How does one adjust the 'floppyness' of the fairing mounted mirrors on the Ducati Sport Classic 1000S.

There is an internal spring within the stalk that somehow needs to be tensioned ?

It may help to know exactly what vehicle you are asking about. It's a little bit vague at the moment.

How do I fix the loose internal rear view mirror on a ford explorer? It's drooping after I adjust it each time.

if you look in the area were the mirror arm attaches to mount on the window you will see a holding screw that is probably loose and needs to be snugged up.

How do I replace the drivers side mirror assembly?

Remove the inside trim and undo the mounting screws. Suggest you do not try to adjust the internal parts of the mirror because it is inevitable to mirror will not want to go back into its designed position. Better to find a replacement unit

I havbe a 1997 town car signature series that the rear view mirror is loose on. I'm looking for step by step instruction on how to tighten the mirror so it is tight again.

They make the mirrors with several styles of fasteners. Usually there is a screw "plug" called a set screw. This usually has a Hex shaped recess in the part and you simply insert a Hex key and lightly snug the set screw by turning it clockwise like most screws you would be tightening.

The reason I said "lightly" is that the part that is on the windshield is glued on. They are forever coming detached from the windshield. So reefing on the set screw will probably cause the glue to fail. It is better to have to tighten the mirror several times a year than to have to get a glue kit and remount the base to the windshield.

There is also a mount which depends on a spring tab beneath the mirror to lock the assembly in place. If you have this type of mount, it is not adjustable. But you might be able to put a drop of glue on the surface seam to take out the rattle and the mirror should no longer vibrate.

I hope my info helps you.

If by the spring you mean where the mirror attaches your in luck. New replacement mirrors, and just the glass part, are readily available from auto parts stores. The mirror is easily mounted using a special glue also obtained at the same store. Just clean the surface of the "spring" well with acetone, apply the glue and mirror as instructed. Good luck.
