Scion XD LED mirror install pics aplenty

**update: The 2nd gen TC side mirrors also fit, with the same look**

ahh the good ole junkyards

the Scion XD mirrors look just like the JDM blinker mirrors, or it could very well be the same thing.

This is a step by step hold your hand approach.

Those without the power package might need to refer back to eTimago's LED install DIY as reference.
>>> http://www.yarisworld.com/forums/showthread.php?t=6447 <<<

Tools (for the mirror install)
10 mm socket and ratchet (extension would help alot)
philips screwdriver, magnetic
xacto knife or razor

Step 0:

have it painted if it doesnt match your paint code.


Step 1:

pull out the door card and put it somewhere safe

(reference url >>> http://www.yarisworld.com/forums/showthread.php?t=2305 <<<



Step 2:

unclip the side mirror wiring, if you have the power package equipped.



Step 3:

use your 10mm socket and take out the 3 bolts holding the whole mirror assembly. we need to do this because we need to reuse that door bracket since the XD is a different size/shape. PLEASE dont let the mirror drop. take care of it when removing the bolts. use the magnet if you got something magnetic to carefully take out the bolts from the thread.



Step 4:

pull the whole assembly out



Step 5:

unscrew the 3 screws underneath the door mirror with your philips screwdriver.

Step 6:

You'll have to remove the outer clip wiring carefully with an xacto knife, if you want a clean install. you are going to reuse the clip, so cut as clean as possible.



my technique is to use an x-acto knife facing blade away from the wiring and leverage up. for a fast clean cut



Step 7:

there's a plastic piece where the bolt threads are, you can pull it away, there's no adhesive at all or anthing really to make it tight.
you can now pull out the wire from the housing with no issue.



Step 8:

do the reverse of step 7 and insert the XD mirrors.

Step 9:

rescrew the new mirrors into the housing



Step 10:

after the 3 screws are attached, and the housing is in one piece, reattached the clip "foreskin" back on



Step 11:

bolt everything up, and reclip the harness! The mirror adjustment controls work perfectly. Test it just in case.

Step 12:

wire up the LED blinkers http://www.yarisworld.com/forums/sho...6&postcount=48 <<<click here

Bam!









If you think the mirror itself from a yaris might fit the XD door mirror assembly, it wont fit. the clips are off by about a 1/2 inch.

Thanks Rockland.

Now to be specific, what year did you pull those mirrors from?

one from 2009, and the other from 2010..im very sure the XD side mirrors have never changed.

all Scion XD/Toyota Urban Cruiser(EU) side mirrors. there's no difference in them, really. I think some models dont have blinkers; but that's ultra rare.

use EBAY or car-part.com to get them cheap, or...if you want the part brand new its like somewhere about a couple hundred bucks, prepainted to XD colors.
