My mirror was sagging, one of the fingers that goes around the pivot ball was broken and the snap ring would not stay on. I screwed a black screw next to the snap ring so the head of the screw held it in place, I put another one across from it to maintain the ring placement, put it back on, it was better but it eventually sag again. Some guys used silastic or foam rubber and still had problems. Then a light flashed, I placed a small balloon over the ball,this gave it some thickness and drag, works fine, can move it easily but it will stay where I put it.
