Hi

Nathans guide is very good but it may help if people know where the clips are. The green circles are "plastic" clips, and the red squares are the metal spring clips, knowing the location may remove some uncertantly where to leverage.

And as a helpful hint check the door opening cables is still correctly attatched BEFORE you pop it all back together otherwise you get at least two tries to remove the door card...

Another update after meeing Nathan.

My Econetic has two plastic splitting screw / bolt type fastners as well as poppers on each door, located on the lower corner furthest away from the hinge. Nathan 's Zetec didn't have them (and in fact had slimmer door cards) but they too need removing, and when you put them back they don't tighten up muich either.

Not trying to steal Nathans thunder but He and I did this last weekend.

Eight, Chances are the door connector behind the card has them but you also need to check the bit by the hinge, Lez posted a photos before - http://www.fordownersclub.com/forums/topic/14688-speaker-size-and-folding-mirrors-on-mk7-zs/page__view__findpost__p__172880 and that the relays are in place.

He had a 2009 1.4 TDCI model, Nathan and I have 2010 1.6 TDCI models (although different spec's) and they woeked once the computer was updated and the parts fitted

Just curious, how easy / time consuming is it to get the mirrors activated?

Ah cool I suppose this May solve the issues with people knocking my mirrors around up in the dales when it's parked up on those tiny roads (work risk!) when I forget to fold them in!

But do you need additional machinery or just power folding mirrors to do the retrofit ?
