    01 Virage-How do I tighten the mirror? (Bad Vibes)

    My left mirror has always had a vibration in it but seems to have gotten worse today, after I thought I tightened up the housing from inside the hood. Can I remove it by loosening the 3 bolts in that area, and if so, is there a way to tighten up the mirrored part that is vibrating like crazy?

    If they are anything like the mirrors on my SLT, the swivel portion that you want to tighten up can only be accessed by removing the glass. And when I say remove, I mean break.

    I have a pair of spare Virage mirror assemblies. Just spares on my shelf.

    I suppose I could sell one

    It is the swivel portion. It has been vibrating for years, but yesterday it was as if something really loosened up and now it's really chattering and loose to the point that I wondered if it wasn't going to fall off. If I have to break it to tighten it then maybe I'll try gluing something around the perimeter of the mirror or running a gob of silicone around it first to hold it in place and prevent the annoying vibration. I guess the trick will be to find something that will stay put/adhere with the constant water and heat????

    It cost me about $20 to get a new piece of mirror sized, cut, and installed from a local mirror shop......

    I went ahead and used the felt side of a piece of Velcro on the bottom and also siliconed it in place as well as the sides. I'll see how that works. If not and I just break out the mirror, what is behind there to tighten?

    Again, if it is like my SLT mirrors, there is a screw directly in the middle of where the mirror is installed that connects the swivel. the tighter the screw, the tighter the mirror... I made the mistake of thinking mine was too tight, and loosened it a bit before the glass was installed. Now it drifts.... Don't really use them much anyhow...

    I also have a pair of used Virage mirrors available.

    Modestly sun faded, but nothing a quick coat of Krylon Fusion Plastic Black paint wouldn't cover.
