Personally, I don't like the dealer TSB solution of cutting a slot at the bottom of the mirror gasket. It still allows as much water to enter the housing as before, and now must rely on gravity and dehydration to slowly dry up the inside of the housing. What I have done is simply apply black silicon sealant to both the inside and outside edges of the gasket, leaving the area at the bottom which would have been notched by Acura instructions, free of silicon instead, and re-assembled. No more water in, therefore, no more water dripping out. Silicon doesn't stick very well to metal and paint, so if it becomes necessary to remove the mirror, the silicon will peel right off the surfaces without damage to the foam/rubber gasket.Lowe5 said:We've got a bad case of weeping mirrors in our 2001 MDX. We can't seem to get rid of the stain (our water isn't even hard) with soap and water. Has anyone found something to remove the stain without damaging the paint/finish?
Thanks for your help!!
