The driver side mirror is loose on my NBS, it has pwere folding and is heated with the turn signals. Its not the housing just the glass wobbles on rough roads. Can the glass be tightened? How can i fix this.

All 3 of my NBS with the power folding auto dim mirror vibrate. I think it is do to the heavier mirror. You know that the auto dim mirror has some kind of goop inside the glass, so it must be heavier then your normal mirror.

Place the mirror housing on a clean level surface. Push on the
outer edge of the mirror to manually pivot it fully outward so a
flat head screwdriver can be inserted under its inner edge
between the backplate and motor actuator. Gently twist and
pull on the screwdriver until backplate dislodges from motor
actuator. Repeat the process by moving the screwdriver
around until backplate unsnaps from motor actuator. NOTE: If
you have heated mirrors, disconnect the heater wires from
the heater terminals. The polarity on the heater terminals is
reversible so it is not necessary to label the terminals.
Remove OE mirror from mirror housing.

Ensure that the motors rubber boot is fitted snugly against the back of the mirror :imo

Tips for when you pop off the glass:
  • IIRC, the glass is mounted to a plastic plate with a little rim around it. Don't try to remove the glass from that thing.
  • Don't try to pry the glass/plate assembly at its edge. Get the screwdriver all the way to the center where the motor actuator is and twist it to get the glass/plate assembly to pop off.
