Default How To Fix A Loose Rear View Mirror

Hey there,

Ever since I bought my C6, the rear view mirror has been loose. I have seen a few threads on the forum on how to fix this issue. So I made a detailed step by step video using the hardware store drill bit method. Hopefully it will help some more people get this problem fixed. I started this as a new thread to help answer any questions people had about the fix, hopefully this is in the right place. I saw "How to Remove & Replace", and thought this thread would fit best here. Let me know your feedback. Thanks

I tried a few different methods for fixing the loose mirror on my 05.. Using the 3 drill bit shanks was the only one that was permanent, all the rest failed within a few months..Nice job...WW
