Driver side mirror vibration.

My driver side rear view mirror vibrates while driving. It's enough to make the headlights of other cars appear to be shaking. The passenger side is solid and does not move like this.

Anyone else. I'm going to see if I can get my dealer to replace it. This time they can't tell me "unable to replicate"... It's easy to see.

Re: Driver side mirror vibration.

I too have noticed the vibration, but only at higher speeds above 60 MPH.

Re: Driver side mirror vibration.

Maybe this is normal? Hopefully more people chime in. Go for a drive people! Enjoy your jeep!!!

Re: Driver side mirror vibration.

I sometimes notice a small vibration. Dealer could not fix it. Only on higher speeds or loud music

Re: Driver side mirror vibration.

I've noticed no vibration in my mirrors at all, and I'm kind of prone to see problems. Do you feel vibration in the seat or steering wheel? You should have no vibration that would cause the mirror to vibrate unless the mirror glass is not securely mounted in the housing.

Re: Driver side mirror vibration.

I have vibration on my steering wheel a small amount. I have a few things the dealer needs to square away.

I was just checking if this mirror issue is normal for all our jeeps

Re: Driver side mirror vibration.

If it only happens at certain speeds, it could be a wheel balance problem on that side, which would also account for the steering wheel vibration.

Re: Driver side mirror vibration.

Mine does it but it is subtle. Passenger side is fine. Probably just the way it is. I noticed it does it at higher speeds on the highway. Maybe a combo of speed and ECO? I'll have to see.

Re: Driver side mirror vibration.

My driver side mirror will vibrate as well over rough roads or bridge expansion joints. Passenger side is better, though not perfect. The 20" rims I have also contribute to that I'm sure.

I have noticed this on almost all vehicles I have driven to a certain extent, so I'm not too worried.

I have the vibration in the driver mirror as well. It happens at any speed with the smallest bump. I recognized its depending on the position of the mirror. The farer you adjust it inside the lesser vibration you have. I need it very far out due to my 6'4.
I also see that it doesn't go smooth from inside to the outside. It got stock on 2/3 of the way as if the gears jumping over some teeth.
The passenger side is fine! Solid, smooth just great.

Re: Driver side mirror vibration.

Haven't noticed vibration while driving. Both mirrors vibrate with stereo at high volume.

Re: Driver side mirror vibration.

Sounds like the good vibrations are giving you excitations. (mm, bop, bop)
