wing mirror "set point"


Somebody banged into my driver side wing mirror so the default setpoint of the entire unit is no longer stable. I have to move my mirror to the extreme tilt to be just about ok to drive. It appears to have too much play on the dead zone so it folds in a little pushing my view out of range. It is also wobbles on bumpy roads now which is annoying.

This may seem basic for some but this is my first car and I am not experienced in the simple stuff. I tried the search function but to no avail. My gut tells me to follow another guide on swapping the indicator light and find a bolt in there and tighten it.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

(Although I did manage to fix a roof issue using this very explicit and thoughful guide and I was very proud as my first ever car fix, let's see how long it lasts!)
