    Glass costs £29 from Vx but i didnt buy it as the temporary glass i got on there is just as good...on the drivers side mirror theres 2 sections in the glass one small section on the right and a large one on the left i was wondering is it supposed to be like that on the passengers side aswel because the one vx had didnt seem to have this subsection either??

    just bought one from the stealers,they told me they sell dozens when we have a severe frost,the adhesive goes brittle and the glass falls of the back panel which it is supposed to be stuck to.this happened to me when i was washing it.

    Isn't this forum terrific?

    Just gave the car a quick clean, and whilst drying the driver's side mirror, the glass came off in my hand!

    Cleaned and dried everything then booted up the lappie and searched on here! Cheers everyone, lots of other threads and lots of advice. Stuck mine back on with ceramic adhesive and, fingers crossed, all okay. £30 saved by all accounts...now what can I spend that on? lol
