Loose rearview mirror

The rearview mirror on my 1996 300E Diesel is loose and flops around. Is there an easy fix?
Thanks,
Ted

Sounds like it's time for a new mirror

i have had good success in fixing the prob. the little plastic circular holder that the swivel 'ball' goes into is most likely cracked. remove the complete mirror assy, pull the mirror out of the holder socket. now put a slim piece of paper 'whatever' over the socket, and push the mirror back into the socket. reinstall . has worked for me.. -gary Ted McKie wrote:
