bouncing mirror :(

768 Views 7 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  Guest
Is there anyway to stop my remote driver's side mirror from bouncing around? Just the mirror, everything is tight, but it won't stay in place, Maybe I shouldn't see what is coming up behind me??????

Also, who makes a good fake remote mirror for the passenger side?

JBWeld or duct's the solution to everything that moves that shouldn't...PBBlaster or WD-40 for things that should move but don't. me check your shorts! My multimeter is just a-waiting! Formerly known as Midlife in the old VMF.

Hey, My sister had the same problem with her 67 mustang, but what we did was took out the remote control one and put the standard one. The problem we had with the remote one is her hole face of the mirror kept falling down. We tried to have someone fix it but they ripped us off. By 2 days the side mirror was same as before.. So my view would be have the standard one put on and just have the hole covered. That's my two-cents. In the end it is up to you and I hope your car comes out absolute perfect.

What you've got there is a rare shaker mirror...

Yup, it shakes with the vibrations of the motor...

I had the same problem. It turned out that the remote control
at the bottom of the door panel was loose from the panel. The
fix was buying an assortment set of clip nuts from the HELP
section at autozone. Once I tighten the pair of nuts to the
backside of the cardboard door panel it was fixed.
