Team...

I read on one forum somewhere a cure for this but cant find it. Searched here for GU AND Mirror but gave up 5 pages later with nothin to do with GU's or mirrors...

Anyone fixed the rattling mirrors? On mine its the whole part that the glass mounts in, then onto the small part on the door

Is it an easy fix, or $10,000,000ea from Nissan and back order from Siberia is the only solution??

Thanks

There's a small gap (the pivot) between the mirror's body and the door-mount. Get ya'self one or 2 tech screws and use your cordless drill to drive the screws in between the gap. No more shakey-shakey....

Hahahahahaha

interesting problem. I've had that issue for a while and got too looking at getting some rubber sheet and inserting into the gap. I have read the post you speak about but it may have been on aother forum. will be watching this thread.

mine used to rattle where the mirror casing joined the mount. I fixed it by removing the cover plate underneath the door mount part of the mirror and then tightened the retaining screw. Don't over tighten it or you won't be able to fold the mirror in.

I am pretty sure that if you take the Philips head screw out of the base of the mirror you can access an adjustment to increase the tension on the spring that loads the location cam. Makes it harder to fold mirror back but stops rattle.

I have the same problem with our 15 month old Navara, driver side
mirror, with the auto adjuster. I will get it fixed next service, under
warranty.

When mine was loose (and rattling), the fix was as simple as tightening the philips-head screw under the mirror head...
(tightened 'er up nicely;-)) .. The bit that is attached to the door has not been a problem to date.. (YMMV)

I found an off-set screwdriver to be the best way to get at that screw................

Aaahh yeah, well ummm..... I lied:(( .. (we'll call it a "senior moment";-))
As mentioned by others, it is indeed the 3 screws under (above?) the cover plate which are tightened to stop the rattle...
as mentioned, said cover is retained by a single philips-head screw under the mirror head...
Been a while since I had to do it, so I guess I musta left my thinkin' cap outside.......................................

Nothing a bucket of ULP and a match wouldn't fix.

Also

Doesn't happen on the JEEP

Yep, your right there Lucy, you don't even need a match on the Jeeps, if you drive them up on the Stockton beach they spontaneously combust.
