    Interesting question, my passenger side mirror glass fell out today also.

    I would be interested in this advice also.

    look on ebay, you can get the heated mirror and backing for about 15 quid. takes a minute or so to swap em over.

    I bought the "propor VX glass" it was £27 trade.
    It seems there is an issue with the glass dropping out, they told me it was starting to happen with the Meriva now too.

    Was that just for the glass with the adhesive on there?

    Common problem this, lots of people have just got a cheap glass from ebay and stuck in on with no probs, check the other one as well to make sure it's stuck on right

    It was with it,s backing plate, that fitted to the door mirror body (so to speak) It just pressed back into place into the "moveable" part of the mirror mechanism.
