Question about Toyota RAV4

1 Answer

I have a Toyota Revo GLX, model 2001 with powered side mirror. From stored position (folded on the side of the window) to open position ( when you are going to use the side mirror), there is a clicking and will lock on this position. In my case, it does not lock anymore and it is loose. that is why while driving it is being folded by the wind. The hydraulic for shifting the view of the side mirror is working good and no problem at. How can I fix this locking gear, if this is what they call it, of my side mirror? I don't even know how to remove the mirror itself so that I can see inside the what really happened. But as I can see over the small space between the mirror and the casing, there is a loose washer lying around inside. By the way, my car model is not the list, but it is a Revo GLX from Toyota

Tie a piece of string to the outside of your tow mirror. Run the string to the hood hinge on that side. Keep it from collapsing.

Hi MVN, Seems that the washer is from the securing hollow mount. There should be a nut somewhere inside too. The mirror is electrically operated not hydrolic. The mirror will probably break if you try to remove it from the housing, but as to save it you will have to do so anyway, you may as well try. If you are successful, you can reattach it using double sided mirror tape, but make sure it is a good quality tape. Adjust it to the maximum and insert a flat blade between it and the mounting and try un-clipping it. If it does not break you should be able to replace and lock the housing back in place, but it will be difficult. To replace the mirror you will need to remove the door panel and the small cover on the inside of the door adjacent to the mirror mount. It clips into place and is gently levered off. Inside are three screws holding the assembly in place. Disconnect the electrics inside the door panel and then remove the screws. Fit back the replacement and reassemble. Regards John

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!

I have a lhd grand cherokee and ive lost positive feed to passenger side electric windows and folding door mirror checked fuses no fuse for electric windows


There is only one fuse for all power window and power mirror operation (Fuse 12 (50A) in under hood fuse panel). If the passenger side window and mirror functions are not working, and you have verified that there is no power going to the passenger door module (pin 1 of C1 connector), then there is a wiring issue in the harness.

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.
  3. When an audible popping sound is heard, the power folding mirror motors are synchronized.
    NOTE It may be necessary to cycle the power folding mirrors in or out up to 4 times before they are synchronized.

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.
