Default Rear View Mirror Shakes

has anyone figured out a way to stop this?

i have an idea:

use two pontiac stickers small enough to fit on the back side of the mirror, place the stickers on dynamat, cut that out, then put that on the reverse side of the mirror. from the front you see pontiac stickers, but the dyynamat might add enough to make it stop shaking a little.

HAHA that is great just get paper or something to wedge inbetween when you put it back on and see if that tightens it enough to hold it on

Or just replace the mirror itself. Just replace it with a new one, or one that is not loose.. from the junkyard..

You running that 1200watts of bass? I'm thinking of running 1000-1500watts of bass, and my mirror already shakes with the car'* factory audio.. .

If it'* just shaking on the little piece that glues to the windhield, then you should be able to tighten the little set screw that'* supposed to hold it on.
