Question about 1991 Toyota Previa

1 Answer

Outside mirrors on my Previa look like they are about to fall out.

Both side mirrors wobble so much in their housings that I am afraid they will fall out. How do I fix this before they have to be replaced?

    It is not the mirror housings, but the mirrors themselves that are wobbling in their housings. It sounds like this fix will snug down the housings, but not do anything to affix mirror to housing. How do I get behind the mirror, inside the housing to where it attaches to the power traverse mounts?

    Thanks, brudda. I will at least give your suggestion a try, and see what I can do. Best of days to you and yours.

On the inside of the door, directly inside where the mirrors are there should be a triangular piece of moulding (plastic). Take a straight screwdriver and gently pry this piece off. Once that is off you will see..probably 3 nuts, 7 or 8mm.... all you have to do then is just tighten them up until they are snug, and replace the piece of moulding that you took off.

    I'm not sure. I used to be a bodyman, and these mirrors usually come in one complete sealed unit. You may have to replace the mirrors. Sorry i could not be of more help.

Have to replace the passanger side mirror on 2000 dodge stratus. how do i go about doing this


remove the triangle trim piece on the interior side of door (usually snap on a delicate pry with a flat head screw driver will do the trick)
next remove the (3) 10mm nuts securing the mirror to the door, next unplug the mirror by squeezing the plug connector, pull the mirror of the outside of vehicle. Reverse this order during installation and you should be fine.
Note the mirror may fall and scrath the paint while the nuts are off, keep a hand on the old mirror to prevent from falling during removal

The passenger mirror on my 2003 Toyota 4 Runner wobbles. How can I tighten down the mirror on the base?


With my 4 runner, I had the same problem. All I needed to do was use a phillips head screw driver and tighten up a screw that is underneath the mirror housing. i.e. there is a screw hole on under side of the hosing for the mirror. Find that hole and tighten (it may seem tight already, but just give it a little bit more torque and see if that helps)

The glass in the driver side rear view mirror is loose. how do you tighten it up?


The driver and passenger side mirrors have a small rubber plug in the bottom center of the mirror housing. Remove the plug and there is a phillips head screw holding the mirror assembly. Tighten this screw about 1/8 turn and it will keep the mirror from moving around. If you remove the screw you can remove the mirror and drive motors. Use a bit of thread-lock to keep the screw from loosing again. Reinstall the rubber plug.

Side View Mirror replacement for a 2008 KIA Spectra


Insert flat bladed screwdriver between outside rearview mirror holder and mirror actuator. Wrap it with tape. It should just pop off.

Outside mirror light


Piece of cake. Do not attempt to pop out the light from the bottom of the mirror. You WILL break the housing.

Power the mirrors upwards as far as you can. Then with a flashlight shine the light through the lower gap. Using a thin flat head screw driver or thin file (I used a file) lightly press the housing tab from the bottom side of the mirror away from the car itself. Use the tool to press in the tab then use the tool to move it down.

Make sure you do not press against the glass for leverage you will break the mirror.

Replacing the housing simply place the 2 tabs side of the housing towards the car. Gently press the housing upwards until it snaps into place.

Side Mirrors will adjust side to side but not up and down.


There are two tiny motors in each mirror. one for up/down. One for side to side. They have jack screws (plastic) that fit into the motors.

You can manually put your hands on either side of the mirror and force adjust it. If you hear a ratcheting sound, the jack screws are OK. Then repeat with hands on top and bottom.

If you hear ratcheting and mirror stays where you stop it, that means one of the motors is bad. The motor assembly is available as a separate part.
