    GQ DX Mirror Replacement

    Hi All,

    I've just completed a mirror replacement for my 1994 GQ DX Patrol. Hopefully the info below can help someone! Please reply if you have any questions.


    Parts used -

    - Toyota Mirror Assembly (genuine), Outer, Right Hand - Part No 87910-60142 (price paid - $44, eBay (got lucky with this one))

    - Toyota Mirror Assembly, Outer (genuine), Left Hand - Part No 87940-60273 (price paid - $174, eBay)

    Note - these are convex (2007+ mirrors).



    If searching eBay etc for these parts, try any of these keywords -

    87910-60142
    87940-60273
    LANDCRUISER VDJ LH DOOR MIRROR GENUINE TOYOTA
    LH Mirror Landcruiser VDJ78, VDJ79, VDJ76
    RH Mirror Landcruiser VDJ78, VDJ79, VDJ76



    Tools used -

    - Large phillips screwdriver



    Modifications Required -

    - NONE.



    Steps -

    Remove existing mirror - two phillips head screws (keep, re-use on next step)

    Install new mirror - two phillips head screws



    Personal rating of Modification -

    10/10 - The fit is extremely close, see 2nd image. Note, no modifications are required at all. The view compared to standard is improved 100x over. In my opinion these also look really good/standard on a GQ.

    Next best thing to Safari Mirrors, but they look much better! I wasn't lucky enough to get one at such a cheap price, but still worth it.
    It makes a huge difference to be able to see whats out the back lol

    It's a great mod, thanks to Warehouseno27 for posting it on Patrol4x4 and now here.

    I did this recently myself as posted in my Patrol thread.

    Could the same mirrors be fitted using the Nissan mirror extenders, I need to use them to see past the pod which is wider than the cab. Mirror bolted from underneath.

    I got the glass replaced recently in one of my wing mirrors from the local glazier and when pricing new ones, the original Nissan extenders are cheap as chips. From memory, less than $20 each.
