Hey guys!

This kinda a stupid question :roll:

What do you call that small mirror that sits at the front of the vehicle near the headlight that lets you see the side of your fender (note: not the side view mirror). I got mine broken by some @*&%*$! idiots *please excuse the blasphemy* on the road and need to have it replaced.

The thing is the dealer quoted some unreasonable amount for it, so I'm just wondering whether I could find better deals somewhere else.

Thanks!

p/s: you can see the small mirror that I'm referring in the pic below

I've seen them on ebay. Do a search on ebay and you might find them. I think they come in black. If i can find it, i'll post the link for you. If you can't find anything on ebay, as sometimes these mirrors are sold out, just google it. You might find an online store that carries them. Hope that helps :)

I think it's called a Parking or Sport Mirror.

You can put this in your search on Ebay and see what it comes up with.

I guess it might be that your RAV4 is a Japanese version. In Japan they use these side mirrors. Or, someone went on a RAV4 Japanese website and saw them, and decided to install them. They make great fender benders happen. :lol:
Yup, mine is a CBU from Japan (or a JDM RAV4 some might say). I noticed in the UK that they don't have this small mirror (though lots of RAV4 around!).

I was thinking of completely removing it but then there are two gaping holes where the mounting sits. That wouldn't look good at all.

Will try to look for a Parking or Sport mirror on the web. Hope something will come up. Let me know if you have any luck with ebay too.

Thanks peeps!

Hi Myrav4,
You are right we don,t have the "sports mirror" on UK Rav4,s. As far as I am aware they are only on Japanese home market motors. You can always reconise an "import" as they always leave that mirror on the front wing. I think that in Japan they are madatory on all motors.

MYRAV4,

Firstly, nice to meet see from Malaysia on R4W (Apa Khabar!).

You can try givingWing Hin Auto at Jalan Loke Yew. They specialise in Toyota Genuine Parts/ Accessories from around the world. Or, you can try some of the "Kedai potong" around the country.

*"Kedai potong"= Chop shops/ Junkyard/ Second-hand parts shop in Bahasa Malaysia.

Damn, mine was stolen about 1 month ago and till now, I'm also having difficulty to source for one, amid reasonable price. I did check it out during my trip to Sabah where RAV 4 is aplenty, unfortunately no one keeps stock of this item. For special order, I was quoted RM200+ (non-OEM) and RM400+ (OEM) without paint!

Thus, I'm still contemplating of getting one as mine is only missing with the cover (the bloody thief could not find time to dismantle the whole thing) and I'm sure we can find one at "kedai potong" as per ToyotaFreak.
