when i first got my car and had the system in it the rearview mirror was really strong and barely moved at all compared to my VS one, but slowly its getting weaker and weaker, ive tried putting superglue in all the joints and around where it connects to the window, that worked for a couple weeks and then peeled off, ive tried hotglue but that is useless when its been sitting in the sun coz it goes soft again... WTF can i do to stop my rearview from pointing down when my subs are on, all i can see is the ground...

Surely some Epoxy Resin will hold it on? On second thoughts, that idea stinks. (Get it!?) :lol:

dunno dude...thats why I said I hadnt had the time to do so but if someone wanted cant imagine it would cost much and would be handy :) ... and the pin hole...mate should be a small allen or torx piece ...should be allen key tho mate like the EF/EL ...real small one.

I have the same problem ... and bastard buzzes so much from vibration. That's what you get with two 12s in an AU ute behind the seats.
