Folding Door Mirrors

Hi All,

I've currently got an 07 Plate Vector Sport with the facelift dash. It's got the manually folding mirrors. For a while I've wanted to add the electrically folding mirrors. I've been offered the door mirrors (LH: 12833414 RH: 12833421 and interior switch:12801063) at a decent price so am seriously thinking about adding this.

I realise that Tech II will be needed to make the car aware of the electric door mirrors. Is there anything else I'll need? Will the required wiring already be in place? Will the door modules just need to be reprogrammed via Tech II to tell them they've now got electric door mirrors instead of manual?

All help/advice appreciated before I take the plunge and buy the parts...

Many Thanks... James

Hi Mogwye

I don't suppose you took any photo's of what you did? To make an uber useful "how to" by any chance?

What's the DCM? Is there one for each side? If not, how did you get the two wires from the passenger side mirror all the way over to the DCM (depending on where it actually is!!)? or vice versa if the DCM is on the passenger side in any case....
This is really useful - many thanks.

Just to check my understanding then - when connecting in the two wires to each DCM in each door panel, I'm wondering if Tech 2 is needed at all, as the DCM aren't being changed.... just having an extra couple of wires plugged into them!

Just trying to be as tight as possible, and not have to visit the non-existent main dealers unless I really, really have to! Fingers crossed that my 2005 has the fuller loom in any case, and they just need plugging in and activating at worst.
