Electric door mirror repair

Hello, I bashed the wing mirror on my toyota avensis and the glass bit has dropped out. It is held on by the electric wiring. I cant figure out how to fix it back in place. Any ideas please?

Hi.. It was an Avensis not a camry. Unfortunately the Avenssi was not on the drop down list.

Basically The bits on the back of the galss mirror did not seem to match up with the backplate. After trying several different ways I did the following.

1. remove the black casing this leaves a cover with several holes in it.

2 slide the lugs on the mirror furthest away from the door into the slot just to the left of the round circular backplte.

3 put a screwdriver through the rear housing hole near to the door. If you look through you will see a "lug sitting on a black lip. Use the screwdriver to force the lip away from the car. the lug will slip down the side of it. release the lip and it will secure the mirror.

Note the mirror does not seem to fit 100% correctly so I've added some tape for extra security.

Cheers

Please describe how to replace a 2004 focus wing mirror


You have to remove the sail cover that's on the opposite side of the mirror. It is held on by just some plastic lips on the edges. Pry off carefully. There is one speed nut at the very front of the mirror and one large nut in the center. That's it. Don't drop the big nut into the door panel.

Left hand rear viem mirror foggy. Need suggestions on repair or replacement. How does the mirror unit come out of the housing?


On the inside of the door directly behind the mirror you will find a triangular plastic cover
gently pry the cover off the door, it is only held on with plastic push in clips
you will now see a few holes in the metal door frame
there will also be a multi wire plug for the electric mirror,seperate the plug
In the holes on the door there will be at least 3 bolt heads that you can see, remove those bolts and the mirror will come off as a unit
do not drop the bolts into the door as it will turn a minor job into a major in a few seconds.
do not try to replace the glass as you have to almost destroy the whole mirror to get it apart
just buy the complete unit and bolt it back on the door
