My garage is really narrow so I fold in both exterior mirrors before entering. However the o/s one has gone all floppy and I have had to tape it in place.
Is there a simple fix or am I needing to look for a replacement?

Probably the cast metal piece inside the mirror has snapped before or after the spring hinge.
The mirror can be disassembled glass removed and the cast peice inside replaced with one from another mirror. (saves any repainting or waiting for matching color to come up)

I pulled mine apart and had a friend weld the cast frame. Rock solid ever since.
