'95 Yota 4runner passenger side mirror needs reset

My wife knocked the passenger mirror off track by holding down the control on the driver's door too long... now when I go to reset it, it won't go up but is stuck down and the controls seem reversed.

Any help is greatly appreciated!

    It wasn't that the whole mirror arm was knocked off... it was that the motors weren't working correctly to adjust the mirror angle.

    I spent some time on it and figured out how to fix it.

    Since the glass mirror part had already come out, I went ahead and unscrewed the four (4) small phillips head screws that hold the mirror's "shield/external cover" to the hing arm. After that I unscrewed the one (1) phillips head screw on the bottom that holds the mirror's motor to the hing arm. Once the mirror motor came up and off, I turned it around and took that small pin out of the center (careful! don't lose the washer) so that the yellowish/white center "hub" could come off. Take this hub and pop it back into the glass part of the mirror and then put the hub with spindle back through the mirror motor, making sure to fasten the pin and washer in place (will require pulling tension on the spindle).

    Once this is done, take the two (2) plastic pieces between the glass and motor and press them onto the plastic motor's threaded "bolts" protruding through the motor's outside. It does not have to be perfect, just close so that adjustments can be made by hand later.

    Now reassemble and adjust! It works perfect!

Follow me here: The driver side passenger window will go up and down while operated independently with the switch on its door. However, the driver seat master switch will not control window to go down

Not following you completely.
When you say driver side passenger window, you mean the driver side rear window ?
The window motors get power thru a power window control unit and thru the driver master switch.
You'll need a shop manual with the wiring diagrams to track down the problem.

My passenger side door was hit by car left no dent but window has goes all the way down but will not go up. when going down it makes a loud clank noise about 1 inch from being all the way...

chances are that the window channel was bent or broken in the impact. the impact could have also just knocked the window out of the track. you will need to remove the door panel and inspect the problem. there is a chance that it can just be set back in place and all will be good,,, but there is also a chance that the window ribbon is now cracked from the attempt to move it up and down. just keep your fingers crossed and inspect the track and window. either way -- it is not a expensive fix.

No heat from driver side

The vent actuator door may have gone bad and needs to be replaced. The common problem is not the motor but the actuator gears crack and break, but try to reset the actuator buy disconnecting the battery and reconnecting it first, but make sure the radio is turned off before you do that. If the actuator lost it's position, this procedure will reset the actuator's position if it's lost and don't know where to turn the vent doors.

This is how to replace drivers side or the passenger side actuator. Passenger side difference is noted at end of this letter. My 2000-2005 Chevy Impala driver side climate control was stuck on cold, no matter where I switched it to. The light on the panel was also out. Resetting by disconnecting the battery did not work. I had to buy and replace the drivers side actuator (Part Number 15844096 - $38.46 at Chevy dealer). The passenger side actuator is also the exact same part number. They are both located under the dash, about equal height as the climate control knobs. Make sure you disconnect the positive cable on the battery before removing the switch. Drivers side actuator is accessed by removing the bottom dash cover on the drivers side. Two easy clips to disconnect the dash cover, remove the floor courtesy light by twisting, and the cover comes right out. The drivers side actuator is harder to work on than the passenger side, due to room. But I replaced my actuator with only having to take off the bottom dash cover. There are two screws holding the actuator on. I used a 1/4 hand driver with a 3" extension, a 1/4 universal joint for the 1/4 socket (and the universal is needed), and a 7/32" socket. These were the only tools I needed. After unscrewing the two screws, I pulled the actuator off of a small arm it is connected to which switches the flap for the climate control system between hot or cold. I then was able to let it hang down, and disconnected the wire running to the actuator. Room was an issue, and I did some of this by feel. Now comes the tricky part. The new actuator has to slide back on the small arm, but it is flat on two sides, with rounded ends. The new actuator has to match the flat ends to the same position as the old actuator. I hooked the wire onto the new actuator, and let it hang down. I held the old actuator up by it, and had my wife hold the battery connector to the battery to get power. The new actuator will rotate when the connection is made, and stopped rotating when I had my wife pull the connector from the battery. It took a couple tries, but I finally got it to stop at the same position as the old actuator. I then lined up the new switch, and got it on the control arm. This took a few minutes and tries, as I had to do it by feel. I then put the two screws back in and tightened them down. Again, tricky due to room. Once done, I put the cover back on, reconnected battery, and warmed up the car. Was very happy to find that I now had heat on the drivers side, as Canadian weather is cold this time of year.
The whole job took me about an 1 1/2 hour to do.
Also, note if you have to replace the passenger side actuator, you need to remove the passenger side bottom cover on the dash. You then remove the glove compartment door by removing the five screws on the bottom of the door. Slide the whole glove compartment door out of the car. You will be happy to know you have much more room to replace the passenger side actuator, so it should be much easier and quicker than the drivers side.

Good luck and you may want to inspect the passenger side actuator also.

What kind of mirror would be for a 1993 SL2 saturn passenger side.

Your mirror is most likely black, just like all the other Saturns of that year. Knowing that, now is it power or manual? Now you go to ebay motors and search for a passenger side mirror of the right color and control. There are lots of them listed and all will fit all Saturn SL models 91-95. There is a little phillips screw holding in the cosmetic piece inside the front door at the front of the window. Unscrew that and you will see three larger nuts, take those off and the mirror will come off. Put your new mirror on the reverse order.

Remove passenger side mirror. Ineed to replace a broken passenger side mirror. Do I need to remove the entire door panel to access the scriews holding the mirror and to access to electrical connection?

On the inside trim, you can remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. Then you'll need to manipulate the panel and disconnect the door handle linkage from the door handle and disconnect the wiring for your controls. Then you can access the bolts that secure the mirror onto the door

Need instructions to install replacement side view mirrors for 95 chevy blazer

You will have to remove the door panel, behind the triangle piece on the top right of the drivers side door panel you will see 3 nuts which hold the mirror in place. Remove the nuts and the mirror should come right off the door. Same on the passenger side.

Passenger Side Mirror Broke Off

No no, you will be able to do this job yourself, on the inside of the door, pop off the plastic cover to reveal the two bolts holding the mirror on, simply undo these, but be very careful not to drop the plug down inside the door.
