    Default Can the auto dimming door mirror be retro fitted?

    I've done a search on here but I can't find the answer. I'd like to fit it in my car but I'm not sure if it can be done. How could I tell if the wiring is already in place for me to just buy the mirror and fit it. I've got a 2008 vec SRi XP auto.

    Nice one.

    Yes it can, you will need a dimming mirror inside with 6 wires and a complete inside mirror loom not only 3 wires.

    So I'd have to have the rear view mirror too? Is that because the sensor in that mirror controls both? would I have to route the loom to the door mirror? or will that already be in place?

    Regards, Ste.

    yes you would need to have the rear view mirror too.. and it have to be the 6 wire one.. as sulten wrote.. (ive learned that the hardway...) if you have the correct roofloom, then doorloom, and mirror loom you are okay else you would have to make the wiring your self.. or change it...

    (been there done that.. changed all the loom...)
