Problem with vibrating driver side replacement mirror

Hi

Recently I purchased a side mirror as a replacement from discountautomirrors.com which sells a brand called kool-vue mirrors. Now I notice that it is vibrating more than the stock mirror used to. Can anyone tell me if this is just how these cheaper mirrors are or if perhaps I didn't reinstall the foam insulation piece on optimally.

Thank you for your time!

Dylan

Don't think there's much of an option in how to install, I'd guess the different mirror.

It's most likely not the mirror at fault but the dead liquid engine mount which muffles the rattle can of an engine, had the same thing happen.
