Yes powerfold mirrors retrolfit is possible. Need 2 powerfoold mirrors and the switch for the drivers door. Then car has to be reprogramed :)

Hi Nath, thinking about this for my '08 Mk6 Fiesta, but not bothered about linking the power fold to the igniion/alarm etc - happy to operate them on the switch only - would reprogramming the car/ECU still be required, or would new mirrors & switch suffice?
Cheers,

Hi guys, taking delivery of my mk7 fiesta zetec-s a week on sunday, too excited

the spec of the zetec-s I'm getting is 1.6 petrol, street pack, auto-headlights & wipers, voice control etc.
would have liked the city pack on the car more so the power fold mirrors ( not so bothered about the rear parking sensors) but i got it for a cracking price so i can't complain

so im wondering does retro-fitting power fold mirrors void manufacturers warranty as i would like to try and install them as some point!

Thanks timsh89

I'd like to say I cannot see why but knowing Ford they'll do anything to get out of a claim.
But then again I can't imagine you're dealer will ever notice, they'll assume it came from the factory like that.

In case of a warranty claim really they would have to prove the mirrors caused the fault (extremely unlikely) or try and get you to prove that it didn't cause it.

cheers for the speedy reply dude, looked at your video about taking off door card, and checking the fuse box, are all the parts that would be involved all ford parts (relay, leads) and how hard will it be to do, sorry bout all the questions total rookie!

and how would you go about re-programming of the ecu go in respect to this?

Also noticed that you have sprayed interior plastics any guides for this or know any business that offer this service?

Install is relatively easy, after the door cards have been removed unplug the old ones, unscrew the nut holding it to the door, install new one. Then install the switch as well that I mention in the vid.
As for reprogramming the ECU you'd need someone with access to Ford IDS and their laptop to make the changes.

I sprayed the plastics myself, though pretty much any bodyshop should give you a quote on it.

best if you know someone with IDS, it cheaper then £80/hr by Ford, and Ford will not activate the folding mirrors, or cruise control, ect! but it will take change on your warranty.

Ahhh that could be a problem, so it definitely has to be re-programmed even just to work it via the newer control?

I'll be honest I don't know. I didn't try and use the door switch before I activated it so I couldn't answer that.
Though there'd be little point fitting it if you didn't want it to open/close with key fob?

Hi Lez

Why they won't activate the folding mirrors?

They don't know how, and if they did they'd have to warranty it which they won't want to do.
