The little plastic/metal piece that provides friction to the ball at the end of my mirror broke. Its all floppy now. I added a few layers of electrical tape but that doesn't work so well.
Today I stopped by the dealer and looked to see if I could buy/order that little part. They could only offer to sell me the entire mirror assembly. The tech looked at my mirror and went back to the computer but he could not find a part number for that little plastic piece.

Will have to see if it is effected by heat...
I hate to buy a new mirror just because of that crappy plastic insert...what a waste, Subaru should sell that part as a replacement.

what did work is some open cell foam about .25" thick.
i used several layers of card stock, similar to the small boxes raisin come in. it
you'd be surprised how many door hinges in homes today have a piece or 2 of hinge box behind them as a shim.
