My name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question had not received a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.

In some cases if you can get the housing off you can check and locate the loose or damaged components and tighten or replace the affected component to resolve this issue.In most cases the entire mirror assembly will need replaced though as sometimes it is not an option to dissasemble and repair.If you need info to see if this can be taken apart for repair instead of replacing it let me know and I will locate more info on this here.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service,your 5 star rating is appreciated.You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question.Keep in mind in some cases it can be difficult to fully diagnose or help repair your vehicle without seeing it and I work on delivering the best possible answer from what I see to work with.

Thanks Pete
