Anyone have the torque specs for the plate covering the mirror bolts as well as the mirror bolts themselves? OCD kicks in and it needs to been done right:bigthumb:
The torque spec for body parts are listed in a separate Toyota Body Specification Manual, not common anywhere but a body shop. And while I appreciate the precision you seek, and have mild OCD myself, the bolts for that plate go into plastic nuts - hand tight will be fine. The plate is not subjected to any stress, is not load-bearing, and uses the plastic nuts to prevent loosening from vibration.Anyone have the torque specs for the plate covering the mirror bolts as well as the mirror bolts themselves?

I totally agree about the plate covering the mirror bolts, but not the actual mirror bolts. Thiey do need to be tight as the mirror will be under stress when it is bumped or pushed in not to mention constant wind force. My fear is over tightening. Since the force of the mirror will be on the door panel and thin sheets inside there is a change for potential damage. I imagine this is in the repair manual somewhere I just must not have that section. Anyone have it?
