the bass from the stock system? lol

the bass from my Kicker 15" does that to my mirror! lol
it has like a ball joint thingy in the back, you can probably superglue it to hold it in place

stock system? your mirror shouldnt be doing that.. but what i do.. is i just flip that little lever under the mirror so you can aim it farther down and still look out the back. mine seems to not move down as much when its like that. but im about to just take mine out..

i read that the dale jr cars came with the panasonic system. i have the bass all the way down and it still ends up goin down. i dont have a lever, its the auto dimming mirror. there is a plastic ring that is loose but not sure if that has anything to do with it. ill look some more. thanks tho

oh i didnt know that. but still you dont have subwoofers in there.. so it really shouldnt be moving anywhere. id tighten down the ring. and see what happens. i dont have that style mirror but as far as iknow nothing should be loose up there
