    It fell off mine too. I caught it before it hit the ground.
    I used some clear silicon sealent to "glue" it back on. So far it has been ok, that was several months back when it fell off.
    The heated function still works on mine as well.

    I carefully removed the backing plate then squirted quite a bit onto the backing plate then put the glass back in place and put a "weight" on it for a while till it had set. The carefullu put the glass/backing plate back into the mirror housing.
