SIDE MIRROR

2008 Lexus ES 350

2008 Lexus ES 350 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 10000 miles

As you know when you put the tranmission in the rear position the 2 side mirrors tilt down for better view, and when you shift to drive position the side mirrors must go back to the original setting by driver.
My problem is with the driver side mirror. When I shifte to drive position the mirror does not go back to normal setting, instead it goeg all the way up and it shows the sky rather than the side of the car.
Please tell my what is the problem and how can I fix it?

Hi soroush hadavi,

Thank you for the donation.

Both mirrors works to tilt downwards but when returning to the memorised position, LH is overshooting. This indicates either the mirror itself is bad or the outer mirror control ECU is faulty.

I have sent a diagnostic file to you. Check it out and let me know if it is helpful.
