    The driver's door mirror on my MH gets blown back out of position and now a gust or driving over 60 mph means only the passenger can see anything!

    Is this internally adjustable or is a visit to the dealer required?

    Do you fold it in often when parked up?

    I had the same problem when the m/h was about 12 months old ...... asked the Pug dealer to adjust it while in for service. Their answer was that they could not tighten it and fitted a complete new mirror under warranty :Doh:... how wasteful is that!

    Thanks guys...

    It's only 6 weeks old so I can't wait for the yearly service.

    If I've folded the mirrors it'll be twice on the Channel Tunnel.

    I did see the "D" shaped panel on the underside I'll see if this pops off to reveal a nut. If not I'm off to the Fiat dealer.
