    Default Passenger Side Mirror

    When I got my 998 the passenger side mirror was adjusted so you couldnt see out of it. I've not figured out exactly how to adjust it so you can see out of it. Seems like you have to look through the windshield to see it, but I cant get it adjusted so I can see. Any tips? Anyone have pictures of this mirror adjusted correctly?

    thanks,
    Scott...

    When installed correctly you do have to look through the windshield to see with it.

    YUP... It's not the best set up. Sets far forward of the windshield. Then you can get a glance thur the windshield to see who's hanging out in your blind spot. Pay CLOSE attention to it blocking your view when making right hand turns or approaching traffic. No blind spot detection on HUMMW's. Have to stretch your neck, working both mirrors to get around in traffic. And THEN there's all the flat glass with reflection like a "house of mirrors"

    Not saying the HUMMWV is a traffic stopper, But when you saddle up in one, you got to be on your toes, eye's and ear's.

    You sure that's a HMMWV mirror?
    Looks different from mine.
    You shouldn't have the bar in front of the mirror.
    The mirror should be in front of the bar.

    Mine are on the other side of the bar supports. It protects the mirrors from branches, etc.....
