I have no answer, but had a similar issue. I glued a couple of convex mirrors on my car (sticky back foam tape) but they were too small, so after a couple weeks I decided to remove them. First I tried spraying some WD-40 on the glass (recommended in some auto forum or something) which accomplished nothing.

Then I took the hair dryer out and carefully pried the stick-on mirror away from the real mirror. So far so good. Then I noticed that the mirror was completely fogged, which I figured was a grease (?) residue from the WD-40, and I set about cleaning that off with Windex, then with Iso alcohol, and there were still fog splotches, so I figured I'd ruined the mirrors or something.

Lo, the car sat in the garage for a couple days, and when I came back to it both mirrors were perfect.

I have no idea why, but I am very glad for it.
