I bought the Burco inserts from eBay and replaced leaking dimming mirrors almost a year ago. They come with these "redi stick patches" (very thin double sided mirror tape, good for heated mirrors too). Give them a call and see if they'd sell you just the adhesive patches. 1-888-253-2593

Another option would be to silicone the mirror onto the plastic backing that the mirror originally sat on.
My advise, whatever you do, take off that plastic mirror backing and remove any and all adhesive material from it before you try to re-glue. When I did mine I actually used a putty knife to remove mirror from plastick back and then sanded the mirror tape off the plastic back.

To release backing from mirror assembly, turn that round part behind the mirror backing.
