Squid Reverse Proxy Cache Question

I'm using Squid as a reverse proxy cache (accelerator mode). I need to force / reguire HTTPS (SSL) but I'm having some problems. If a request comes in to Squid on HTTP I need to redirect this request at the browser to HTTPS. Before Squid this was done in the web code. The code would check for https and port 443 and if not found redirect the browser to https. The reason we can't do this anymore is that HTTPS traffic now stops at Squid. Traffic from Squid to the web server is HTTP, so the check can not be done. I've tried a Squid redirector and that seems to just cause an endless loop back to Squid. Thanks for any help.
