Is it not just a straight swap? Or is it an automatic dimming mirror?

i know mine is a electric auto mirror with the sensor on the mirror so if he can find a power source? above the mirror like a electric sunroof you could run it off that or off the interior light wires it should be easy to do but it will after have the mirror mounts for it has it could be different that the original...So it should not be that hard to do if you no what your doing with a power source

I retrofitted this. You maybe lucky as most cars have the correct loom already. The wires are taped up in the headlining, you need to remove the interior light and the square bit around it, then you should see the loom taped between this opening and the start of the windscreen. If you can't see the taped wires then sorry you don't have the right loom. As for fitting the mirror the mount is different to the manual mirror. You will need a new windscreen/mount or to modify the new mirror to slot onto the original mount
