Side Mirrors falling off?!?

So about a month and a half ago I come out to my jeep at around midnight in an outdoor parking lot and my driver side mirror is dangling from the wires in the housing. I gently pushed it back in and it clicked in and brought it to the dealer. They ordered a new mirror which just came in this week.

Yesterday as I was at the airport, went in and came out and the passenger mirror was dangling from the housing.

I am bringing it in to the dealer on monday but wanted to see if anyone else is experiencing this or has heard of this from anyone else.

I live in New Hampshire and the weather is just starting to get nice again so I have no idea what would be causing this on not one but both side mirrors.

First thing I thought of when I read the OP was the part in dumb and dumber where he yells "Our pets heads are falling off!!"

As for trying to offer some assistance to our OP I'd say 'uh that's a little F'd up.' My mirrors are fine, that being said I've had some close calls with my garage door pulling in and backing out so I might be in your situation in the future. I'd say your issue is warranty related due to something missing from installation. Go to your dealer with a bit more persuasion that you do not expect to return with this issue again.

Re: Side Mirrors falling off?!?

Mine are just fine, no problems. I wonder if your particular vehicle has an issue or you've just managed to park in the vicinity of some destructive people with zero regard for others.

Re: Side Mirrors falling off?!?

No problem here and I have to fold back the drivers mirror every time I back out of my garage. Solid as the day I bought it.

Either you have a "friend" that's following you around and messing with your stuff or the same person was responsible to attach both mirrors at the factory and they were having a bad day.

Similar thing happen to wife's Volvo in a parking lot. Someone ran between her car and the one next to her when there was not enough room. Something had to give.

Re: Side Mirrors falling off?!?

Sorry I'm a little dense, but I can't tell from your description whether the entire housing was dangling or if just the mirror itself was dangling, and if so, what parts were still there inside the housing for you to "click" it back into?
