Re: the fan is hitting the engine
If its mounted on the water pump (not an electric fan), chances are that the pump shaft bearings have failed. If so, you need to replace the pump NOW before it comes loose and damages more stuff!!! If it's electric, mounted on radiator, check for missing support bolts or broken supports.

Grab the fan blade and move it forward and backwards. If it is hitting something it will be fairly loose. Also check wiring harnesses, they can come loose and hit the fan blade. After that start listening under the car. Bad bearings/rod knock.
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.
Hi Cro,Seems to me as if you may have a problem with your water pump. If your vehicle is loosing coolant, that will confirm it. With the engine off and the key removed from the ignition open the hood and check for any looseness in the water pump by taking hold of the fan blades and shaking back and forth (If they're plastic be careful not to apply to much force, or you may break them!). If there is play you'll need a replacement pump!Best regards Johngee10
Now its a couple of things that may be wrong...1 is your waterpump may be bad, and the shaft is wobbling back and forth...2. it could be your fan clutch...or 3. it just maybe the fan blade itself..sometimes they wear out, because they are made up of plastic...however you can easliy see that, and move it around..and make sure all the bolts are tight..
So. check the waterpump, by tring to shake the fan up and down and side to side, and see if the shaft move, then its the waterpump...the clutch really wont give you too much play, it just wont spin as fast, with the engine running, Or the blade..basically it will look like its fallen off....
needs a tuneup depending on year there are egr valve and several other valves that could cause it to run bad/. As for the fan hitting the fan shroud try wiggling the fan back and forth to see it its loose, if it is watch to see what is wiggling, the water pump shaft or the fan blade device that spins free so that it's not making so much noise i forget the name at the moment but most cars have them and it fits on the water pump and the, oh yes fan clutch. If that is ok then the rear transmission mount may be bad or it is common that the fan shrouds come loose on the bottom.
Sorry you did finish you sentence. Grab the fan blade (engine off of course) and see if you can move it back and forth. A lot of play may be a bad and knocking fan clutch. Or a worn out water pump. Move it if you can and see where the play is coming from.
