Sirion Faulty Wing-mirror


Firstly, Hi to everyone - I'm a newbie.

I'm having problems with my passenger side electric wing-mirror and wondered if anyone can help?

I've already taken the car to a Daihatsu garage and they told me the motor inside the mirror has been knocked out of alignment (most likely been bumped by somebody) and it doesn't open or close properly now. It keeps getting stuck in a repetitive motion every time I turn the mirrors on/off, it's even started happening when I turn the ignition on - without me even touching the button that operates them.

Has anyone else had problems with their electric mirrors? Can anyone offer any advice as to a) quick fix for this? or b) how I take the mirror apart without damaging anything?

I've been quoted £250 just for a new mirror, so understandably I want to avoid replacing it, if I can help it! I'd rather take it apart and fix it myself.

Also, leading onto the question...Does anyone have a manual for this car?? (Sirion SL) Smile

Sirion mirror!

2003 Sirion SL 1300. And I love it.
Don't like the new shape much.

Try to get a second have one from the Breakers if you need to - There are some around on the Internet.
The small plastic cover inside the door behind the mirror comes off pretty easily and then you can get to the screws to remove the mirror (Watch the wires of course)
It's not easy ok. Slowly Slowly catchee Monkey!

Send me your E Mail in private message if you wish.
I have a workshop manual for the Sirion and the YRV )(K3 AND EJ engines and bodywork/ electrics etc)
If fact anyone reading this who needs a manual.
I will see if it copys ok and then send it to you for cost ok
I reckon I'm gonna regret this offer.

Cheers, BobF.
