Rear View Mirror droop

I was wondering if anyone else was having issues with the rear view mirror drooping all the time.

About every two days or so, I need to readjust my rear view mirror as it starts to droop. At first I thought it was because I drive about 10 miles off road each day to and from work but as I have not been driving around home and am only driving highway I can not figure out what is causing it.

Anyone having similar issues or know of a fix for this?

Re: Rear View Mirror droop

Sorry but no issue here.. I have never looked, is there somewhere you can tighten the stiffness?

Re: Rear View Mirror droop

Don't they make a little blue pill for this problem?

I will look at my mirror today when I get home from work. I had a Nissan that did this and I just had to tighten a small hex screw on the mirror to fix it. Since this is a Chrysler product, I doubt it's that easy.

Re: Rear View Mirror droop

It could just be from the heat out here as it has been in the 90s but I can not say for sure yet.

And yes I did try to shove a pill in the side of it but it just did not work.... oh and Obama... ooops Osama is now fish food....


Thanks for any and all info...

Re: Rear View Mirror droop

Mine is stiff.
You drive 10 miles off road to and from work? Are you a lumberjack or moonshiner?

No I live in the desert in a very small town in South East AZ about 5 miles from Mexico. I live at the end of a dirt road and have about 16 acres. Dirt road to my area is 4 miles then about a 1 mile driveway.

Best part of living where I do...... no neighbors

Not so best part... after I wash and wax the "The Black Pearl" I do not want to drive anyplace as it will just get all dirty again.

Re: Rear View Mirror droop

I know this post is a few months old, but I have the same problem. I have to adjust my mirror upwards a bit every 2-3 days. It is a little annoying, so a fix would be nice.
