    Any auto parts store will sell the rear view window adhesive glue.

    I have found the "Permatex" brand rear view adhesive is the best I've tried so far /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif. (says it is OEM compliant) Still holding with all the vibrations of my stereo and the road! /forums/images/graemlins/woot.gif

    I've tried other ones and they don't hold and the mirror falls off in a short period of time /forums/images/graemlins/doah.gif.

    The company that installed my windshield one time said they'd do it for free. It only takes them a few minutes and a couple drops of glue and gives them a good reputation. Might call a few windshield places and see how much they'd charge, maybe you'll get lucky. /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif

    Mine popped off and took out a small chunk of glass with it. A bud told me to try some GE silicon adhesive. I thought oh yeah, that will not work. But he insisted, so I tried it and lo, it worked like a champ. A little flexible but has not let go after two years.
