Hello, and welcome to FixYa. Please allow me to asist you.

It sounds to me like you may have a bad 'mirror position sensor', which is built into the mirror. The only real way that this can be determined is by taking the vehicle to a Lexus dealership, and have the service department connect their scan tool to the car. They will be able to read the mirror sensor's poisiton and operating values on the scan tool.

In short, either the mirror sensor is bad, or the body control ECU may be bad; I really suggest taking thew car and gettingthe mirror values scanned, before I would invest in additional part purchases.

Where to add side mirrors on a 58 ford Fairlane


I've had the same quandary with my 59 Ford Custom 300 and the more of them I've looked at, the more I've noticed it seems to be personal preference. Mine are currently positioned just to the side of dead center on the top and directly across from the hood cowl side to side. I've seen some positioned on the fender just ahead of the doors or even on the doors to about a third of the way down the fender. I'm getting ready to move mine rearward, I like the look. It's all your vision, my friend. Good luck!

Passenger mirror not folding in


Grab the passenger mirror with both hands. Fold the mirror all the way forward, all the way back and then back to the home position. Sometimes the mirror will get off track if it has been bumped or moved out of place manually.

How do you replace the exterior mirror glass on a 2007 chevy tahoe. I have the the replacement glass portion but not sure how to release the broken portion from the mirror motor. Thanks for any info!


i just replaced the passenger side on mine and this is what i did.

1. on the back side of the mirror housing is a half moon shaped plastic piece. gently remove that from the housing, exposing a portion of the back side of the mirror.

2. disconnect the two wires (remember rt and lf). carefully, with a pry tool, apply pressure on the center of the back side of the mirror, it will pop loose.

3. once the mirror is off there should be a round plastic piece attached to the back side of the mirror. on the passenger side there is a tab in the upper left side. lift up on the tab and slide the plastic piece down...it should slide off.

4. once you have the plastic piece off it goes on the back of the new mirror in the opposite way. you line up the four cross tabs and slide the mirror up until the tab grabs it.

5. put the mirror back in the housing by lining the circle (on back side center of mirror plate) with the center of the mirror housing. genlty apply pressure on the center of the mirror (i had to hit it firmly with the palm of my hand) unitl it snaps into place.

6. once it snaps into place you can reconnect the two wires to the back of the mirror and install the back side plastic housing......DONE

Removal of the mirrors plastic body from the truck


I did the same thing with my car. there is a plastic cover inside the door where the mirror is. Pop off the cap and you can then take off the mirror. ONly problem is you can not change just the mirror you have to replace the body too. At least thats the way it was on my car. Dealer part was $137 at the time and it wont be painted.

Need to replace Mirror Assembly, 03 suburban


Your going to have to remove the inside door panel to get to the three bolts that hold the out side mirror assembly. Once you have the door panel off you'll see the three bolts that hold the mirror assembly, just un-bolt and un-clip the wire harness to the electric/heated mirror. To install the new mirror assembly, just do everything in reveres. Go to Auto Zone and by extra door panel clips, there is a good chance of breaking some of the retainer clips and Auto Zone will have the step by step instructions to replacing the mirror assembly and the removal to the door panel. Good luck and keep me posted. Be glad to help.

Installing a Nissan Sentra Passenger Side Manual Non Folding Mirror.


had to install a driver side non folding mirror, fairly simply to say the least. There's a cover on the interior of the door, near the window, remove the cover, remove the 3 screws, need i believe a 10mm socket. If a power window, unhook the circuit. Replace new mirror.
