Loose mirror

I am having an issue of the right side mirror moving about at the point where the mirror is attached to the body mount. The arm does have a spring mechanism that allows the mirror to fold against the body. This is tight.
Is there a way to remove the mirror, or any other suggestions are welcome?!

This a duh moment. Google can find anything. Found manufacturer, how to mount it and there it was. A set screw. Sure enough, it was loose.

Those are the best kind of problems, one that can be solved easily after searching. Worked often for me and I'll be it work for me again.

That's happened to us during a trip once as well. Of course we couldn't find our hex set until we arrived home! I agree with others it's nice to be able to fix a few things without the assurance of others.

This is a reoccurring problem on my coach, I'm planning to replace that set screw one day with a bolt of equal size. Factory set screw is a POS, and looks home made, badly home made.
