Me, three. Except my rattle is in the passenger side mirror. Everytime I drive with the windows down and I go over a bump, it rattles. If the car is parked and I tap it, it rattles. The power mechanism works. The heating element works. I have no idea what it is. :???:

You'd think with as easy as it is to pop the mirrors out of the housing take a look to look you guys would have done it by now. Turn the mirror (not the housing) as far to the inside as it will go. After that, use a screwdriver to pop it out. Make sure you use a towel or somethign on the housing to keep from scratching it. Once you have the glass out, disconnect the heating element wire. Then you should be able to see what's causing the noise.
