Hi everyone,

I have a 2005 Subaru Forester. I just noticed that the housing on the passenger side rear view mirror has a little play ( can move back and forth a little by a few degrees)...the drivers's side-no play at all. The motorized mirror works just fine. Just wondering if this is normal....

thank you

Access

Bobby,

thank you......

Do i push the mirror house towards the passenger door ( at about a 45 degree angle) to access the screws?

Forget moving the mirror, that was for another project I was working at the same time that I noticed the looseness. Look underneath tghe housing & you'll see 3 Phillips head screws. Tighten them & that should stop the excess movement. The screw nearest the door is a kinda hard to get at, but it can be done. :wink:

Many thanks!!

Bobby,

Thank you! Folllowed your suggestion and it was just the thing that was needed to correct the issue! ( I ended up using an offset screwdriver to get to the two phillip screws closest to the car door.)
