If it is loose in the head, replace it. If it is loose where it mounts, take the trim panel off and tighten the screws.

To tighten a loose side view mirror on a 2002 F150, take out the old screw and screw in a slightly larger one. It is also possible to tighten the mirror by using plumber's tape around the original screw.

Pop off the plastic cover on the back of the mirror. Then release the mirror by sliding the mirror forward. Then you can see the mirror bracket and the loose screws. Tighten the screws and replace the mirror. It takes about 2 seconds when you know what your looking for!

The only way to tighten the rear view mirror on a Vauxhall Corsa is to replace the base. It is glued onto the window and gluing a new one or re-gluing the old one is the only way to fix a loose mirror.

there should be a screw on the mounting plate for your mirror. most of then are a hex head bolt the just holds the mirror to the mounting plate. look at where the mirror connects to the windshield, that's where the bolt should be.

Remove the mirror trim panel ( inside - Triangular piece lined up w/ the outside mirror)...pop/pry this out .....Their should be three bolts.....tighten them if they are loose....If that does not fix it then remove the 3 bolts and if you have power mirrors unplug the connector as well ......then see if the if anything is bored out or mis-threaded! hope this helps

To repair a loose folding side view mirror on a 1998 Toyota 4Runner, slip a matchbook cover into the gap where it is loose. Any piece of cardboard will work. A person can also take the mirror off and secure the screw with plumber's tape if it is loose at the screw.
