Hi lads and lasses

following the succes of my last question on the forum I have another....

On my avensis TSpirit i have a squareish/oblong shaped sensor that has come loose

from next to the interior mirror mount any ideas what its for ?

its not the wipers i think because they are still working on auto

is the wiper sensor inside the interior mirror platic mounting

i can see like a circle on the windscreen from inside the interior mirror mount casing

what is the best way to refit the loose sensor originaly... fitted with black double sided tape

would autoglass help to refit the sensor...they must do them daily on different motors

Hi I had exactly the same problem with my T spirit , never found out what the sensor was for, I presumed it was a sensor for the outside temperature as the heater seemed to change over to screen by itself when I reattached it , the only thing I found that worked was Uh Hu Glue takes a couple of hours to go off so you have to jam something in between the mirror to keep it in place , but it stopped on till I sold the car recently .

cheers will try uhu glue

and you recon its the temp sensor for the climate /heating control

Hi To all, my T-spirit is the same but only half off, Toyota told me to be very careful about what glue I used to stick it back but didn't say what to use:unsure:,they said it could damage the sensor but couldn't say what the sensor did:unsure:, so it stuck back with a little tape.:thumbsup:

Hi, I'm pretty sure the sensor is the GPS antenna...may be wrong!

no its not the rain sensor thats inside the interior mirror casing on the windscreen

this is a seperate sensor that was originally double sided taped to the screen

so i added a smigen of super glue to the d/sided tape to refix

So, you finally fixed it... while you still don't know what it is. :unsure:

After 16 posts of guesswork, why don't you post a couple of pictures.

From inside and outside.

Maybe then someone can give a hint what it really is.

Is it not the GPS sensor? Thats what the D4D Avensis Manual says anyway!

If it's the same as my 02 model, it's the satnav GPS antenna.
