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.

Fix 4runner drivers side mirror


The mirror assmebly is broke and will need to be replaced. From what you have described ( Year, make, model, and engine size old help) the two parts have extended beyond there intended limits. Once they have seperated they typicalky do not go back together. You can get a used one from a salvage yard (least expensive), a new aftermarket one from a parts store (a little more costly nd may not fit exactly right), or you can get one from your local dealer ( usually the most expensive but the fit will be right on) Let me know if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer them. Thank you for using FixYa.com!

Go to your local auto parts store, they should be able to order just the mirror glass. Its held on with double sided tape and a little glue, you will have to scrape the old glass off with a flat screwdriver or similar.

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.
