The mirror glass fell off the nearside wing mirror of my T3 (thankfully not while driving :unsure: )

It's just the glass not the fixing behind it, looks like it was bonded on somehow? It's a heated mirror so unsure what glue to use to fix back on.

I used superglue when my mirror and its plastic rear mounting parted company.

I used 2 part epoxy on my old T2 & more recently on my T3

Gorilla glue in a side by side syringe is easy to use so you get the correct dosage, have some masking tape handy if your doing it in situ on the car to hold the glass in place while it sets, tale the the top & sides of the glass to prevent it sliding down before it sets.

Good luck

2 part epoxy worked fine for me - Gorilla branded was what I had at the time
