    Default rear view mirror was vibrating, now fallen off ... doh

    Had problems with micro vibrations from road surface transmitting through windscreen then through rear mirror making it very awkward to use it (you cant focus on anything you view in it) it seemed loose so have adjusted it around in past only for it to come back a few days later, tried moving it again before only for it to come off the ball joint at the windscreen end of the mount.
    Took metal mount off windscreen but the ball joint wont go back together (plastic inner retainer is damaged) so inner spring is now not tensioned. Guess a whole new vx mirror is needed, lucky its a manual dip rather than my old vectras auto dip, are manual dip mirrors standard across the insignia range or indeed used on different vx cars e.g astra? Maybe get one from a breaker rather than stealer!

    You lost me on what car it is lol ?
    If it's a vectra / astra etc any other vx mirrpr will fit from same age across the model range - astra - vectra - corsa.
    I'm pretty sure the insignia is a completely different fitment.

    Yes the insignia is a completely different fitment , I've only had to take one off and refit but it was a while back.
    A bit more involved of a job to remove "iirc" , very tight fitment , I also have a feeling that there is a retainer grub screw that holds the mirror to the screen bracket , it will be obvious if it has.
    Just be sure to get the correct mirror in regards to autodim and sensor wiring etc.
