    85 R80 mirror glass loose

    The glass is loose in the housing. Is there any way to tighten it? The view is blurry.

    I ran a bead of instant glue around the edge of one mirror on my RS.

    I've used clear silicon sealant on the edge. A very small bead that is pushed between the glass and the plastic with a small knife blade. Clean everything first, then wipe off the plastic parts after installing the sealant. When it dries, use a razor blade to cut any excess off the glass.

    On my RS, I popped it all the way out then secured it back in place wtih JB Weld. Worked fine for me.
