Never with any car but one and it was 30 seconds after a new sound system installation...a very loud one which was many years ago and is no longer anything I care to do again, local glass shop can fix it for $15-$20 and it won't ever come off again in case you want it fixed faster and easier than dealing with your studio. (Unless yours is really close, mine is not so I'd rather fix it myself for a small issue, still I'd call them about it though)

You have a good point! I will call a local glass company. I'll spend $20 in gas just to go to the dealer so this makes more sense. Thanks!

Just don't get the AutoZone or Advance or other type repair crap, it is a waste of money and the stuff they use at the glass shops sets almost instantly and the bond is insane, def beats the long drive to the dealer to me.

Sorry to hear of your early issues with your new Fiat. It's unusual that the rear view mirror fell off; either it was not applied correctly or the adhesive did not cure. Going to the dealer is the right route. Let me know if I can be of any further assistance.

It's fixed. 5 minutes and $5 at my local glass shop. Sent from my Autoguide iPhone app
Nice! Much better than having to drive all the way out to the dealer and assuming they used adhesive like my shop you'll only remove that mirror by destroying the surrounding glass from here on out.

Thanks for the reply! I live 2 hours from my nearest dealer so I made the decision to have this done local. On my next visit I will inform the service manager if the issue so he is aware it happened. Thanks again!

Excellent! Im glad to hear that it was fixed so quickly and for just 5 bucks... I was going to suggest that the adhesive is inexpensive and that you could probably apply it yourself, but if its clearly a manufacture's defect, Im required to send you to the dealer... Im sure you understand...

Have a great day..
