    Default Autodim mirror for a permanently dim driver!!

    After deciding the best way to spend my Saturday morning would be scrappying, I am now the owner of an autodim mirror and couple of plugs for the loom. Cost me £5, which is not to be sniffed at!

    I didn't fancy dropping the headlining, call me a wuss if you like so bought a few metres of wire and made up my own loom. Plugged it in, told the REC it was present and tested it... voila!! IT WORKS

    Ran everything together, during which I managed to drop the ****** mirror, it hadn't broken though so ploughed on, plugged it all in and it... didn't work

    As I was only in it to the tune of a fiver, I decided to take it apart and fix it - turns out that if you drop an autodim mirror, one of the connectors pop off the glass. When this happens, the circuit isn't complete and it just flat out refuses to work. 10 minutes spent getting into the housing, 10 seconds to fix it, and it works... again

    Tomorrow I just need to plug it in, wire it up and put the boot back together. Nothing (for me) is ever simple!!
