My exterior shell is fine, but the mirror will not stay adjusted flops around, seems to be missing parts that keep it from doing this

Hi there,

 

Maybe a dumb question, but have you checked to see if you have the essential phillips screw that holds the mech to the body in place? If you have it, then how much can you tighten it up? That screw needs to be tightened up very strong to prevent any unnecessary mech movement.The ball and socket could be worn as well.

 

Also, to the best of my knowledge, you can't buy the mirror mechanism new complete on it's own. You have to buy the whole mirror mech and body as well in the one package.

This has been discussed before, you can tighten them, but it requires removing the mirror from the mechanism:

Sorry Don,

 

Didn't realize this one has been kicked around before in great detail.

I just did one. Push the mirror all the way over and use a long phillips. I did it and so can you. The only way to remove the mirror is to remove the screw.

OK read the thread,,, I had the inner assembly out,,, I am missing the 2 plastic bushings that go on the 2 pins that are on either side of the ball socket,,, the socket is also so loose that it just flops around,,, are those plastic bushings available?? I have looked and cant find them.

I doubt it, I suspect they are not a reproduced or common part. I don't think they are necessary, they limit movement, they don't provide tension. mine was very loose and got much worse when I added a convex mirror.

 

I just took it apart and removed the original mirror yesterday morning. I took a spring loaded center punch and used it around the three posts to punch the retaining rings downward. It tightened up nicely. Simple job

"I love my Hookers!" and "Get some Strange" probably have a different connotation to non automotive enthusiasts!

I just did the same thing and am going to order the convex mirror and put it on instead of mine which was cracked already and came apart while removing it

 

Thanks a bunch for the images and advice

I have a spare. Looks exactly like the above pictures. I'll do $20 including shipping.

 

Judge, That sounds great to me, PM sent,,, Knowing me I may end up messing mine up beyond repair
