Hello and welcome to Just, Super mechanic here. About your vehicle.

Is the swivel part loose? (doesn't stay adjusted)

Customer: replied 6 years ago.

Expert:  Jerry replied 6 years ago.
They don't have any set screws in them though, to help to keep them tight(er), I often times wish that they did. We normally replace the mirror assembly when they get loose.


Using a trim tool, carefully remove the headliner cap (A) by releasing the hooks (B). Take care not to scratch the cap and headliner (C).


  1. Remove the screws, then remove the rearview mirror (A).
  2. Install the mirror in the reverse order of removal.
