Cool Re: Muth mirror

Contact Muth Mirrors and explain your problem to them. They will send you a new foam donut to go under the mirrors which will stop the vibrating. No cost! At least that was how it was in the past for mine.

Re: Muth mirror

the actual mirrors should not vibrate at all. check for the looseness of them by gently tugging the mirror itself.


And yes, call muth mirrors and discuss with them.

Re: Muth mirror

At one time they did vibrate and Muth sent out a "fix" where you applied a double backed foam tape "ring" under the round holder where they clamp on. That does stop the rattleing. I broke one of my mirrors and when they sent the new one, it had been updated and did not rattle. It's a simple fix....as long as you don't break the mirror trying to get it off. That's the tricky part.

Re: Muth mirror

Joe, Be sure they are securely in place. I had one that vibrated like yours, so I contacted Muth. They sent out a replacement and when I removed the original mirror, I noticed the PO had not seated it completely. I popped it in all the way and no more vibration.
