I can't get my rear view mirror to stay on. I'm on my second adhesive kit in the last 2 months and the mirror won't stay on. I follow the instructions, I clean the area, I apply the base and let it set over night before attaching the mirror...what gives?
Use a razor blade to scrape the are clean of debris, clean it well with alchohol, apply adheisive and base, push firmly, let sit overnight, attach mirror. Mine has been on for several years and still strong. Be sure to scrape the back of the base well with the razor blade and clean it very good also.

I think I may try a glass shop, because I've done the $5 auto store fixes. Didn't end up with a glue/cement mixture...but I wiped down the area with alcohol, used a razor blade on the glass and on the base, applied cement, let it sit with pressure, then let it sit for an entire day, then applied the mirror. Twice...
I had this done for free at the local glass shop. The idiot glued the whole mirror on, I couldn't get it off the tab/windshield, then a few months later it fell off again. Best part was yet to come, all the extra glue he used caused the windsheild to crack when we got snow this past winter. You can see the crack starts at the excess glue and runs straight down the middle of the windshield.
