are you talking about the cables that move the mirror or the way it is attached to the vehicle if its the cables you will need to replace them intirely if its attached to vehicle part then there is a cover on the interior of vehicle either with screw in it or snaped into place remove that cover and then tighten bolts there is two to three bolts or nuts to be tightened
If its the windshield mirror, gm usually uses a phillips or torx head screw to tighten the mirror to the base, which is glued to the glass with a special adhesive. If the screw is tight and it's the mirror joints that are loose, replace the mirror. If it's the door mirror, the inner trim on the door needs to be removed to tighten the mounting bolts. If the outside foldaway joint is loose, you will probably need to replace the complete mirror.
OK. Just to make it clear it was the mirror vibrating on the swivel not vibrating on the door. I went to the store and purchased a package of those plastic "velcro" pieces. I turned the mirror in towards the door and cut a piece of the plastic big enough to fit under the mirror so it wasn't sticking out when I slide the mirror back into place. Took the backing off the plastic velcro piece and stick it to the mirror stand under where the mirror would rotate back to normal. The plastic acted as a shim and the mirror does not shack anymore. I tried to take the plastic piece off the mirror to see if there was any screws I could tighten but it looked like the mirror swiveled around a post and could not be tightened. Any why, this did the trick. I hope this will help others.
There should be a small set screw on the side of the metal pad that tightens against the mirror to keep it from wobbling. It may be loose or missing. It takes a very small allen wrench to tighten the set screw. If tightening the screw doesn't stop the wobbling, you can loosen it far enough to slide the mirror up and out of the bracket. Slide the other mirror into the bracket and tighten the set screw.
With my 4 runner, I had the same problem. All I needed to do was use a phillips head screw driver and tighten up a screw that is underneath the mirror housing. i.e. there is a screw hole on under side of the hosing for the mirror. Find that hole and tighten (it may seem tight already, but just give it a little bit more torque and see if that helps)
Hi, if the complete unit is loose you will find bolts on the inside of the door just above the door panel behind a cover (usually a triangular shaped cover), that you will have to tighten. If the mirror glass is loose you should find a hole underneath the mirror housing where you have to put a screw driver in and tighten the screw on the inside to secure the glass.
Most mirrors have a removable cover just on the inside of the door. If you look closely where the mirror meets the door on the inside should be a snap in place cover or three screw holes with snap in covers that you remove and then use a screwdriver or small socket wrench to tighten the screws or bolts.
