The outside mirrors have a nasty habit (on the RX) of getting "loose". If you can take your hand and wiggle the mirror (the housing, not the glass), you have that problem which would in turn make your mirror(s) vibrate during driving. You may want to look at my previous post about tightening the mirrors, but to sum it up on the bottom of the mirror there is a little plastic door that can be opened with a small screw driver. Insert your blade and CAREFULLY pop open that door. Inside you will find a small TORX head screw. Simply tighten the screw and you’re all set for another few months. This appears to happen only on mirrors that are constantly folded in (like daily or weekly basis). TORX screw drivers can be found at Sears or any other major seller of hand tools. Good Luck!
#7 of 7 Wobbly outside passenger mirror
Feb 01, 2012 (4:34 pm)
I've tried to tighten the passenger side outside mirror on my 2004 RX 330, but the screws appear to have stripped the receiving holes. They won't tighten and there are black plastic remnants on the screw threads. I can't believe I might have to replace the entire mirror because of some plastic nut. Any ideas? Does anyone know where I can find an exploded view of the mirror?
