Tightening a Loose Side Mirror.


Introduction: Tightening a Loose Side Mirror.

About: Update 12 September 2017: A very special thanks to Sam Elder, a manager here at Instructables, who tracked down the cause of my lost publications and fixed the issue. Take a bow Sam!

The side mirrors on this Kia Rio are slack. Time to fix this rattling issue.

Step 1: The Access Panel.

The mounting hardware is hidden behind a plastic panel. Using a knife I carefully pried the panel off.

Step 2: Tightening.

Using an elbow type Phillips head screwdriver, I tightened the 3 screws holding the mirror in place. I did the same process for example other mirror.

Now the mirrors are secure and safe for the road.
