Is it possible to adjust rear view mirror height? Ideally I would like to raise it up a bit. I googled a bit and couldn't find anything specific about adjusting the height on the 2020 but did find some mentioning it could be adjusted a little on previous models. I have the auto-dimming mirror if that matters.

Thanks!

God I hope someone tells you that it's possible, that thing is so low it's one of the only things that still bugs me about my Outback.

I thought the mirror has 2 ball joints. One on the back of the mirror and one where I mounts to the windshield. Is is just the one one the windshield is pretty tight, at least for me, so it took some effort to adjust it.
Oh perfect, that did the trick! :D Thanks!

I did not know about this.
Really it was annoying at 4 way stops since i'd have to look for any car on my right due to the mirror blocking that area.

Great info!

Thank you so much! Everytine I’d get in the car I’d be pissed about the mirror. I had no idea!!!

I’m unclear on this and afraid of ripping the mirror off the windshield, do you secure the arm and raise the mirror or lift up on the base affixed to the windshield? I’m not near the vehicle and probably over thinking this.

It’s not likely at all that you will rip the base off the windshield, they’re securely attached to the glass. There’s a ball-type joint on the base where it mounts to the glass, then an arm, then another ball joint on the mirror. I’m not near my car either, but that’s the norm for these things. When you look at it, it will become obvious.
