Good evening everybody,
after a season during which I had some welding and painting done on my car and replaced the rear chrome bumper I’m getting back to some minor things that keep bothering me, one of them being the vibration - or rather shaking - of my driver’s side rear view mirror.
My car is equipped with the elegant stainless gooseneck mirrors, not the more boxy ones equipped with remote control.
There is a base plate, the goose neck and finally the mirror part connected with a ball joint. I can handle the ball joint connection the friction of which is controlled by the large nut. The shaking of the driver’s side mirror is caused by a loose connection of the goose neck to the base plate. The passenger’s side mirror is tight and doesn’t shake, so I suppose that a better fit is possible.
Short from opening up the door and getting access from inside the door - does anybody know whether the fit of the goose neck part is adjustable by design or - if not - can be manipulated by some bending, squeezing in washers etc. in the first place?
Any idea welcome
