My car (Fiesta) - drivers mirror is the type that is on a spring so if you
drive into something it springs backwards.
The owner before me (!) hit something a bit harder than the spring could
handle and so now its broken. Basically it kidn of hooked on in 2 places,
the stronger of the hooks is broken but the mirror still holds into place
(and the electric controls work)
Now my mechanic suggested either replacing (way too expensive) or sticking
it into place with a screw (not ideal)
The first time I had the problem the mirror just fell off but was held
dangling in place by a wire. I used some superglue which held it in place
for a good few months
It came off again today, so I am thinking of using soem superstrong glue
that you apply with those guns
Idea is if I squirt enough inbetween the old fixings the glue will get
strong enough to hold them in place. Its a bot hard to describe but if I can
get enough glue in there (superglue is too liquidy) then when it sets it
will actually wrap around the old fixing and hold everythign in place
Anyway, the long and short of it is, which types/brands of glue are the best
to use for plastic to plastic?
I dont really care if it damages the plastic (as superglue does) because its
all internal. But I wonder what is the difference between solvent and non
solvent in this scenario?
something from here:
I like the gun idea because i can then just squit in lots, which is hard to
do with superglue.
