Default Loose drivers side mirror. How to tighten?

Does anyone know how to tighten the drivers side mirror? It's rattleing around and driving me nuts. It's loose at the pivot point not the door mount. It's the power/folding version.

I looked at it but can't figure out how to tighten it. There is a little plastic access panel on the bottom below the pivot but there doesn't appear to be a nut or anything to tighten in there? Maybe I missed it?

Thanks.

But my transmission didn't make it to 75000 miles....

Thanks for the info. Unfortunatly none of those videos show what I need? Mine is loose at the pivot point, not the door.
That link to the broken mirror replacement had good pictures of a broken pivot point but I can't really tell if there is a way to tighten that joint or if I have to replace the whole mirror?

I'll try and post up a video later of what my issue is with it.

Did you ever figure out how to tighten the mirror at the pivot point, mine is loose on the drivers side too? Freeway wind is enough to push the mirror down after a couple minutes. Thanks.

Mine was doing the same thing ........ didn't know about working the power fold a few times and now it is working the way it should .......tight now so try that mine was lose to the point that every time I closed the door I had to push it out ..... they say if you work the power fold a few times it will be back in sync.
