    Is there a way to tighten the side mirrors on a 2002 Wrangler? I have one side mirror that will not stay in adjustment...

    If I am thinking about the correct mirrors it has a couple spots that can be adjusted. Where is it moving?

    It just seems to turn out as I drive....I have to adjust every few days...it has a kind of rubber boot between the mirror and the bracket...I wondered if there was a nut that could be tightened under this boot?

    If you pull the rubber boot out of the way there should be a screw that you can tighten.

    OK I'll try that....it's pretty brittle after all these years that's why I was hesitant about trying to move it....

    I had this issue recently. On mine the whole ball was loose so tightening the screw in the bottom wasn't fixing the issue. If you can't get it to stay tight, new mirror assemblies aren't expensive and takes about 2 minutes to replace. I found a replacement on Amazon for $42. I believe you can also buy a full set for $55 or so.
