    Default Interchange Parts Lists?



    I can't imagine such a thing doesn't exist but haven't had much luck finding anything either. All I'm looking for is any Toyota exterior mirrors that are bolt-on replacements for my stock ones. I can't believe that Toyota changed the mount on every make and model so it seems as though a Taco, Rav4, or Corolla for that matter would be interchangeable. Any insight would be appreciated, the 4Runner mirrors are simply too big and I want something smaller.

    sadly from what i have seen they do change things like that about every year or 2 and alomst every vehicle is different (makes you spend more money to get parts) but if you can you get a shape and dimension of your mounting area that might help to do manual comparisons maybe something from another will fit or maybe from an older yota will be close enough that it will fit

    Try these Chris:

    This isn't an easy one. I was all over the internet looking for 'Racing' and 'Euro' style mirrors. Seems like the 4Runner side mirrors that you don't like, no one has a problem with. If I had to guess, I would say that maybe the same year Lexus or LC has a crossover mirror, but you may have to call someone in the parts department to find out for sure. Not saying that the mirrors wouldn't be the same size, either....

    As an option, you may want to go to Stevinson's East , sweet talk the parts guy, and wander around the yard looking at various rigs they have for sale to see what may work and fit, with a replacement 4Runner side mirror in hand.

    take them off. if you ever need to look in your "mirror" just hold them out the window- look around- pull them back in.

    You wouldn't believe how hard it is to find after market mirrors for these. I spent about an hour looking around on the internet the other day for Chris and couldn't even find a really decent assortment of after market mirrors. Replacement mirrors all over the place....same size, same problem...
