Fig. Fig. 1: Locating the mirror support

  1. Clean the inside glass within 3 in. (76mm) of the intersecting lines. Using a glass cleaning solution, rub the area until completely dry. Reclean with a towel saturated with alcohol.
  3. Sand the bonding surface of the rear view mirror support with 320 grit sandpaper. Remove all traces of the factory adhesive if reusing the old support. Wipe the mirror support with alcohol and allow to dry.
  5. Apply Loctite® Minute Bond Adhesive 312, or equivalent to the mirror support bonding surfaces.
  7. Place the bottom of the support at the premarked line. The rounded edge of the support should face upward.
  9. Press the support against the glass for 30-60 seconds with a steady pressure. Allow the adhesive to dry 5 minutes before cleaning.
  11. Clean all traces of adhesive and wax from the windshield with alcohol.
