    Go to your local autoglass or rac autowindscreens , they will do it for not alot of cash , with the right adhesive , plus you get a guarantee if it comes off again.
    The stuff they sell aftermarket aint good enough mate.

    I've not actually looked, but I am pretty sure the Vec doesn't use the sticky mirror pads.
    I'm sure you'll find the mirror should slide on and off of a bracket that is bonded to the screen.
    You could attempt to re-bond this yourself, don’t use superglue, use the proper stuff, glass bond as said.
    And be careful, it doesn't take a whole lot of pressure to crack a screen, probably a lot less than you may think.
    And without wanting to state the obvious, make sure you get it the right way up, because if it is upside you’ll probably break the screen getting it off, you may laugh, but I have seen this done more than once !
    If you are not confident, for what it is likely cost you, a few pounds no more, I’d take it to the experts, your local windscreen fitters like AutoGlass for example. They'll have the proper professional kit with all the correct primers etc.


    Edit: to slow, lol.

    i have heard that suprglue can crack he screen as it contracts!

    buy the proper stuff for a few quid, it consists of the correct glue and a very fine gauze that soaks up the glue so to speak and goes between mirror bracket and glass. only a few quid, loctite i think
