Loose wing mirror? - Help!

Hi,

I dont know what caused this to happen but my wingmirror on my drivers side is slightly loose. Is there a way I can fix this I know if (when) i fold in my wing mirrors there is a hole to allow a torx key would i just have to tighten this or not...

Looks like it's been hit with something. You may have to undo the torx bit, move the body around until the end popping out pushes in then tighten back up again

Seems bent to me probably the door under the wing mirror.
You could try but its not likely to solve.

Did you bought the car used?

Because that door seems painted, I can see some orange skin

The door isnt bent and yes i bought the car used. And maybe its the light hitting the car and my phone camera making it look as though theres orange skin.. in person i cannot see 'orange skin'

Here you have a similar thread...

http://www.seatcupra.net/forums/showthread.php?t=426850

I also broke mine parking and it's a little bent, after replacing, guess it's the door where the wing mirror sits that (not visible) is bent but not as much as yours.

id depends, could be the wing mirror bent, or the door under the wing mirror bent, try to screw the bolt first, but as I said before I dont think it's that...
