Side View Mirrors

I have the 2 piece side view mirrors. The top part on both sides vibrates not quite the point where they are usless but still very annoying. I am wondering how to remove them (the top mirror pieces) and try to tighten them. I do believe there are just some clips that hold them in place but I dont want to destroy the mirrors trying to tighten them up.

Check top housing by hand first. Might just be the housing is loose. Can't tell what brand you have but most have a set screw in the bottom/angle bracket.

There should be a set screw at the bottem of the mirror whenre it meets the arm. first make sure you have the mirror set where you want it then tighten the set screw.

A piece of "Blue Tack" can stop the vibrations temporarily.

The actual mirror (glass piece) should be adhered to the metal mechanisim by 3M double sided tape and unless it is loose, will be VERY hard to remove. I would start with the cause of the vibration, not the result...

Have the tires balanced and check out the suspension for loose components.

Whadda guy....why dint I think of that?.

But seriously......
I think the mirror (the top unit and not the concave one on the lower part) are adhered to a backer plate and the plate has clips on it that clip on the inside somehow. I am wondering if anyone had ever gotten the mirror off and if so how did you do it?

I just had this exact problem..... I adjusted the mirror all the way to one side, gave me just enough room to see behind. The top clip and outside clip had popped off the rib that they snap over. I put a flat bar behind the pivot just to give something to push against. Very carefully pushed the mirror until the clip popped back over rib. Just push on the mirror only where it's backed by the framework. A new replacement mirror is probably around 75 bucks so be gentle. Good Luck!

cmpncrsaider,

Thanks for the reply. I am wondering if, in my case, the clips on the mirror might be loose. I will take a look using the method you suggested and if the mirror clips are all on, I will wait until I winterize the coach to try removing the mirrors to adjust the clips.

If not resolved, go to Velvac Lots of good downloadable info on mirrors; installation, glass replacement etc.
