    confused Mirrors suddenly fell off

    Has anyone else encountered this recently, please?
    About two weeks ago, the offside mirror of my 04 Signum just fell apart while driving home. There is no impact or other damage to the housing. The mirror (heated and power adjustable) just de-laminated and the glass fell away from the plastic backing. I couldn't see any obvious separation marks on the surface. Putting it down to bad luck, I purchased a new, official replacement and fitted it.
    Yesterday, I walked out to my car and found the nearside mirror had done exactly the same thing. The glass was intact, on the driveway, with only a small chip where it landed.
    The car is parked outside, but Devon isn't exactly an extreme climate. What is going on? Two mirrors failing in two weeks is a bit of a co-incidence, isn't it.
    Thanks
    Neil
