    Which mirror are you referring to, base or rain sensing, base model has tang at bottom to hold and rain sensing has a tab. Yours might not be clipped in properly.

    Yes a rain sensor mirror, the top of plastic / outside cover for mirror can come off ok , but not sure about the bottom half , dont want to remove the wrong way , no doubt ill have to remove the bottom half of casing to tighten ?

    thanks for any suggestions

    The lower half slides off, disconnect the wiring. At the top of the mirror is a tab that sits over a sleeve on the retainer that is glued to windscreen, pull the mirror bracket towards the rear of ranger until the tab is out of sleeve and rotate mirror anti clockwise until the mirror releases from retainer. Installation is reverse.
