External rear-view mirrors



  1. Electric regulation of rear-view mirrors: to take the mirror case aside.
  2. Now both fixing screws in a mirror leg become visible – to turn out them.
  3. To separate the multicontact plug directly on a mirror leg.
  4. Mechanical regulation of rear-view mirrors: to remove a door covering.
  5. To turn out the forward screws connecting the external panel of a door from boxes both back to weaken only a little.
  6. Now it is possible to stretch the mirror drive between panels.
  7. To take the mirror case aside, to turn out fixing screws in a mirror leg.
  8. At installation to use the corresponding fixing openings at doors.
  9. Driver's door: to use a carving opening in front below (if there are two) and behind above.
  10. Door of the forward passenger: to use a carving opening in front above and behind below and above.
  11. Again to establish a window frame.

 Help: you will find the description of work and control of the power window in the head "Devices and auxiliary devices".

At the left: removal of a mirror by means of a wide shovel. It is recommended to put on working gloves – in case glass will break.

On the right: adjustment of a free wheeling of the mechanical drive of a rear-view mirror can be carried out, turning adjusting screws at the removed castors with a longitudinal nakatka.

Replacement of a mirror

Glasses of mirrors keep both in electrically, and in mechanically adjustable mirrors only on latches. Removal:


  1. To put on working gloves in case glass will break.
  2. To insert from below the wide pallet or a plastic plate under glass of a mirror and to take out it from latches.
  3. If necessary to repeat the same operation from above.
  4. At installation to insert glass in directing and to press before fixing.
  5. In gloves to press the middle of glass.

Adjustment of the drive of a mirror

Driving cables of mechanical regulation of mirrors can be established so that there was no too big free wheeling of adjusting castors. For this purpose very small screw-driver will be required.


  1. To remove castors with a longitudinal nakatka of the mechanism of regulation of external rear-view mirrors in the direction up, if necessary to help a screw-driver.
  2. For the driving direction (up/down; to the right/on the left) answer always two located the friend opposite to the friend of the screw. At one of them left, at another the right carving.
  3. Regulation: carefully to turn the A1 screw to the right, to those small resistance will not be felt yet.
  4. To turn the A2 screw to the left, to those small resistance will not be felt yet.
  5. Too most to repeat with bolts of B1 and B2.
  6. To check correctness of installation: the mirror is easily regulated, but the free wheeling remains maximum.

 Helps: if glass of an external mirror shivers during a trip, so the adjusting mechanism is installed too freely – to dozatyanut.

Too legkokhodny regulation of mirrors leads to that already insignificant touches a sleeve to castors with a longitudinal nakatka change the provision of mirrors. In that case it is necessary to establish it a little more tightly.
