2002 Forester L
I recently bought an 02 Forester L with power (non-heated) side door mirrors. Both of them had electrical tape around the mirror mount area where the housing can be swiveled back. I assumed the plastic was broken but when I took the tape off I found both mirrors missing whatever is supposed to be in there to pull the mirror down onto the mount. It looks like some kind of spring should be there but there is nothing; just a shaft that goes up into the body of the mirror and the mirror will just flop around. I searched for quite a while all over the internet and can't find any information on how to fix this or even a diagram to show what is supposed to be there. I just can't imagine having to replace the entire mirror assembly for this... Any help would be much appreciated... I want to fix this as the electrical tape doesn't look too elegant.
