VW Sirocco – rear view mirror got knocked off.
Tried the pads you can get from Halfords etc.
Yes I cleaned both surfaces with acetone and warmed up the surfaces – it still only stayed stuck for a week or two.
It seems the contact area is a bit small for this method of attachment, when driving the “give” in the pad allows the mirror to wobble a bit, and after a week or so it falls off.
I reckon I need a thin glue like, but not, Super Glue ( tried Super Glue – that didn’t work )
Tried Evo Stick Impact adhesive – no good.
Tried Epoxy glue – no good.
Any suggestions folks ?

I found this stuff = Loctite 319 Rear View Mirror Bonder – and that was after phoning Halfords to ask if they sold a glue for the purpose and being told they did not. Their website said they do, so on ringing back and quoting the part number, they DO have it – The muppets wasted an hour of my time with duff info !!!! – so far the points will go to Kevin Friend though for useful info
