    2004 access cab....so I've got the common loose, rattling side mirror issue. Passenger mirror only. So I did some reading on the intertubes and found a ton of posts repeating the problem and the solution suggesting tightening the screws UNDER the exterior of the mirror.

    Well after extensive observation of the problem, it is not the screws under the mirror. It seems there are 3-4 small screws inside the mirror housing, behind the glass, that essentially secures the two halves together. The black "back" half that is around the glass, and the chrome "front" half that faces toward the front of the vehicle.
    Well it looks like I'm missing a few of those screws. Removing the mirror glass does not seem to be a fix as the motor and other structural masses inside appear to completely block access. Picture a substructure under the mirror essentially the same same size and dimension as the glass itself.
    So, I'm really hoping someone has found a solution. This is driving me crazy!!

    There's another thread on here that covers exactly what needs to be done.

    I’m pretty sure I warned the rb55 guy. I think he admitted early on he was only here to make the 30d/50post mark so he could list his truck or something.
