Angry Mirror Wiggle

Is there any way to fix/stop the exterior tow mirrors from wiggling ,wobbling, shaking while driving? Its getting to a point that they are useless now to try to see behind you.
Thanks

It is just the mirror glass itself. Not the full assembly. Sorry for confusion.

If its is the glass itself you should be able to fix it. You will need to pull the glass out, yes pull it out. The metal clips inside and plastic guides are what's lose. You will need to pry on the metal clips to tighten them up then reinstall. I just replaced both my mirror assembles as I had a wobble in the knuckle. Good luck!

If its power then power it all the way in so the outer edge is exposed. Grap it and pull. I like to make it a quick snatch, seams to be less stress on the glass.
