I have a '97 Honda Civic, and the rear view mirror seems to be awfully loose. It isn't loose enough to move during normal driving, but if I have to flip the switch to "dim" the mirror, the mirror moves all over the place, and in effect, the dimming doesn't work.
Is there a way to tighten the rear view mirror so it doesn't wiggle around so much?
Re: Rear-view mirror loose - How to tighten (MikeDawg)
Ok I just had to do this on my '98 civic
* get something flat and GENTLY pry the plastic piece that is against the headliner CORNER on the front (towards windshield)
Now remove the (3) philips head bolts.
Now that you have the whole rear view mirror in you hands....... there is a black plastic piece that covers the mirror ball adjustment...... there is a place to put a flat blade screwdriver and pry the piece off....
Now you have access to the adjustment..... the small philips bolt will adjust (tighten/loosen) the mirror........ If you tighten all the way and it is still too loose..... take the flat plate off and BEING CAREFUL...... SLIGHTLY bend the metal.... REMEMBER slightly....
