Loose mirror on 05 Ex

My drivers side door mirror (non-tow mirror) blows back as I drive or meet other vehicles. Anyone experience this and is their a fix, other than replacement?

Thanks

The whole mirror or just the glass part?

It’s the entire mirror, where it pivots, as if you were going to fold the mirror against the door.

Never had to deal with adjusting the tension on these mirrors before. I just upgraded to the 07+ style aftermarket mirrors If you're looking to replace your mirrors, PM me. I have a set of both styles - the dog ears and the rounded off tow mirrors.

There are springs inside the pivot joint. Yours have either come loose or broken.
