I have a wink mirror and as a lot of you know it has 2 mounting brackets, one on each end, and you have to drill the mirror to the roof through your headliner. well thats what i did but now it has just simply fallen out and even before it would vibrate so much that i could barely even see anything in it! does anyone have any suggestions on how to make this thing stay up and stabilized?

well i dont really consider it ricey, ricey things only look "good" and serve no real performance purpose. However my wink mirror provides 180 degree views behind me while i drive, eliminating any and all blind spots. its a safety thing and its handy to have. So go troll somewhere else please. :) thanks

TS: I would have used the far screws that hold the visors in to mount the mirror, that's how I have mine and it hasn't backed out once but does vibrate some with my 75A mounts. This would eliminate the visors but would have kept you from having to drill into the roof :noes:

i didnt want to drill in the headliner but they are barely visible anyway so its not that bad. my mirror is about 5 centimeters to wide to line up with the outer visor screws so unfortunately thats not a possibility without buying a new smaller mirror.

Nevermind just saw the post that said it doesn't fit. I had to stretch the brackets a little and it for with no vibration

I have a Broadway mirror that i picked up NEW for under $15 and that along with your rear-view mirrors adjusted correctly eliminate ALL my blindspots without the need of a Golf-Cart Rice mirror, but to each their own, hella JDM yo!! :thumbsup:

Take off your mirrors and put the screws in the mirror mounting spot like this
Can you tell me how you got the actual visor off af that little plastic piece once you got it out of the roof? Bc the only way I can see as of right now is to break it
