Question about 2004 Toyota Camry

1 Answer

Drivers side power mirror has jerky motion. I have removed the mirror and 3 studs and 2 screws and still can't figure out how to get to the mechanism because it is not coming apart. Are there any cables or mechanism inside that can be lubricated to allow it to move smoothly. Still working fine but want to fix it before winter!

I bought a drivers side mirror for a 2008 dodge avenger. I looked at the old mirror and it has 2 studs holding it in and the new one has 3 studs.Did they send me the wrong mirror??


it sure sounds that way.make sure one of the studs is not broke in the hole and still stuck there or if the two studs line up in two of the 3 holes or maybe a stud is missing on new one.

Power Mirror Wiring Schematic 92 Buick Lesabre 1992 thru 1997 & More


Here is a schematic which my dad & I devised over the course of two hours for the power mirror wiring on our 1992 lesabre, as we couldn't find any wiring info to handle this issue.

http://www.iqmetals.com/else/lesabre/

That's our/my website, and that folder will let you see & get all of the pictures & diagrams

The wiring harness for the power mirror switch was acquired through Rock Auto, and the wire lettering scheme was embossed onto the plastic.
Here's a written breakout of the wires & their locations/purposes.

A= Ground
B= Common Left/Right Motion(Splits to both sides)
C= Common Up/Down Motion(Splits to both sides)
D= Left Side - Left/Right Motion
E= Left Side - Up/Down Motion
F= Right Side - Up/Down Motion
G= Right Side - Left/Right Motion
H= Positive 12V

Now Assuming that all of the power mirrors are wired & color coordinated the same, that would connect....
B -- Light Blue wire of Both Mirrors
C -- Green wire of Both Mirrors
D -- Gray wire of Drivers Side Mirror
E -- Dark Blue wire of Drivers Side Mirror
F -- Dark Blue wire of Passengers Side Mirror
G -- Gray wire of Passengers Side Mirror

In our circumstance we hooked up the power and ground inline with the power window Power(Pink) & Ground(Black) wires which are nearby in the door. The fuse/circuit should easily handle the minor load of power mirrors, even if you were using the windows and mirrors at the very same time... a rarity I do suppose.

Fix 2002 buick rendezvous side view mirror


it sounds like the mounting bolts embedded in the mirros housing were pulled out somewhat.You will not know untill the mirror is removed. If the studs that hold this mirror housing to the door are pulled out take a heat gun to get the studs warm and twist them back in flush. them apply JB Weld to the studs lowest part to the mirror housing so they stay secured

I need to know the distance that the drivers side mirror protrudes from the curvature of the door? and also if the outside drivers mirror is molded plastic into the frame of the car?


The outside mirrors attach to the door frame using 3 nuts that attach to studs that are part of the mirror. You can access the attachments by opening the door and removing the triangular shaped plastic trim piece, removing a piece of foam insulation and then you can see the three nuts to remove.
