Where can I get listings for free, donated office furniture, in Anaheim, CA?
This is a common problem, take this to a body shop or to a glass shop or fix it yourself this way.
1. Take a piece of masking tape and place it on the outside of the windshield where you see the glue that was originally holding up the review mirror.
2. In the base of the mirror there is a tab that you remove from the mirror. itself
3. Take a single edge razor blade and remove the glue that is left on the window and on the tab.
4. Take some 220 grit sand paper and sand the area where the mirror used to stick. (This is why you mark the windshield first with a piece of tape so that you will know where it goes back).
5. Sand the flat side of the tab that would stick to the windsheild.
6. Then go to Auto Zone or Advance Auto and get "Locktight" rear view mirror adhesive. (Locktight is one word.)
7. Read the directions to the Locktight rear view mirror adhesive.
8. Follow the directions and place the little tab that holds the mirror in place on the windshield. Give it at least 24 hours to cure and set itself then you can slide the mirror back up on the tab.
Better yet take it to a windshield repair shop and they'll fix it at little expense to you.
