Re: Driver side mirror vibration.

I only notice vibration in the driver side mirror when I have the radio turned up. I kind of like that though.

Re: Driver side mirror vibration.

They replaced my driver side mirror. No change still vibrates going over bumps. It goes smooth throug all positions now, so there is an improvement in that.
Playing with it a little bit, I recognize that the sensitivity to vibration is depending o. The mirror position: the farer you turn it outwards the more it vibrates. So it's a design 'issue' nothing to fix.

Just thinking if a put some weight on one corner of the back if that would calm the vibration in the sense of changing the mass with a constant spring rate? Mechanical engineering statement appreciated

Re: Driver side mirror vibration.

Good to have this thread...notice some minor vibration on the driver's side mirror at highway speeds but got one "could not duplicate" a while back and I have not gone in again on it. Other mirrors are fine.

Unhappy Re: Driver side mirror vibration.

Purchased new JEEP and driver side mirror vibration started after 1 year at 40 MPH and up. Cars and headlights in rearview shake. Whistling sound when windows are rolled down. Dealer replaced mirror, and problem is worse than ever. No vibration on passenger side mirror.

So I am through my fourth mirror now (this one de-laminated the glass) but still the vibration is present. Therefore I assume its not a bug but a feature. Could it be that the power folding mirrors are a little bit more stable?

Re: Driver side mirror vibration.

It is not a "feature". I have 31,000 miles and my manual folding mirrors are rock solid.

Ah, don't get me wrong, the housing is rock solid, too but the glass is vibrating at any bump (which we have a lot in the Hampton Roads area) and at speeds over 60mph.

My question is, if the power folding mirrors are more stable, damped, weighted (you name it) so that the vibration is suppressed?
