How to fix a loose wing mirror freelander


If it's loose from the door, you need to remove the inner door panel to access the screws that hold the mirror in place on the door itself. To remove the inner door panel may simply involve removing some screws, but some models require a special upholstery tool to loosen the panel fron the clips. Once the panel is loose, tighten the mirror and replace the inner panel. Be cautious with door switch wiring!

Tighten side mirror


If the mirror housing is loose and nothing has hit it and broken the mounting to the door frame, yes. If it is the glass part that is loose and it is a electric or manual mirror, something has damaged it behind the glass replacing it will fix problem.

A lose rear veiw mirror 99 s10


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.

Passenger side mirror is loose, how do i tighten it?


If the mirror housing is loose where it attaches to the door panel, you will probably have to remove the inner (inside the car) door panel to gain access the 2 or 3 nuts or bolts that secure the housing to the door and tighten them.

Power mirrors are loose, how do i tighten them?


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.

Driver side mirror loose how can i tighten it


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.

Replace passenger side electric mirror


On the inside trim, you can remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. Then you'll need to manipulate the panel and disconnect the door handle linkage from the door handle and disconnect the wiring for your controls. Then you can access the bolts that secure the mirror onto the door
