Default Interior Rear View Mirror Noise

I have searched the forum for similar issues and am not sure if what I am finding directly addresses my issue. I found one post regarding an interior rear view mirror noise on an 04 Forester, and am not sure if the assembly is the same. To boot, I am not clear on the fix. My Forester is an '09 (FYI)

My Problem: Over the last month or so, there has been a 'clicking' noise coming from my rear view mirror. It seems as though the cold weather has created some sort of change to the wire going to the mirror. When I wiggle the wire or touch where the wire inserts into the mirror I hear a similar noise.

Has anyone had a similar issue and can give a description of the fix?

Thanks for the help!

Thanks for the reply. I am not exactly Mr. Handy. Where is the torx screw located?

Look at the bottom and it is where the mirror slides to the mount that is glued to the windshield. It will be on the only screw on the adjustable arm mounted to the mirror.
