Recall id # 75947 - visibility:glass, side/rear driver side door window is falling out place again. Previous recall when it was repaired for the same issue was in 2008. Summary: Toyota is recalling 662,178 my 2003-2004 Corolla, Corolla matrix and Pontiac vibe vehicles equipped with power windows. The driver and front passenger door glass bolts may loosen and come off, causing the door glass to separate from the window regulator. Due to the components becoming loose and possibly rattling, an abnormal noise may be heard from the driver and /or front passenger door when operating the power windows.

The driver side window in my 03 Toyota Corolla collapsed and shattered. This after a recall was done a year ago for the exact same thing (campaign 08V162000). Neither the dealer nor Toyota would pay to repair the window saying they wouldn't provide warranty on the recall since it had been 13 months since the recall was performed. In fact the dealer wanted $800 to repair the window which I had fixed at a glass shop for $130. Fortunately, my son who was driving wasn't hurt.

2003 Toyota Corolla problems with the window. Consumer states that there is a recall for this problem. Consumer states that the window is not balanced with the tracks for the automatic switch which makes the window go up and down. The dealer told the consumer if the bolts were causing the problem, then it would not be covered under the recall.

Driver's side visor when deployed forward collides with rear view mirror. This causes rear view mirror to change position rendering an improper rear view. Mirror can not be adjusted back to proper position due to leverage applied by this visor position. Visor then has to be changed to tilt back toward driver leaving a visor edge to contact the driver's forehead in the event of rapid deceleration, not to mention having offending glare return momentarily while visor is shifted from front tilt to rear tilt position. This in combination with having to readjust the rear view mirror causes unnecessary and dangerous distraction for the driver. This has high potential for an accident during "combat" driving situations, and East coast highways are replete with that! the visor needs to be redesigned to clear the rear view mirror in all positions. Previous Corolla models have a portion of the visor corner removed to do just that. This model year does not. This needs to be addressed as soon as possible! this existing situation is especially dangerous for young drivers with limited road experience!
