    interior mirror fell off

    playing about with my vectra mirror earlier today and it came off the windscreen in my hand, even the clip that was stuck to the windscreen...

    tried a mirror sticky pad but cos the mirror is fairly heavy it fell straight back off so do i need a new windscreen or can you buy some sort of bond?

    Need to use the mirror pad to stick the bracket back on (Use white spirit to clean the screen) then put the mirror on the pad.
    The truth is always the truth even if you haven't realised it yet...

    would trim tape be stronger?

    alternatively glue it on using araldite or something - might make a mess if your not careful though
