Yes there is is you have a broken glass you can go to a local mirror shop and they can cut you a new one for about 10 bucks, then you can supergule it onto the inside fixture where the glass rests and hold it for about 4 minutes in place. Or use masking tape to hold it in postion. There are some plastics that super glue wont stick to so you may have to try 5 minute epoxy to hold it in place mix enought so that the epoxy will surrround baracket that holds the mirror.

On my 1991 S-10 the left side window has seporated from the regulator and does not track up and down

Hi Terry

first get your door panel off get all the screws and handles off bottons and pry easy from behind the bottom panel to pop off the plastic holders in the door assembly, then lift off the door move and insulation or plastic cover over the openings of the door. Now you will see the window and the trac what need is a very strong bonding glue the same Glue maybe at our automotive supply store, or that window repair place shops use, if you can get a tube of that you make sure your track is clean leave the felt that you find in the trac, do not remove it,,, fill the trac with a bead of this special silicone or bonding agent once you locate it,, thats when you should attempt to put the window back in the track when doing so put glass in the tract which is filled with this bond silocone type type glue lineup everything and wind the window up along with the window and make sure the window goes deep into the trac and is tight up in the closed pssition u maywant to put a block of wood just before raising the window so you can make sure the glass bottoms out in the trac remove block, and lock window in position dont use your window for a week just to be safe,,, it should cure and wont pop out of the tract, pay attention if your trac is not broken or screws or assembly came loose. You can fix tis no problem im sure

I drove in highway and suddenly my right side mirror separate from mirror and Motor. What should I do? My husband tried to push in but it doesn't work. The motor it made been broken.

The mirrors are usually held in place by a little plastic strip with teeth which are driven by the motor. If you do not need to adjust it constantly, you can glue it in place with some RTV gasket sealer (as glue) Any auto parts store will have a small tube of it. They may even recommend somthing better. Replacing with a new one will cost a lot. $80 to 800 depending on the car. A tube of glue or gasket forming material will be 5 to 15 $.

The window is unglued on the bottom and sides.

The dealer can fix virtually any problem with a late model car. But, if you use epoxy or trim adhesive, you may be able to do the repair yourself.

I once used 'gel' super glue to exactly meter and put glue where it belongs and get an instant bond on rubber to glass or rubber to metal bonding.

My rear view mirror broke while i was adjusting it to see my son in the back seat, it broke the plastic and i used a bonding glue that the nam gave me at the hardware store I got it on on but when i went...

Use a razor blade scraper.These work the best for removing the glue.Be very careful.Go to a part store and ask for the adhesive for repairing rear view mirrors.It comes in a kit with the cleaner and the glue and instructions.You have to remove the mounting piece from the mirror and clean it also.Make sure you put the mounting piece on correctly or you will have to remove it again and it won`t be easy.Use a piece of tape for a mark on the out side of the windshield before you remove the glue from the inside so you know where the mirror was mounted.Follow the instructions carefully and this will take care of your problem.Auto Zone has this in stock.Hope this helps.Good luck.
