For today's quick fix, we're going to show you how to fix a common problem in your early Mustang, which is a sagging rear view mirror. All early Mustangs use a ball and socket style system, which over time can loosen up and cause the mirror to sag. Today, we're going to show you how to fix that issue using our '68 Mustang coupe.

There are three pieces to the mirror system on our '68. This is our standard replacement rear view mirror, this is going to be the bracket, and there will be a stud that mounts to the glass. Many times the stud doesn't go bad, so if it's in place, it's usually okay to use. What I mean by the ball and socket, is you have the ball in the back of your mirror. The bracket's going to fit over it, and you'll the tighten the screw, which is going to hold it to the bracket, and the exact same thing is going to hold it to our windshield.

This is typical of a stock mirror in an early Mustang. You can get it into place, but hit one small bump, and it falls right down. If you've tried tugging the bracket multiple times and it simply won't stay up, it's time to replace it. Normally, the only tool needed for this installation would be a Phillips head screwdriver. In the case of our '68, it does have an after-market bracket on it, so we're going to use a 4-mm Allen key to remove it.

See, here the stud's still mounted to the windshield, so there are no problems there. We can install our new bracket. You'll want to loosen the screw until it slides over. You want to get it just hand tight. You don't want to crank it down too much yet, rather you want to have some play in it. Now we're going to turn it and loosen the other side so we can install our mirror. A little looser to get in there. Now we're going to tighten this up again. Get it pretty tight. I'm going to spin it around at the top. Now we'll install the screw on the mirror end of our bracket. You don't have to crank it too tight, but just get it snug. You want it so the mirror can move, but you want to make sure it doesn't move too freely. There you go. And our installation's finished.

I don't have to tell you how important it is from a safety standpoint to have a good functioning rear view mirror. Installation will only take you about 5 minutes, so you'll be back on the road in no time.
