About Door Mirror Cable

The Avensis Toyota door mirror cable is a strong, plastic coated cable which is attached to the wing mirror and is used to adjust the positioning of the mirror to enable the driver to see other objects on the road and assist with moving from one lane to another. 

In a manual door mirror operation, this flexible cable is attached to the door interior and is controlled by a lever to adjust the mirror. In an electric door mirror system, this cable consists of a series of wires that are covered with a protective plastic coating and is attached to the vehicles power supply. The Avensis Toyota door mirror cable in this case controls two motors which allow the mirror to move up and down and sideways.  As with the manual door mirrors, these are operated by a switch inside the vehicle.

If a manual Avensis Toyota door mirror cable is damaged, the driver will be unable to move the door mirror. The driver may also notice that the lever controlling the mirror moves more easily than usual. In the case of an electric mirror failure, this could be caused by a wiring fault.

Toyota Avensis trivia

  • The best ever year for the Toyota Avensis in terms of sales was in 2004 when it saw an impressive 142,535 units sold across Europe. There were a few positive blips after that, but sales gradually reduced until 2019, when only 897 were sold in Europe.
  • The name Avensis comes from the French word avancer, which means to advance. However, in Latin, the word Avensis also means to carry away.
  • The second-generation Toyota Avensis came fourth in the European Car of the Year award in 2004, but won the Semperit Irish Car of the Year, as well as the What Car? Best Family Car in both 2004 and 2005.
  • What Car? gave the Toyota Avensis an 82.3% reliability rating, slightly higher than the Toyota RAV4. That’s because although 19% of Avensis owners have reported a fault of some kind, these are largely related to bodywork, so the car was still driveable.
  • Although the 2008 third-generation Toyota Avensis was released at the height of the global recession, it still managed to get 8% of all sales in the mid-size car range.
