    Default Fitting Power Folding Mirrors

    Hi, I know there have been various posts on here regarding these and a how to but as I don't think I have the correct wiring, I just wondered if it would be possible fit the motors on some sort of relay so that when the ignition was live, they came out and off, folded in? Just a thought if this could be possible?

    I probably wouldn't have even thought of fitting them but my car is currently having some paintwork done due to a gazebo blowing out of my neighbours garden and landing on my car . The hire car (DS3) has them I really fancy them now!!

    Thanks

    Thanks for the replies, I will have to double check if my car has the wiring when I get it back. I'm sure I read somewhere it would only have the correct wiring if it had electric seats?? I checked the rear door loom so that I can fit rear elecy windows and the wiring was there.

    Could I also ask as the option was dropped for the facelift, do the pre facelift motors/mirrors or the Astra H fit the facelift?

    Thanks again.

    I know that this was an option on the facelifts, my friend's 07 Design has the power folding mirrors.
    Speak to Andy.L, he'll know how to do them and where to get the wiring bits.

    Ive used facelift door wiring on mine to get folding mirrors....

    If you had memory seats, then its different door mirror bases..

    Thanks again for the replies. I have not got the memory seats, just what I have read on here. I will look further when I get it back, can't wait now! The Ds3 was ok for a few days but it's a bit boring now :-)

    Cheers

    Great stuff, sounds good! Did you get the door switch or do they work off the locking? Cheers.
