    Default Replacement door mirror glass?

    I was after a replacement door mirro glass for my Vectra so the other whilst in a scrappies they had a 58plate vectra SRI in so i popped the mirror glass off thinking it would be the same as my 2008 vectra elite.

    But on removing the mirror glass from my elite it turns out i have a extra plug compared to the SRI glass.

    The SRI mirror just has two little wires on it but the Elite has two little wires plus a black plug that connects to a wire coming out the door mirror.

    Any ideas what this extra plug is for?

    does your old glass have a bit of a tint in it?

    Erm, not sure. I will tell you in about 30minutes when the Mrs comes home for lunch in it.

    It does have a slightly different surround around the glass though, the SRI glass is a complete mirror glass and the one on my elite has a bit of plastic trim all around the glass.

    Well you learn something new everyday. Is the passengers side auto dimming as well as the glass on passengers side seems different?

    i think auto-dip are engaged when the car is put into reverse and the wing mirrors will dip down automatically to allow easier parking
