    For the Less fortunate. so your dad doesn't drive your truck once and try to use super glue to fix the vibration and loose side mirror LOL ( poor me ) but gotta love the parentals for caring.

    maybe this is a just a vent just for me in general but thanks for listening.

    Watcha Need:
    1. 10mm Socket Wrench
    2. Chuck Norris Vice Grip hand

    Instructions:

    Step One: Go to your Local Tacoma

    Step 3: With your Chuck Norris Vice Grip hands GENTLY remove the plastic casing to expose the joint that hold the mirror to the door

    Step 5: Once that bolt is tight! Remove the little plastic clips GENTLY!!!!! I meant it GENTLY( there fragile and you don't want them falling in the door panel because you don't wanna remove the door panel so you use tweezers to get them out in the hot blazing heat of the arizona dessert - me venting a little )

    They should look like this:

    Step 6: Take the clips and clips them on to the lips of the plastic casing previously remove in "STEP 3".( this is sounding like a cook book - HOPE no one did this thread already because it'll be such a waste of late night TW surfing - _ - )

    Step 7: Lastly after clipping them back onto the casing place the plastic casing back on to the exposed joint where there mirror joins the door ^_^. TA DA!!!! ( no more super glue )
