    Default Dodgy Wing Mirrors??

    Im now on my second SRi and I habe noticed that a strange thing happens with the wing mirrors on both.

    When I move the drivers side mirror, the passengers one moves aswell but in opposites e.g both move out, both move in etc.

    Has anyone else noticed this?

    Is it a major problem or just a nuicance?

    As soon as I saw the subject header I guessed what the question was going to be.

    Now if you really had wing mirrors (as opposed to door mirrors), then that would be dodgy

    Does this on mine too, I find it useful when dipping mirrors to reverse as you can drop both mirrors together to reverse and raise both back up when done!

    Mines a 2004 04 LS & has this feature, just remember to adjust the drivers side 1st, then the passengers side.

    if the mrs gets in & moves the seat forward then adjusts the drivers mirror, the passenger one moves so it should be in the ideal place. then you get in, move the seat back, then readjust the drivers mirror & hey presto, all normal again, simples!
