The interior rear view mirror fell off on our 2002 Silhouette. How do we re-install?
follow the instructions on the kit you buy, do EXACTLY as they instruct or the mirror will fall off again, get a 3M brand kit or a GM oem kit from the dealer, don't use any junky kits from places like Kragen or Autozone. mark the outside of the windshield with a magic marker before you scape off the old adhesive, after u have the window glass clean then scrape off the adhesive from the mirror pad and lightly sand the metal, make sure you don't touch the mounting surfaces with your fingers, use the viel of accelerator supplied with the kit and apply it to the the glass and mirror pad, let dry for 3 minutes, then apply 2 or 3 drops of adhesive to the mirror pad and firmly press the pad in place, make sure u have it mounted righ side up!!! double check the oreintation before you glue it! do a dry run so to speak, then with adhesive applied press the metal pad onto the glass and hold in place for 3 minutes, this is very important, then let the pad cure for 12 hours before u put the mirror back on, if you follow the instructions u just saved yourself at least $50.00 in labor costs, the kit is around $5.00
