Mirror Vibrates a Lot! M2 112

I think someone else posted a similar issue. Turns out, whoever put the mirror on did not properly thread the retaining bolt. It got tight so they just stopped and did not notice the bolt was not actually threaded properly nor was it holding the assembly to the door properly.

Is this something I have to get Freightliner to fix? Can it be done when I am at the factory for a new floor in late Sep?

Just run a tap in the hole to clean up the threads and get a new stainless bolt at the hardware store.

I got the job done! Allen rather than Torx but SS for the WIN!

Mark that one off the list. Pictures of floor taken at MHSRV and they were not willing/able to repair.

Ah, gotcha. The LVT flooring...some some tiles replaced. "New floor" makes me anxious.
