Has anyone else had this happen?
It must be a common thing because I easily found the replacement mirror on eBay for 26 bucks.
What's the best way to install the new glass so it doesn't fall off again?

Dunno - it's not something that's common. Did the entire mirror (backing and mechanism) go missing?

One thing BMW motorcycle owners used to do when one model had a habit of chucking mirrors was to use some fishing filament line attached to the back of the mirror and anchored inside the mirror housing to keep the glass from disappearing entirely. Of course, on a car, you do risk dinging up the sides of the car if it falls out at speed and is tethered to the mirror housing.

no the glass mirror is missing like it just came unglued. There is a non sticky rubber surface that looks like it was a 2 sided tape that failed on the mirror side. The mirror still works as far adjusting it electronically from the door switch. I don't know if someone just pulled it off to **** with me
