There are philips head screws behind the glass that hold the glass assembly in. If you are very careful, you can manuever the glass around and stick a philips head drive up there and tighten the screws that have loosened up.

The assembly that holds the glass portion is held into the mirror housing with screws. They get loose over time. You can only see them if you tilt the mirror in extreme directions up and down, side to side. There should be three screws in there.

You will find they are all a little loose.

If I am wrong, I hope somebody else will chime in. I played with plenty of those bullet style mirrors from 78-82 over the years.

CS,

I'll take a peek at my 81 mirrors this weekend and see if there is any adjustment mechanism visible. I'll check my Shop Manual too. 80-81 gotta be the same mirror. Stay tuned.

CS,

The Shop Manual only gives directions on removing the entire mirror assembly from the door. I pushed my mirrow as far as I dared on the right side of the drivers side mirror and as best as I can tell it looks like the mirror and its base sit in a spring retention mechanism of some kind. Very hard to see in there. It might be easier to remove the mirror from the door frame so the (in my case) manual remote lever can move more freely. You may be able to better see what's inside the assembly. If you have electric remote mirrors this will be a little more difficult. Sorry I couldn't be more of a help.

Good luck. Let us know how it turns out.
