Rear view mirror convex mirror loose.

Good morning,
Noticed the passenger side mirror bottom side which is the convex portion is loose. I can't really see how its mounted inside the housing of the mirror to be able to fix it. On our motorhome its the lower portion as I mentioned which is not remote controllable.
Does anyone know the manufacturer of the mirrors or possibly have a link? Maybe there will be a breakdown diagram of the mirror.
Appreciate any help. Thanks, Keith

They are probably made my Velvac. The part number is usual stuck on the bottom of the mirror housing if you look up.

And, they are stuck on with serious 3M two sided tape. Probably available at an automotive paint shop.
If you break it, it's $21-23 dollars + shipping from Velvac but tape comes with it

Okay, figured it out. Pried the mirror out a little and could see that it was just double sided tape holding it on just as H Miller said. Went up to Lowe's and got some 3M indoor/outdoor 2 sided tape, Cleaned the old tape off with some adhesive remover then alcohol, placed new tape on the mirror housing and peeled the other side and stuck the mirror back on.
Hope it holds as the mirror is quite expensive per Mike Canter.
Thanks to the two of you for the reply.
Wish all the motorhome fixes went that easy.

You used the correct tape. 3m double sided and it should have had a red film you have to peel off. Never use the white foamy tape on the exterior. That same 3m tape is used for auto trim. I always have a roll in the moho. "Oops" is also a good product to remove old adhesive and loosens the tape you are replacing. Won't damage finishes. Off topic but try to keep your tape in a plastic bag. Keeps adhesive from drying out. This applies to all tape, especially masking.

Repaired my mirrors on the road (a couple of years back) by using Velcro. I always keep a length of this stuff on board. Velcro allowed me to reposition one of the mirrors that I didn't quite get "just right" when I pressed the mirror back in place. Which is to say: I got a "do-over" without breaking the mirror!
