Angry Floppy mirrors

I have a 2005 sw with the power fold mirrors. When going down the motorway the other day I looked in*** the one on the passenger side and noticed it was flopping about a bit nothing too drastic but annoying all the same. I had a look when I parked up and it moves in & out a little when you touch it. It feels like the cogs or whatever is inside it have worn is there anything I can tighten to stop this or does anyone have any ideas on how to fix this please as I don't like it when stuffs floppy

I can remember when i had the saloon mine did that, my coupe & every coupe other one I've driven hasn't got this issue, nor has my RCZ.

I doubt there is anything to tighten up as its just the plastics that are wearing out, correct me if im wrong techs?

might have just got disconnected slightly. just try pushing the mirror slightly in the center and it may "click" in place.

Hi john its not the glass that's floppy its the part of the mirror that holds the glass that would fold in when you lock the car .

now i see said the blind man.

i would imagine there would be a bolt or two to hold the mirror and that may have come loose. only way to tell is to take it all apart and investigate.
