For further information on reinstalling the mirror to the frame please read this
In the last 6 or 7 years, we have been selling a lot of mirrors that the glass has fallen out of the frame for no reason. One of the biggest problems cars has been the Saab 93 95. There are another 20 or 30 makes and models that has had this problem in recent years. There is a special way to re glue this mirror properly if you have a heating element option. For some reason, the manufacture of this product used a double sided tape pad, but the main culprit with mirrors with heating elements is the use of spray adhesive onto the black pad. Behind this black pad is a heating element. If you have this situation, please refer to the installation of Installing a Electro chromatic self dimming mirror installation. It is the same principle. By dotting the glue, as explained next to the item description, your mirrors heating function will work much better than just globing the glue onto the frame. It will disperse the heat from the element that is behind the black pad. The silicone that we sell is perfect in adhering this mirror properly. I have enclosed a picture of a mirror that the glass fell out of the frame, that had the black pad, and the heating element is behind the black pad. Again. Do not remove this black pad. Its very important that you clean the black pad of any residue from the old mirror. It contains an adhesive an mirror residue that the silicone may not bond to. To do this you can use a wet rag with a small amount of nail polish remover. Remove the debris off the black pad. Do not try to scrape it off because you may damage the heating element behind the pad. Then Glue the black pad by dotting the pad with the silicone every 1/4 x 1/4 inch 1/2 inch from the frame edge. The same way you would the self dimming mirror. What this does is disperse the heat from behind the black pad, which is a heating element evenly to your new mirror. This way your Saab 9-3, 9-5's heating element will work properly, and don't forget to tape the mirror down using masking tape. Also, there was a problem on both sides. When ordering a Drivers side Saab Mirror, check the passenger side, or vice versa. Yes...that mirror is ready to fall out as well. You can do this by gently pushing on the mirror or getting a pen cap and get it underneath the mirror edge and pull on it. If you notice it starting to move, then go in a clock wise or counter clockwise around the frame lip, but be prepared for it to fall into your hand and out of the frame. I strongly suggest when ordering this mirror, you should order the glue as well. Our silicone will bond to the black pad permanently by using the system stated above. Although the spec's of the glue is a non latex silicone. If you have this product in your house, then by all means you do not need to order it from us. The other name for the automotive silicone is construction silicone and can be purchased at any hardware store, normally located in the paint department.
