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

A 2nd wire goes from the new power fold switch/sensor switch, pin 3

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



post-37776-0-41029400-1374600765_thumb.j




to the blue plug in the Driver Door Module (DDM), pin number 14



post-37776-0-82189100-1374773108_thumb.j

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
