When mine fell off, I just glued it to the backing. It's been months and no issues. Just make sure you use glue that can withstand freezing and high heat temperatures. Some people use silicone instead of glue.

I would scrape off and remove any pre-existing glue before applying to new mirror in order to ensure that the mirror adheres to the rest of the car.

www.genuinesaab.com and yes it will work if it's a heated mirror. The mirror itself is not heated, the backing it mounts to has the heating element.
