Driver side mirror is loose

My driver side mirror has become loose and wiggles when I drive. Its right at the swivel point on the mirror. The mirror is a heated and power mirror so I know they are pretty pricey. Is there anyway to fix it, or will my warranty cover it?

Is it just the piece of glass of the whole thing?

Mine did this when I bumped a Construction sign. I feared the worst. Hit the good button and before they fold all the way hit it again back n forth, this popped mine back on the track or gear that it moves on. Let us kno if that works or not!

I think mine is just the glass. I also something with my passenger mirror. Hard enough that it left a dent in the door when the mirror smacked the side of the truck. Only dented the plastic slightly but I have noticed lately that the glass only seems to be shaky. Is there a way to tighten the glass?

4204 replacement heated mirror glass, runs about 30 to 40 bucks. The glass is held in by the black plastic around it and adhesive pads hold it on to that. The plastic housing snaps into a swivel base. try to fold up some eletric tape and stick it between the housing and mirror and push it all the way in so you can't see it (for looks) should solve your shaky glass problem without buying replacement mirror!!

No problem. Some clown smashed my glass so I replaced with the 4204 piece but it shook like crazy and was very annoying The tape gimmick was my fix and it has held up for over 7 months now.

The car wash folks manually folded my mirrors part ways couple times and I noticed the entire thing would wiggle while driving. Power folding it in and back out snapped it back into place.
