    Default Wing mirror glass !

    About 4 weeks ago, my drivers side wing mirror glass came free from it's mounting plate. Ok i thought, bit of double sided tape, re fitted the glass and all's been fine since.
    Yesterday, driving down the M6/M5, the passenger side mirror glass starts coming away !
    Managed to get off the motorway and remove it completely just as it was about to come away altogether.

    Anyone else had this problem ?


    Have consideration for the deaf, if you're gunna fart, make it smell !

    Yes phil it is common. Both mine have dropped out. But I managed to catch to one side, and stuck it back in with silicon sealer. The heated mirrors still work too.

    Yep has happened on all the Vectra C/Signums we have had. I remove the plastic holder then alradite them back on with a fine smear all across the holder. Tape them up with masking tape and leave to dry for a few hours ideally in the sun then refit. They have all been fine since doing it this way
