02 Lincoln Driver Side Mirror Loose, How To Tighten

My 82 year old mom scraped the drivers side mirror against the side of the garage pulling it in. The mirror glass part popped out but was easy to snap back on.
The problem is the painted mirror housing that is attached to the door came part way out of the rubber around it. I tried to get it back in the rubber but it won't go. Is there a screw on the front part or what holds this housing in place? A diagram would be perfect. Well, thanks if you have an answer for this.

There is a soft metal backing on the mirror mount that is bent out of shape - in order to get it right you must remove the door panel. Once the door panel is off you will be able to see the three mounting bolts for the mirror - remove them, once removed you will be able to take it off to straiten the metal

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.

The glass in the driver side rear view mirror is loose. how do you tighten it up?


The driver and passenger side mirrors have a small rubber plug in the bottom center of the mirror housing. Remove the plug and there is a phillips head screw holding the mirror assembly. Tighten this screw about 1/8 turn and it will keep the mirror from moving around. If you remove the screw you can remove the mirror and drive motors. Use a bit of thread-lock to keep the screw from loosing again. Reinstall the rubber plug.

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 right side view mirror.


My mirror got knocked off by a deer running into the side of my car.

I mixed up some five minute epoxy and put it into the male and female joints that connect the mirror to the car. Hold it on tight without movement, for ten minutes and you are done.

Driver Side 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
