I followed the directions exactly. (Metal connector to glass) The auto parts guy told me to try doing the repair in the evening when the windshield is cool. The first time I followed the direction which advise to put "one drop of glue". Waited 30 minutes to dry (it said only 15). The mirror fell off within 24 hours. Then I tried it again, using a bit more glue. It stayed put until I tried to adjust the mirror. Then plunked right off. I tried a THIRD time and used the rest of the glue in the pacakge- really got it good and wet, almost worried it would drip and screw up the dash, so used a towel on the dashboard just in case. I left if overnight to cure and the mirror has held up a week, but not convinced it will hold through the year with adjustments. (two drivers use this and adjust often)

  • Cash Reduction

Comments about Permatex Professional Strength Rearview Mirror Adhesive:

Permatex makes MANY great products I've used over the years. But this stuff? Not one of them. I followed the instructions explicitly, and it failed within one minute of attempting to mount the mirror. I even doubled-down and bought a second kit of the same type, thinking I did something wrong. Nope.
I ended up asking an installer for Safelite what they use- and it worked, no problems at all.

Will not hold!

By

Comments about Permatex Professional Strength Rearview Mirror Adhesive:

I followed the direction, but waited over 4 hours instead of 30 minutes. I put the mirror on and the thing fell right off. The glue was still wet! Avoid this product I have used as different stuff many years ago, that worked. I can't remember what the product was or where I had purchased it.

      Comments about Permatex Professional Strength Rearview Mirror Adhesive:

      Worked great. Instructions said to remove mirror mount button first and glue that to window then wait 30 minutes to remount mirror to button. Former owner had glued button to mount so had to glue whole assembly all at once. Held for 4 minutes instead of the one min in instructions... full weight of whole assembly did not dislodge the glue - still attached 12 hours later. Very please with product so far.

          When your review mirror falls off, put it back on with this stuff so you can LOOK BACK.

              very simple instruction. I didn't have any luck with this product maybe due to summer heat . I applied late afternoon , I cleaned and held to t the glass for 2 min. I allowed 24hrs before putting mirror on. My truck sat about a week cause its not a dd and I after shutting door around 5 times it pooped off. I'm going to try the 3m product and see how it works for me.

                  user friendly instructions, glued mirror to windshield instantly.....But two months later the MIRROR JUST FELL OFF. I was sitting in my car during my lunch hour, Went to adjust the mirror and as soon as I put my hand on it, it came right off. I didn't apply pressure or get the chance to adjust it, literally it just came right off.

                      A:

                      Insert a small enough standard screwdriver into the rectangular slot in the bottom of the mounting bracket. Inserting it straight back, simultaneously push with the screwdriver against the piece of metal that it will touch and press against the metal tab in the opposite direction (the one it needs to go in to come out of the bracket) until it comes off.
