Ok, a small annoyance has cropped up.

At times (not always), my left mirror will migrate its position in such a way I am looking at the lane directly to my left (no rearward view, it moves to the left).

is there anyway to adjust its tension so it wont move? the right side stays put where ever I put it.

I assume you don't mean the post the mirror is on is moving but the "socket" that the mirror swivels on won't stay where you put it.

The only cure I know of other than taking the lens out is to spray the "ball" on the back of the mirror with some clear acrylic enamel.

Push the mirror off to one side a bit, tape off everything but the "ball" part, and put a few coats of clear on it. After it dries it will add thickness to the swivel joint and hopefully fix your problem.

After cleaning for good adhesion, Instead, I would (coat) apply clear nail polish.
