wing mirror problem

Hi guys,

Here's an odd one. Yesterday as I pulled out of my garage one of the wing mirrors fell off. Not the whole assembly, just the mirror glass. It was undamaged when I picked it up, so I assume that I can just glue it back, But my question is "what glue to use"? I asked at the local dealer, but they were baffled "...it comes a complete unit, we don't glue anything".

Given that the mirrors are permanently heated when the car is running, the glue has to be able to withstand I guess 80degF to 90degF or thereabouts. Any suggestions? Will good old superglue do the trick?

As an aside, I've always wondered why the mirrors are permanently heated when the car is running - any ideas?

Thanks
D
