And could you tell me the part numbers for the mirror glass, both sides? I've got some JDM folding mirrors but I need some left hand drive glass to make them useable.



Lithuania is left hand drive, isn't it?


ACTually, I ran into this same problem. I don't think it's an issue for taller drivers, but for shorter people, the RHD mirrors don't work very well. See, I installed my RHD power folding mirrors and came across the same problem. The driver's side mirror had to be angled to the far left (maybe it was far right, I forget), to be able to see behind me, and the passenger-side mirror was just useless.

Anyway, I thought the same thing you did, that the glass just needed to be switched. So I actually cut my own mirror glass out of larger mirrors (Dremel + diamond cutoff blade) hoping that would solve it. No such luck. I still couldn't see out of the passenger side mirror.

SO! It turns out that on RHD cars, the angle of the mirror mounting bracket is different, hence, you can't get the mirrors to be angled correctly without a pair of LHD folding (not necessarily power folding) mirrors. Here's a diagram of what I'm talking about:

http://discodan.org/gfx/celica/mirrorangle.gif

I got mine from Germany for about $100 shipped. Stripped the interior of both mirrors, cut a little metal for a perfect fit, and voila! LHD power folding mirrors!

Oh, and here's the best part. After all the trouble I went through to cut the mirror glass to LHD specifications, I found out once I received the mirrors from Germany that in LHD and RHD countries (except the US, obviously) the mirror glass is convex on both mirrors, whereas in the US, we've got flat glass on the driver's side mirror, and convex glass on the passenger side.

Synopsis: If you want your power-folding mirrors to work as LHD mirrors, you're going to need the whole LHD mirror assembly from a LHD car.

The end.

clear side markers

Postby lamard » Thu Sep 21, 2006 2:30 am

i've read through this post and haven't found numbers for the clear side markers (turn signals) that are in the front bumper. does anyone have them or were they only aftermarket. this 1st toyota place is way better than ebay, much safer.

I think the clear blinker ligths are aftermarket only. If anyone would for me to look for part numbers let me know, I'd gladly help if I can.

I have a question since they are all piling up in here...I may as well ask:

When do your guys' corner lights actually light up? Mine dont when I have my lights turned on...or off for that matter.

Should they be on? What could the problem be? Connection Problem?

Your front corner lamps should be on when you turn the light switch to the second setting. Like turning on your running lights. If they don't come on, look at the bulbs and replace. Still not working check the sockets for the bulbs. Sometimes through the years the contacts get pushed out of the way. Simple fix, just get a small blade screwdriver and bend carefully back into place. If they are still not working, check the wiring to make sure everything is on the up and up.
