Mk7 mirrors are loose!

Recommended Posts

hi guys,

the wife's purchased a Fiesta MK7 and when i was washing her car i noticed the mirrors were loose. I opened the door and took the grommet off the reveal the torq screw and thought I'd tighten it but it was already very tight so couldnt so was hoping someone on here knows of a fix?

Also, the mirror caps appear to come off very easily and they are a pain in the derrier to put back on.

The mirror caps are usually a bit of a nightmare to take off

 

And the plastic trim can occasionally feel loose but it should clamp down a bit once the nuts tightened 

 

Which part is loose?

When your removed the grommet, did you check the little pins that locate it are in place? Failing that, take the nut off, whack a washer on the inside of it and tighten again, see if it takes up the slack 

 

Possibly had the mirrors replaced with non genuine ones

now i did not know there are locating pins. i shall have a look at this. 

with regards to the washer - do i need to take the mirror/door trim etc off to get access?

i do hope they are oem mirrors....

I mean leave the mirror on, and just remove the nut, whack a washer on. And stick the nut back on again 

 

There should be one or two locating pins I forget :)
