Anyone Retrofitted Power Fold Mirrors?

72 posts in this topic

I'm thinking of fitting the power fold mirrors off an RS to my ST.

I have established that I need the mirrors with integrated puddle lights, a new switch for activating the mirrors and modified ELM to activate it all in the GEM

Was wondering if anyone has done it before or has a link to a guide. There is a guy over at focusstoc that has done it but his guide isn't very good

I think I heard of a few people doing it, but I dont believe I have seen any guides though...

Have a look in the Focus Guides section, there might be something bured somewhere?

My little how to, I have circled the pin locations in red, click the pictures for close ups.

you need to have front door modules for this to work,and obviously power fold mirror will need turning on with elm

1 wire goes from the mirror plug pin 8

How did you fit the wire into the holes? What sort of pins did you use or are they push fit?

I fitted mine this way as I only need to add the one wire :)

Like already stated you need to have front door modules for this to work, if you have global open/close windows you will have these modules fitted ,and obviously power fold mirror will need turning on with elm

1 wire goes from the mirror plug pin 8

Then fit the drivers power folding mirror and refit the trims

There is no need to do anything to the passenger side only fit the new power folding mirror

Then fit the RS power fold switch that's incorporated in the electric window / mirror switch is FINIS number 1693643 cost 44.28

I will have to look into this with more details on what these modules are because it could already be on the car, looking at some pics from when i took my door mirror off i can see the connector is missing 2 wires based on your pics john

Looking at pics from previous mods it seems i don't have the module but it seems i have the wiring, not sure tbh will have to double check the wiring colours on the schematics

Don't think the door module is here. However is that bit of wire wrapped in fabric tape for it? i don't remember if it was connected to anything.

These are the wiring from the door going to the mirror connector

Going back and forth comparing my wiring to yours i do think the wiring for global closing/opening is actually there. Do you by any chance know the part number for that door module and does the passenger side also require one?

Guys, can anyone tell me if the mirrors with puddle light (from RS i think) have powerold as standard? Can you get puddle lights without powerfold?

I got my hands on 8M51 17682 VB. Can anyone tell me if that has powerfold and how can i tell visually? Thanks
