Auto Dipping Interior Mirror

Recommended Posts

After the success in fitting Cruise to my 2015 Yaris hybrid does anyone know if the wiring is in the headlining to connect a auto dipping mirror from a better spec Yaris ?

87810-0D080 (also fits the verso)

the cheapest one i can find

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/2014-TOYOTA-YARIS-INTERIOR-REAR-VIEW-MIRROR-87810-0D080/133143535124?hash=item1efff91e14:g:tMsAAOSwY4pdVXTP

it connects up with a 5 pin connector

the small trim that goes over the top to hide the wires is 87818-33010

 

only thing i can't tell you are if the mounts are different

I have found, that since the advent of retina searing headlights, the auto-dipping mirror in my Yaris is not very effective for them. I wish it had a manually operated mirror. You know like those from bygone days which worked perfectly well!

Yes, I was going to post the same exact same point.

I occasionally drive an Auris without the dimming mirror, and sometimes one with the factory-fitted auto dimming mirror. 

It happens too often that a following car has badly adjusted headlights, even some brand new cars, (often a Mazda CX5, MINI, Qashqai etc.) , or has pointlessly, distractingly intense, daytime running LEDs (e.g. some Mercedes).  If it is not night time, I have no means to counter these via the auto mirror, which does not respond at all until the ambient light is darker still. 

I prefer the manual mirror.

Maybe because the Excel has rear tint its more effective, what about using the button in the middle to manual dim the mirror ?

Our Excel doesn't have rear tints.  Good job too, as I personally think they're a daft idea.

Our Fiat500 we used to have, had a far better rear-view auto-dipping mirror than ours in the Yaris Excel.  This one doesn't dip enough at all, and given the choice and the opportunity, I'd have swapped them over before buying the Excel.

Please explain Bob.

All there is in the middle is the power switch. A green on light to it's left and the light sensor to it's right.

Thanks all as mine does not have the rear tints only being a Icon hybrid sounds like I might be better sticking with my manumatic diiping mirror.

What are rear tinted windows actually for?

Rearview mirror automatically dimming with headlights behind is a brilliant idea.

Privacy, reducing temperature inside the car, it reduces night time glare

Yes it is Mick. But, as I wrote, considerably less effective with the current fetish of ever increasing headlight output intensity!
