How do I tighten my mirrors?

Both my left and right mirrors are folding in when i'm driving at high speeds! How do I tighten them from moving so much?

dicks.

I'm sorry that none of these jack holes took the time to even let you know or even have the decency to give you a courtesy reply.. I realized alot of the guys on this forum is kind of just like that, so I might move to another forum. Anyway, From what I know the mirros are suppose to be seal tight from the factory. You have to take it to the dealer to get the original part, it's not something you can use locktite and other crap with.

I hope this helped some what. Mine is getting alittle loose too on the left side, So i have to take it to the dealer.

If your model is 2008+, there should be a little foam cushion covering the Allen bolt that allows the mirror to swivel back and forth. Remove that piece and put it on a surface where you won't get dust on the sticky surface. Get an Allen wrench and tighten it enough that you won't strip it. After that, replace the foam cushion and it should be fixed.
