2012 Hyuindai Sonata Limited. The self dimming inside rear view mirror is loose on the windshield. I don't see any attaching screws. How can I tighten this mirror?

Look for a set screw on the button.

What button? There is a black plastic cover on the windshield but I don't know how to remove it. I suspect that the screw is behind this cover..

The button is glued to the windshield. The post for the mirror slides on to the button. If the set screw is not tight it wiggles.

Post some pictures if you still don't see it.

:) Fixed. The set screw was right in front of my eyes the entire time. The black screw blended in with the black molding. Thank you all for your help.
