    I searched but did not find this fix. This may not be everyone's problem, but it sure was mine. If the mirror is only loose at the housing to the black arm there are two screws under a removable cover; it is not the one exposed tork screw. See the following photos. Self explanatory.

    Spot on, thanks for posting this fix and the good photos.

    Only thing I would change is to remove the screws, one at a time, and add some loctite 242 (blue) to the screws. This will save the effort of doing again in a few months.
