    Default Help needed - Auto dim mirror & poss auto wipers

    Hi, please help (Grab a coffee, its a long thread)!

    As title, I have an auto dim mirror and loom, plus the rain sensor and loom. I wanted the mirror but came across a whole set from a member for a good price so though why not get it all, perhaps a future mod.

    1) Okay, first of all the mirror. I have tested in in the boot and it works so thats a start. Routing the wiring is easy. I understand you need to use the existing rear view mirror mount to mount the new auto dim mirror. I cant work out how to remove the stalk from the new mirror (See pics) and also how to remove the original mirror from the car. Im a little heavy handed and dont want to smash the screen (yet ! lol)

    Here is the new mirror :



    Here is the stalk (Notice the large metal circlip thing, its strong)



    How do I get the original mirror from its stalk ?
    Secondly, how do I get the stalk from the new mirror out?

    2) Now for Rain sensors.

    Ive heard that you need a new screen for the rain sensor as the screen has a metal mount for the sensor. As you can see, I actually have the sensor and mount so could I not bond this on ??





    Im not concerned about the cowling and the black out area, I can mod it to make it fit easily....

    3) Thirdly, What is the plug below in yellow ? (Stu4t took this pic, hope you dont mind me using it !!)



    Reason I ask is I have it for the auto wipers as pictured below, but my car already has this wire fitted, so do you think most of the auto wiper wiring is already in the car ?? Or am I hopefull ? Im guessing the 1st little plug will be for the rear courtesy light...





    Oh, thats not my carpet or rug ok !!!

    Can you believe im fussing with this, when there is a part VXR bodykit in the garage lol

    Thanks all, hope you can help !!

    ive removed the other thread.

    Well you remove the mirror from the Screen not by the "coupling" (or whats it called)

    yes you can bond it back on the screen.. and fit your rainsensor..

    But dont you miss the cabel for the mirror itself.. as that goes to where the "red" circel is.. and i cant see that cabel on your pictures.

    Sorry, that cable is in the boot of the car !

    I was hoping I could leave the mirror mount stuck to the screen as in the past, they always kept falling off once removed and re-stuck!!
