Question about 2004 Chevrolet S-10

Chevy S10 Rearview Mirror glue sticks, but temporarily

The rearview mirror on our Chevy S10 fell off. We've gone thru 3 adhesive kits step-by-step to get it back on. Each time, the little metal plate sticks to the window as it's supposed to, but when we try to (gently) put the mirror back on, the entire thing falls off. '

The last kit had a piece of sandpaper to rough up the surface of the metal. Could we use it to lightly roughen the surface of the window so the adhesive sticks better? We're getting really frustrated!

At this point, I'd take it to a glass shop that does windshields and let them try the commercial adhesive.

Go to your local auto retailer and you can but special glue that is like superglue, but cures in sunlight. Underneath the mirror there is usually a single screw. Remove that and the mirror releases the plate that sticks to the glass.

How do I attach a review mirror for a 1994 thunderbird lx


Go to an auto parts store and buy rearview mirror adhesive. Your rearview mirror will separate from the small mounting piece that adheres to the windshield. Clean off the glass where it will sit. Follow the directions on the adhesive package and install the mount on the windshield. Once it dries, install the mirror on the mount. Rearview mirror adhesive is one of the most powerful adhesives on the market. Don't use anything but rearview mirror adhesive or the mirror will not hold.

Rearview mirror fell off windshield while car was parked unused for a week


You can buy a special bonding adhesive at a parts store to fix this. Usually there is a piece that the mirror attaches to, which is glued to the windshield. You will need to follow the instructions on the bonding adhesive, which will include cleaning the area where you will attach the mirror, and usually you separate the base mount from the mirror, glue it, hold in place with pressure for about 1 minute, reattach mirror, and you will be good to go.

How replace mirror on windscreen?


This happens a lot. There are several brands of adhesives sold at autoparts stores just for rearview mirrors. You should see an outline of the glue on the inside. Take some tape on the outside and mark where the glue is. Then use a razorblade and the solvent in the repair kit and clean the inside. The mirror comes out of the holder with an allen wrench. Follow the instructions in the kit and press the mount to the windshield. Hold it there at least 3 minutes. Wait for it to dry per instructions. Then add the mirror and lightly tighten the mirror to the base. I like the kits which have 2 parts of glue. On my car I let the excess glue stay on the window.

INTERIOR REARVIEW MIRROR FELL OFF


Just about all auto parts stores carry a little kit that includes slovent and glue to replace the metal "nub" onto the glass. There is a screw on the mirror that attaches the mirror to this "nub". Do not use force to remove the old glue or nub, windshield will crack.
