i feel your pain going down the highway and look over at your side mirrors and all you see is your tire and the raod going by. i just forget it. I have a 97 TJ and i dont have any screws or anything to tighten mine. I think im just going to stop being a tightwad and buy new mirrors. But if anyone knows how to make them work your a pure genius!
Hey you with all the bling bling and 22's HUMM this...O|||||||O Its A JEEP Thing!
I haven't tried this, but it seems like it might work... try getting some teflon tape (plumbing dept at the hardware store) and wedging it between the bracket and the pin that inserts into the bracket by wrapping it and forcing it down. You will also have to do it to the mirror and the pin this time forcing it up. If your rubber is good it will cover any tape that shows. See if that works, if not - teflon tape was cheap!
I had the same problem and was about to pull them off when I found the screws on the bottoms of my mirrors. Mine were phillips head screws right next to the point where the mirror meets the swivel. Otherwise, JC Whitney sells brackets and mirrors that attach to the Windshield hinges for those with softdoors... They come in stainless steel or black.
Ok I found the adjustment screws, very hard to find... however...they seem to be as tight as they can go. Do you think they could be worn, what if I tried some new screws... other than that I like the glue idea...
Now that you found the scews, did you try to reverse them, to loosen them up first? Don't remove them, just see if you can loosen them a little, spray some lubricant on them, and then try to re-tighten.
