Porsche 914 & 914/6 Interior (Rear View) Mirrors

Large or Small?

The Porsche 914 and Porsche 914/6 rear view mirrors are mounted directly to the windshield. They have a simple ball-in-socket pivot design and a night setting toggle. Normal problems experienced with the interior mirrors include wear to the glass backing, pivot loosening resulting in annoying mirror vibration and adhesive failure causing the mirror to fall off the windshield. The pictures to the right compare the early and later style mirrors (later style shown on top in each picture). As you can see, the mirrors had a growth spurt between the 1972 and 1973 model year production runs despite sharing the same part number.
