Default Side mirrors flopping around

Just wanted to know if there was a way to tighten up the side mirrors on my 92 HB. The driver side stays fairly still, but the passenger side will just fold in any time i'm driving.

Which mirrors do you have? manual, power, or towing.

On my sons 1993 there is a screw on the bottom of the mirror that can be tightened to keep it from moving around so easily.

So I’m assuming you have the “flag” style mirror(s) like the first photo.

The bottom screw/bolt is the adjustment point of the mirror for up, down and all around infinite adjustments for the driver side mirror, as well as for the passenger mirror, since they are the same.

The 3 bolts on the triangular area of the mirror are the mounting points to the truck itself.

First gen xterra mirrors fit the d21 and wd21s with a small doubt of dremel work.

I did the Xterra mirror upgrade. Much improved over the floppy flag style. DS was wired for power, PS was not

I had same issue with my 97. I couldn’t tighten it enough. So I took it apart and sanded the joints where they contacted each other. Now they don’t move at all.
