    Many thanks for all your suggestions I bit the bullet and managed to get the top case off the wing mirror which revealed that the spring that keeps the joint tight had worked its way up its shaft. I turned it with some pliers and it clicked back into place replaced cover so far so good.

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!

How to replace rear view mirror


Instructions
1


Disconnect your negative battery cable, if your Ford Focus has power side mirrors. If it has manual side mirrors, disconnecting the battery is unnecessary.

2


Pry off the wing mirror's inside sail panel (shaped like a triangle). Insert a trim panel tool between the door skin and the plastic panel to pry it off.





3


Carefully pull the sail panel away, minding the wiring if the mirror is power-operated. Unplug the electrical harness and set the panel aside.

4


Open the door and hold the outside part of the wing mirror steady. Remove the mounting bolt with a socket wrench, and then remove the mirror screw with a Phillips screwdriver (the mirror bolt and screw is visible with the panel removed).

5


Pull the wing mirror assembly from its mount (from the outside). Insert the replacement mirror assembly in place; tighten the bolt and the screw.

6


Attach the wiring connection to the replacement mirror. Position the sail panel in place and push it against the door to snap it back on.

Wing_Mirror_Problems


Shaun,
I've never had to disassemble a Jeep power mirror. One of two possible problems here. Depends on how Jeep conveys the power to the "wing". If they use brushes and contacts, it may just be that the brushes got dirty when you folded it in [onto a corroded contact area] If this is the case, spray some penetrating oil into the gap between the wing and the base. Then fold and unfold the wing several times to clean the contact. Make sure that you have the wing pulled all the way out. There should be a detent that you can feel.
If they use a wiring harness going up all the way inside the wing, one of the wires has broken. you would need to remove the mirror, disassemble it and repair the damaged wiring.

Please describe how to replace a 2004 focus wing mirror


You have to remove the sail cover that's on the opposite side of the mirror. It is held on by just some plastic lips on the edges. Pry off carefully. There is one speed nut at the very front of the mirror and one large nut in the center. That's it. Don't drop the big nut into the door panel.

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.

2008 Ford Fusion Wing Mirror Replacement


I checked Ford Focus mirror replacement and it seems to be the same. This is for the manual, unheated mirror.

Remove the mirror cover inside the door - slide a screwdriver behind the cover and pry loose carefully.

Remove the single 10mm bolt and the mirror comes free.
NB. Do not drop the bolt into the door.
