I know it's not EV related but someone might have had this happen to them and I am keen to find a tried+tested fix

Driving along, notice the driver side mirror glass looks like it's shaking - check that to the left and that one is fine.
Then it starts to move on its own showing me the sky instead of what's behind, still shaking.
Pulled into a bus lay-by, down with the window and discovered it was loose at the side edge ... then that it was fully loose and it simply came in to my hand.
30seconds later and it might have hit the road.

Is this a good time for "no more nails" ? I have a feeling pritt-stick or a smidge of bluetack won't do it.

My old GTE did this, and a few others on here had the same IIRC, except mine hit the road.

My replacement eBay sourced mirror glass came with 3M double sided sticky foam on the back, just peeled it and stuck it to the flat black plastic mirror holder.

It’s the black plastic bit that’s heated, and it cleared just as quick as the OEM nearside mirror glass, which as you’ve found is just stuck on anyway.
