Depending on the mirror you have, on the base there should be 2 or 4 small removable screw covers. This would give you access to the hold-down screws and you should be able to tighten them. If they are stripped for some reason, you may have to replace them with the next size larger screw, or use a bolt, with the nut inside the cap. Sometimes you can tighten the hole up a little for the regular screw using a couple of toothpicks or part of a plastic screw anchor in the hole for more grip. if there are no screw covers, it may be attached from inside the cap and would have to be tightened from there. Hope this may help, Happy Trails Bert

Ours were loose when we bought it so I tore into it thinking I could just tighten them up. Apparently this had been an issue before as there were golf tees stuck in the holes with screws along side. I drilled through and put stainless steel bolts with washers and lock nuts on the inside of the cap. No more loose mirrors.

On our 2006 Diplomat the driver side mirror became loose and we discovered that good ole Monaco used self-threading screws with a plywood block on the back side to hold the mirror. Of course over the years the wood became soft and the screws would not hold anymore. Our solution was to remove the self-threading wood bolts and drill all the way thru the wood block with a 1/4 inch drill. We found some carriage bolts that the head could be ground down to pull into the mirror mount. We used fender washers, lock washers, and a nut on the back to fasten the mirror. The back can be reached by pulling out the generator. If the Cayman does not have the generator on a slide access to the back of the mirror mount could be a problem. I see Cusn_Edy has a Cayman and managed to get to the rear of the mirror mount so maybe you don't have an access problem.

I epoxied in 1/4” nuts by drilling out the soft wood with a 1/2” drill. Put electrical tape on either side of the nut on a long 1/4” bolt so it was not glued in place by the 5 minute epoxy. Getting the angle of the bolt is important so do one at a time using the other 3 as guides. You may only need to do the top 2 as they hold most of the weight.
This post is my opinion, worth what you paid for it.
