    I did in the end try some transparent siliocn sealent. I put a good amount on the mirror plate and it is now "setting". I did think also of the glue you used, but I did not have any in the garage. This seems to be sticking ok so far.

    It's not advisable to superglue an interior mirror back on to the windscreen if it falls off. Something to do with superglue not being able to expand and contract with heat and thus can crack the screen. I just hope for the sake of people who've superglued their door mirrors back on that the same doesn't apply as well?

    On the paint work yes Terry. But a lot more gentle on the glass.
    Seems another Vauxhall issue. The mirror glass falling out. They must be using "duff" glue. Both side,s have fell out now.
