Its always such a hassle when you break your Volvo 240 side view mirror. I myself have hit many a mailbox in my day that cracked the car mirror or the mirror assembly. Lots of people think they have to go to the Volvo dealership to get the whole assembly. In some cases you have to, but most of the time its just the glass itself that is broken. Why spend $550.00 dollars and up to have it replace the assembly by the dealer or a when you can fix it yourself easily and affordably.

Did you ever notice the Volvo 240 passenger side mirror always has the "objects are closer" text on the mirror. This mirror is designed this way to increase your field of vision and to eliminate the blind spot problem. Its always a good thing to replace that with a convex mirror glass verses a normal mirror. Don't substitute this as one day it might save your life.

An Volvo glass only side view mirror is made of 2.2mm 1st surface mirror properties. This mirror is actually translucent. Meaning that light will travel through and absorb the light from the car behind you at night. USA Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Code 571.111 require this mirror to absorb 40 to 60 percent of light and convex mirror with a specific bend. However during the day during, the mirror is 100% reflective. We only sell mirrors that conform with DOT standards. Our mirrors are made in the USA, and all comply to US Standards. Beware of the 9 dollar mirror that you are seeing on sale these days on the internet, as these mirrors might not conform to USA standards. Car or Truck mirrors should be installed using the car mirror to a plastic frame plate. Without this plastic frame the glass has nothing to rest into the car mirror housing. We do not suggest the use of normal bathroom silicone adhesive, which everyone has laying around at somewhere in their house or apartment. Latex type silicone does not adhere well to glass, but does to the plastic frame. We suggested using a construction silicone which is non latex based. If you don't have any then get a small tube at your local hardware store, or order the tube online with us.

How to remove and replace your car mirror from the frame

Now how do you remove that old Volvo 240 mirror to get the new one in. Well, you first must breakdown the mirror from the plate called a frame. One simple way to do this is to get a flat strong instrument like a wide screw driver or a automotive scraper. Not many of you have the scraper, but when you go to our order form page we could sell you one. Its a nice thing to have around your toolbox. Now to loosen the adhesive from the plate you must apply some heat. Ideally a propane torch is good, but if you have the wife's hairdryer or a heat gun that will also work. Heat up the mirror enough so that the adhesive behind the Volvo mirror will loosen get the screwdriver, putty knife, or the scraper under the mirror and pull all the broken pieces off the frame. Make sure you are wearing gloves and protective eyewear, oh, and its also a smart idea to put a small garbage bucket under the housing you are working on, so that the glass falls into the bucket and not on the ground. After the side view mirror glass is removed, make sure all the mirror and adhesive is clean off the framed plate.

Once you have removed your Volvo 240 side view mirror from the frame, you now need to apply the glue to the black frame. First thing to do is clean the glass with water. Do not use glass cleaner or any chemical related cleaner. Apply the glue outward so it extends past the lip of the frame. I call this the snow cone effect. Glue it in 5 spots. One in the middle and 4 in the middle corners. Don't get too close to the frames edge, as it will ooze out of the frame, making a mess. If you order the silicone from us or have purchased a tube, cut a 3/8 inch diameter from the tip. Use Large dabs of the adhesive 3/8" inch wide by 1/2" outwards. Remember you are not installing a windshield that requires a strong adhesive. Once you have adhered the mirror to the plate, get some easily removable tape, like masking tape, and tape the mirror around the mirror housing so that the mirror will not slide off the frame. This will also allow you to drive. Keep the tape on for 24 hours for cold climates and 5 hours in warm until the glue dries.

Gluing a mirror that has fallen out of the frame for no reason.

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, Volvo S series, Volkswagen Passat and Jetta to name a few. There are another 20 or 30 makes and models that has had this problem in recent years. There are several factors causing this to happen. To find out more, ask our customer service reps while you have them on the phone. Most important, there is a special way to re glue this mirror to the frame attachment properly to make it bond, and if you have a heating element, it is an effective way for the heat from the element to transfer to the glass. For some reason, the manufacture of these products either used a small amount of double sided tape, used hot acrylic bonding to name a few.The main culprit with mirrors with heating elements we're the use of spray adhesive onto a 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 above, 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. Glue the black pad as explained.
