Question about 2007 Toyota Yaris

1 Answer

Offside door mirror has continuous ratcheting action, after being knocked.

The offside door mirror has been knocked and now the electrics are playing up, so every time we switch the ignition on the complete mirror unit is powered and just performs a continuous ratcheting action. This can only be solved by holding the unit firm for a short period. Toyota say the only repair option is a new unit at $700! The glass adjusting motor still works as does the folding action.

Sounds like the main motor mount pin is snapped.
Unfortunately they are right, you will need to replace the mirror unit complete.

That said, I wouldnt be paying $700. Ring around wreckers and get a 2nd hand one. You'll likely find one in the right colour for your vehicle..

I have a fiate punto grande and the offside electric window keeps failing had at garage three times now but still keeps failing


Would I be correct if I said.....when you operate the switch to get the window to lower it will do it and then may stop? or is it when the window has lowered that it has trouble closing? Has the switch been replaced? what wires are being soldered? Is there a bad earth connection to the motor? Unfortunately Fixya does not provide an accompanying video option.

How do I replace offside electric wing mirror on my 56 reg Ford Focus Zetec Climate?


didnt know they made a ford focus in 1956 ,they still made the MK1 zeyphr and zodiac then the ford consul didnt come out till till 1957 ,so i assume its a modern focus and to change a mirror is a simple job just pull the triangular trim off the inside of the door at the back of the mirror and you will see three screws ,you should be able to unplug the multiplug without taking the door panel off undo the screws and the mirror come off .

Can you tell me how to take the inside door panel offside front on my vw golf p97?


There are a series of 2.5 mm allen head screws around the perimeter of the panel, remove those with an allen wrench. Then pry the cover by the pull handle off(by the window switch) and there are 2 philips head screws. Remove those and the panel will come loose. Disconnect any connectors for the mirror switch and it's off.

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

Check the next procedure to Power Mirrors...

Diagnosis & Testing

The exterior mirror control switch receives power through circuit SBP12 (GN/RD) and ground through circuit GD143 (BK/VT). The exterior mirror control switch uses circuit CPM23 (GY) as the common circuit for both exterior mirror up/down and right/left movement.
  1. Possible Causes:
    Fuse 12 (7.5A) (SJB) An open in circuits CPM23 (GY), SBP12 (GN/RD) or GD143 (BK/VT A short to ground in circuit CPM23 (GY) A short to voltage in circuit CPM23 (GY) Exterior mirror control switch.
  2. Checking the voltage at the mirror switch:
    Key in OFF position. Disconnect: Exterior Mirror Control Switch C527. Key in ON position. Measure the voltage between ground and exterior mirror control switch C527-1, circuit SBP12 (GN/RD). Voltage should be greater than 10 volts.
  3. If voltage is greater than 10 volts, check that fuse 12 (7.5A) is OK. If OK, REPAIR circuit SBP12 (GN/RD) for an open.

Exterior Mirror Motor Synchronization

NOTE This procedure must be performed any time the power folding mirrors are manually folded in or out, or if the position of the mirror case has been moved without using the mirror control switch.
NOTE If the power folding mirrors are folded or unfolded continuously (6 to 10 cycles), the power lockout feature will disable the system for 2 minutes to prevent damage to the power fold motors. After 2 minutes have elapsed, normal operation will resume.
  1. Set the mirror control switch to the CENTER position.
  2. Use the mirror control switch (press rearward) to automatically cycle the power folding mirrors in and out 4 times.

    NOTE It may be necessary to cycle the power folding mirrors in or out up to 4 times before they are synchronized.
