I came across this website and the advice offered made sense. So I bought a tube of silicone RTV adhesive/sealant. I cleaned the heating element and the back of the mirror with lacquer thinners and dotted the heater pad as recommended. When you set the mirror on the pad, try to avoid transferring adhesive to the mirror surface. but if you do, Rainex will take it off tout suite!

So far so good. Gotta love a $6 fix!

Shipkiller - it rarely gets above 25degC in Vancouver, which explains why the wing mirror heaters are always on! :-)
