Tips for Taking Care of Your Toyota Tundra Mirror
One of the major banes of driving large pick-up trucks is going through highways with lots of other vehicles around. They pass beside you at different speeds, sometimes even surprising you. This lack of a better view so to speak can be remedied by an effective Toyota Tundra mirror. The mirror extends from the front window to give you a clear view of the vehicles passing through your left and right. But what would its use be if you take it for granted? The mirror can accumulate dirt and smudges while its wirings can turn faulty. Learn to keep it working perfectly by following some of our tips. Here's a list of some dos for taking care of your Toyota Tundra mirror.
- Check of the stability of the Toyota Tundra mirror assembly.
Every once in a while, check for the stability of your truck's mirror assembly. You can do so by firmly holding it and giving it a gentle nudge. Try to feel if it is still firmly mounted on the door. If it feels a little loose, you can look for the mounting points and retighten the screws. This will keep the mirror from any unnecessary movements while you are travelling. Keep in mind that any dangling parts can pose a hazard if not properly addressed.
- Inspect the wirings on your truck's mirror.
Modern trucks are now equipped with power mirrors. This allows the driver to adjust the mirrors from the convenience of the driver's seat. However, this also means that the assembly is prone to electronic failures. To avoid this from happening, you should regularly check how to electronic controls respond to you. If something seems wrong, have the wirings and mechanisms checked and repaired.
- Give your mirror a good wash and scrub.
Your Toyota Tundra mirror will not stay clear and shiny if you do not wash it. Direct a stream of clean water to the mirror to remove light layers of dirt and loosen any remaining debris. You then proceed to gently scrubbing it with a sponge or wash mitt. The mirror should be shiny and clear after that treatment.
