I don't have my mustang yet BUT the one I saw I believe just was basically glued to the mirror.... maybe just wedge somthing in there?(Maybe not that sound dangerous.)

Same here. If someone figures out a solution, that would be awesome.

Mods don't matter.

Just got done wedging a 2x4 behind the mirror. I had to use some duct tape to get it to hold.

haha. gotcha.

I really dont think wedging something in there is a good idea though really..

umm.. its pretty straight forward... the 2011 mustang has "spot" mirrors implemented into the side mirrors on the car. the entire mirror panel is adjustable but im not sure how to adjust ONLY the spot mirror. thats what i am asking..

well i think the only way to adjust is to take them off, ie wedge something in between without breaking the glass and try to stick them back on. or you could adjust your driving style and turn your head and look to see if anyones there.

You can't adjust them. The spotters are a part of the overall side mirror. I tried like hell to adjust them at first. I just lean my head a bit to the left and I can see through the spotter area just fine. But it would be nice if they were adjustable.

Don't tell me you've sold me a Sports car, but want to complain when I drive it that way.
