A lose rear veiw mirror 99 s10


If its the windshield mirror, gm usually uses a phillips or torx head screw to tighten the mirror to the base, which is glued to the glass with a special adhesive. If the screw is tight and it's the mirror joints that are loose, replace the mirror. If it's the door mirror, the inner trim on the door needs to be removed to tighten the mounting bolts. If the outside foldaway joint is loose, you will probably need to replace the complete mirror.

Passenger side mirror is loose, how do i tighten it?


If the mirror housing is loose where it attaches to the door panel, you will probably have to remove the inner (inside the car) door panel to gain access the 2 or 3 nuts or bolts that secure the housing to the door and tighten them.

Hello, to replace the rear mirror, try the following:

1. Roll the passenger side door window all the way down. Turn off the ignition and remove the keys.
