The mirror mounts on a small metal tab and is usually held to the tab by
a small setscrew. The tab is the part that is glued to the windshield.
I've heard of the bond of the mirror tab breaking off the glass, but
it's the first I've ever heard of the glass actually breaking. Are you
sure it's tyhe glass and not the glue that was previously used to hold
it? Look to see if the windshield has a pit or hole left behind.
Superglue will not hold it. You'll have to a get a new mirror "tab"
kit, which comes with the appropriate glue and then, if the glass
actually did chip glue the new tab in a slightly different location so
the chip is not under it.
Does she have a temper? ;-)
If it really did fall off by itself and the glass did come off with it I
would seriously look at replacing the windshield since it could be a hazard.
Check with your insurance company, it may be covered.
