Replacing the glass for a heated side view mirror

I have the replacement glass mirror and the original heater membrane, what type of adhesive is required to adhere the glass mirror to the heater membrane?

Posted by on

    I already have the words Glass and Adhesive in the description of the request.

    I understand that there are glass adhesives, but what is recommended for adhereing the glass to the membrane? I need to ensure the heater element in the membrane does not weaken the adhesive and cause the glass to fall of again.

    Is there a brand name product?

    Simple - I used contact cement.
    4 years later, still holding strong.

    From experience, at my cousin's autobody repair shop, they use a silicone-based adhesive. (SELF-ADHESIVE GLUE) All replacement mirrors, when ordered, usually come with an adhesive backing on the heater grid.

    Some of the heated day/night mirrors have a metal locking lever, about 5" long...in addition to the dbl

    sided adhesive.

    The glue looks and feels like either tacky glue or wood putty. It is tan or black and very strong.
    I believe it is called guerilla glue

How to replace outside side power mirrors in original housing? 2008 Ford Edge


Google replacement mirror glass for Ford Edge 08.

They make a replacement mirror glass available that uses double sticky tape. This has worked great for me. The heated function still continued to work!! In my case I replaced a scratched mirror leaving the old mirror in place. If yours is broken included is a link for a procedure to replace a broken mirror.

Confirm the dimensions before purchasing. Some car manufactures have more than one design for different model cars same year..

You can try a 'superglue' used for sticking interior mirrors back in place. images below are generic. Most car accessory shops will sell suitable glues:

Replacing a rear view mirror


You have to CAREFULLY ( probably wise to wear safety goggles ) and with a flat blade screwdriver, pry out ALL the broken mirror glass wearing gloves. Now with the 2 adhesive strips, align mirror glass and adhere to base. Hope this helps
