Can anyone enlighten me on how to tighten the mirrors up on a 62 galaxie is that a cap on the back of the mirror of the pops off or you have to take the whole mirror off? Thanks

To my knowledge, that cap is purely decorative. Underneath, there's the old style ball in the end of a shaft that allows the mirror housing to swivel and is held in place by friction. The mirror comes out, somehow, and the ball is locked in by a clamping device. I know on the later mirrors, the glass is held in with a glue but I'm not sure about yours. Not sure if there's anything repairable.

I can say I saw replacements for 110 buck on Ebay.
