Rear View mirror 20 Series


Recommended Posts

Hi guys~~

I'm looking to get an auto-dimming rear view mirror..

and came across different ones..

 

One with what looks like a sensor on the back of the mirror (or a camera??), and one without..

 

Can anyone tell me what is actually is please??

 

Thanks~

It *may* be, but I can't be certain.. 

The one with the sensor thingy is from a 2012 3.5 GGH20W

The one without is from 2013 2.4 ANH20W

I'll take a look at the EPC.

 

Does the camera/sensor appear to be an OEM fit ? Professional ?

Or does it appear as an aftermarket part.

 

My guess it is a dashcam.

My guess is, my guess is wrong !

 

I found it an an obscure EPC drawing, but there is no description.

 

I am left wondering whether it is a sensor/camera for the pre collision system ?

I believe the PCS are rare, if that is what it is !

There is no mention of an auto dimming mirror in my Owners Manual, which is for the earlier Gen 1 models.

I also assume that any auto dimming mirror will need a 12 volt feed, so you will need to wire that into the headlining

Hi, while we are on the topic of rear view mirror, mine had became loose.

Wonder have anyone experienced the same or have tried to remove those plastic covers which covers the fixing?

As I don't want to force it and break anything, thanks.

You are right, on the alphards exported to china, they had to have auto headlamp dipping fitted, that big Boi incorporates a filter/lens to detect oncoming traffic and when within a certain range, will turn off high beams, it is setup for driving on the right hand side carriage way, so not sure if the lens setup would work on UK roads.

 

There is an anti glare mirror that has a small sensor on the inside face, that will detect headlamps behind you and auto flip the mirror to cut glare.
