Quick Tip: Keep Rearview Mirrors From Falling Off


Summer is around and if this has ever happened to you, here’s a quick preventative fix I used after getting mine reattached last year


Simply put some electrical tape right over the base. This will keep the sun from creating the glare that melts it off. As you can see in my picture, the tape has begun to peel. Once it does you may remove the top layer to leave a sticky residue under it to make it less noticeable if you’re OCD about it. I’d rather have a small blemish to my windshield than have the mirror fall off again. It’s also not visible from inside the car as long as you make it a bit smaller than the base.

That’s just my quick solution. You can probably come up with something less ugly for the same effect.
