Vibrating side view mirrors

My side view mirrors are vibrating at about 35 mph and above. Anybody else have this or have a fix? My old GTI did this until one day I looked over and the mirror (just the glass) was gone.

Try checking the mirror itself first, the glass part just clips into the mirror housing. If thats all good check the nuts that hold the mirror on inside the truck. To really check them you should take the door panel off, but there is a plastic cap over the top one. There just small bolts use a 1/4" drive and they should be pretty snug!

My 05 with 48k had the drvr side wagglin all around. Yet another 160 pt certification failure on the dealer's part. I just took sail panel off & pulled the top of the door panel loose to get a 1/4 drive/socket on the thing & retightened the 3 nuts holding it to the door. All good now. Actually did both doors but pass side was pretty tight.

Thanks for the help guys. It is just the glass vibrating. Is it safe to assume that the glass is glued to a piece of plastic and the plastic attaches to mirror assembly and that would be where the problem lies. Maybe something with the connection is broke?

You are correct, the glass is attached to a piece of plastic with a fancy piece of double sided tape. The plastic bit snaps into the motor mechanism, to get it off angle the mirror all the way up and pull straight back on the bottom of the glass. There are some pics on the heated mirror thread!

Wow, yours came with vibrating mirrors? Was that an upgrade? That option wasn't even available when I bought mine!

Oh it was an option all right and I'm such a good haggler i didn't even have to pay for it! Thanks for all the help once it gets warmer I am going to pull them apart and see what's going on.
