Rearview mirror button


Recommended Posts

The rearview mirror on our 79 SC Targa has been sagging off the windshield over the past few months. It finally fell off, so after spending quite a bit of time cleaning both the windshield and the back of the button (the piece that actually is glued to the windshield) we tried to stick it back on (after removing the mirror from the button to reduce the weight). First epoxy blend didn't adhere at all after 5 minutes, so we picked up another brand from the local parts store (both were rearview mirror specific epoxies). The second epoxy held the button up afer 5 minutes and we left the mirror off overnight to allow it to dry. The next day a small tug and shake confirmed the button was holding so we screwed the mirror back on. After returning from running errands for a few hours on a hot and humid day, the mirror was found laying behind the shifter.

The epoxy footprint left on the windshield shows it wasn't completely flat. Examining the back of the button there are what appear to be 4 strips of black rubber attached to the side that mounts to the windshield. It is definitely not flat, which is what we suspect is causing the issues.

Does anyone know the part number for the rearview mirror button? I can see a number stamped on the mirror but nothing on the button.
