    Default Wooo Hooo - I have Electric Folding Mirrors..



    Well almost..

    I have fitted the drivers side mirror and the two door modules (VX ordered the wrong door mirror, so will have to wait for that), but I find that the mirror sometimes sticks when trying to fold in. I think this has something to do with the wires for the heated mirror as if I take the mirror off it folds every time.

    Is there a need for the wires to go a certain way?

    Also, the drivers switch is now way out! I thought that the mirror folding was just going to be the wrong way around but my windows are now backwards (should have realised this as the DDM would be on the left)??

    Has anybody tried to get VX to tech2 this free of charge? They should really be selling UK modules in the UK.

    May try it on at VX see what happens...

    Just over £300, with trade discount and buying one of the mirrors off Andyvec (probably be about £350 otherwise).

    This excludes any tech2 costs.

    The two door modules cost £135 and may not be required on some cars..

    If anyones interested in doing this it is worth checking the numbers on your door modules before ordering anything..

    They should be:

    13193366 & 13193367

    If you have these you'll only need the mirror casings and a tech2.

    You'll need to get a Tech 2 - no other way - to get the door control to work the correct way. If you bought the majority of the parts through your dealer then maybe they'll do the Tech 2 FOC?

    Well done BTW! Not a cheap mod but a nice mod! I love mine!

    Always wanted foldy mirrors..

    I got all the parts bar the drivers mirror from the stealer and also the rear interior light so will ask..

    Just wish my car had the proper loom so I could do the rear electric window upgrade.. Maybe one sunny day when I'm feeling brave I may have another look..

    Yep, expensive for what it is.. have to see if I can sell the old mirrors on ebay and do a bit of overtime to pay the rest off...Good fun though .

    It was either the mirrors or the exhaust and the mirrors just edged it..

    Go to a different dealer and say "my windows have gone mad!" they will sort under warranty.
