So a few months ago I was adjusting the rearview mirror of my 2001 530i and accidentally pulled too hard and broke it off. I taped it back on, been driving it like this ever since. It looks bad and also the tape never sticks fully, it's still loose.
Wondering if there's a way to repair it short of having a whole new windshield installed?
The metal piece that attaches onto the glass, it ripped some of the glass away with it. I tried to glue it back into place using 3000 lb. epoxy, but for whatever reason it didn't hold at all, it fell off again after I let it set according to the directions (I even cleaned it with solvent first).
Or will I have to get a whole new windshield?? Has this happened to anyone else reading this?
