Re: [DML] The Rear View Mirror Issue

  I understand that it is different than American cars, but are you really this upset for having to buy a 15 cent mirror pad??  There is nothing wrong with the windshield or the rear view mirror.
  You must make sure you have properly cleaned and prepared the area before applying the glue, and it will stay there for thousands and thousands of miles.

Could someone please explain why we must attach our rear-view mirror with
that awful tape pad? I understand that the window may crack due to the
difference in expansion ratios between the metal foot, the hard adhesive and
the glass when using the conventional adhesives. I guess the real question
here is how did this situation come about in the first place and who was
responsible? The second question is: Will using a plastic aftermarket mirror
shoe facilitate the use of regular window adhesive? Third: Can a flexible
adhesive that will expand and contract with temperature such as "GOOP" or
silicone be acceptable? Fourth: Are we simply stuck with a *(#$! quality
windshield? Last: How come this happened to us instead of the Mustang owners
