Firstly there are no mirrors, they are prisms. They need to be completely disassembled and dried out AS SOON AS POSSIBLE by someone who KNOWS WHAT TO DO. Seeing your post was in December I hope that you have sourced a good repair agent in quick time.

How do I clean inside the 25mm lens - cleaned top & bottom, appears dirty inside


Some lens have a group at the end which can be unscrewed by the user. First determine if this is so by grasping the 1.25" barrel which goes into the focuser clamp, and applying moderate unscrewing effort. You may be able to gain access inside.

After that it is likely that glass is glued or strongly clamped in. Take the lens to a camera, binocular or telescope shop for advice.

Water in rear passenger footwells


I have had water intermittently in the right rear trunk area (below the battery) every since an rear end accident. The dealer tells me that there is a vent back there that gets clogged up or opened up and lets water get in there. Not sure that I believe that, but that's the best explanation that they could give me.

I just noticed a water retention problem with my 2010 Mitsubishi Endeavor. When it rains, especially a hard downpour, water quickly collects somewhere inside what appears to be the driver's side panels. ...


Replace the window seals on the doors friend. Get them from the dealership for that vehicle, roll the windows down, pull the old seals, minding not to lose the clips, put the clips on the new wipers and place them in the slots.

"OE" error message appearing at end of rinse cycle before spin


on the front lower left there is a panel. Pry it open from the top. Unscrew the large black round cap. Be prepared for water to rush out. There is a trap to clean out. To the left there is a rubber hose with a plug in the end. Remove plug and see if hose is clogged. Clean it out. Replace and it should run. If not, try blowing through the discharge hose in the back to make sure all is clear. If not??

Binocular repair


Yes they can be but need to be completely taken apart and cleaned. The salt will corrode any metal parts such as screws etc. The water may have left a coating on the internal glass services. Any impurities in the water may cause fungus to grow. Professionally done this will cost a tidy sum so a quote would be best. The warranty wouldn't cover water immersion if they are not meant to be waterproof. You could ask but Minolta no longer make binoculars and have forwarded on their servicing here is the web address
http://ca.konicaminolta.com/support/contact/binoculars/

You may find that for the cost of repair you can purchase a replacement set. Minolta binoculars are heavily discounted now. For sentimental reasons I have paid more than a binocular is worth to have it repaired.

If you are going to buy a new set and still want to try at home....BE ADVISED this may RUIN the alignment and you should ONLY DO IT if you are going to replace them and DO NOT CARE if they end up in the rubbish bin. THIS IS A LAST RESORT THROW AWAY FIX.

Try and unscrew the objective barrels, the ones with the large lens. If they come off you should have access to the inside. If they don't unscrew easily stop. You will damage them. Flush them out with clean water and let them dry naturally. Avoid letting them dry where dust can enter the inside. This may clear the salt from inside them, Depends on how long since they were dropped into the water. The salt may have caused damage to the glass coatings. When dry, screw the barrels back on. You may end up with a double image. This may be able to be corrected by loosening or tightening the barrels. THIS IS A HACK FIX AND YOU SHOULD ONLY DO IT IF THE COST TO REPAIR IS TOO EXPENSIVE AND YOU ARE GOING TO REPLACE THEM.
