very brittle once cured...I think the gorilla super glue says its more shock-resistant so it may be something to try

    I had that problem in my Jimmy. The mirror wouldn't tighten all the way onto the button. If the mirror is loose on the button and won't tighten, buy a new mirror. It will only keep falling off. The mirror will vibrate a lot more if it's loose on the button, causing the adhesive on the button to fail much sooner than it should. I haven't had any trouble since I got my new mirror.

    I've used it but not in that particular situation, luckily my RV mirror is still intact (knock on wood). But I've used it to bond other things and it works really well, not too sure if it will work in your situation, with glass to plastic, but it's deff worth a try. I can promise u it will work better than super glue.
