Installation of Landcruiser 70 Series Mirrors

Posted by Taurus Towing Team on

Since launching our 70 Series manual & electric towing mirrors we have had lots of inquiries regarding the compatibility and installation. So below we have listed some Fitment Facts to answer your questions:


  • All Taurus Towing Mirrors come with detailed step by step instructions
  • Taurus Towing Mirrors for 70 series with it all models from 1984 to current.
  • All 70 series with OE Strap mirrors does not require drilling for the manual Taurus Towing Mirrors. If you chose electric, then a 12mm hole will need to be drilled in the door panel for the wiring harness.
  • Most 76 & 78 series do not have Strap mirrors and will require two holes drilled for the bottom of the Taurus Towing Mirror base and a third hole if you choose electric. If you don’t feel comfortable drilling holes in your door, we recommend a professional installer.
  • Some earlier 70 series container a Quarter port window. When the Taurus Towing Mirrors are installed it may restrict opening that window port.
  • The power adjustment controller will fit directly to dash blanking panel for late model 70 series. For earlier models we supply a supporting bracket to fit behind the blanking panel in the dash for a snug fit.
  • In some 70 series from 2017 onwards, may require further drilling of the bolt holes to align with the base.
  • Taurus Towing Mirrors with the Electric wiring harness will need to be hard wired to the vehicle, we do recommend the wiring be installed by a qualified auto electrician.

We hope this has help clear your questions, however if we missed something, please email us and we will get back to you with the answer promptly.
