    2014 4dr JK driver door mirror rattle.

    The mirror on my driver side door rattles while I’m driving, when I close the door, even when sitting at idle. The mount is tight, as is the housing. The mirror itself is what rattles. What I would like to know is how to take it apart to find what is loose. Anybody know how or could point me to a video of it?

    I have the same problem. I have seen a picture or video a while back of how to replace the glass part alone. I believe there is plastic clips or tabs that hold it into the housing. One of yours is probably broken.

    I don't know how to fix it, but it sure sounds annoying.

    Good luck

    There’s a ball and socket behind the glass. As I recall there’s a spring and a tensioning screw. I’d guess that’s what’s loose and rattling. The glass has a plastic thing glued to it. The plastic thing ha some tabs that lock into the ball and socket thing. You need to remove the glass by unlocking those tabs to get access to the screw to tighten it. Last (and only) time I did it, I broke the glass and had to replace it. Good luck.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
