    Designed obsolescence. Use it and throw it away.

    72 Chevy truck mirror; head is stainless, base is chrome pot metal. I tried a heat gun and it didn't faze the mirror or the silicone. It has a lip around the mirror, the glass is recessed in the stainless mirror head.

    If you don't want to break it, try using a fine wire to saw through the silicon/adhesive. There are not many/any solvents that will attack silicone that won't ruin the mirror assembly. Heat could also screw up the base as most of them are plastic. Bob

    Need to remove glass from mirror

    Anyone know of something that will dissolve or soften silicone? The mirror on my 72 truck rusted inside and the head just flops around. I need to remove the glass so I can repair it. I tried soaking it in lacquer thinner, but it didn't do anything. I ran a knife blade around the edge of the glass and it looked like silicone that came out.
Working...
