I think he had standard electric mirrors(if you look at pic 4 on the guide, the piece of trim he is removing is the one for the electric mirror switch(and not the one with the wee manual joystick thing for manual mirrors) and the wiring is in place, I think the guide is just adding the power fold function, tbh I jut looked like a bit too much work for me, so I just opted to do without.
You could get the relay from ford, I don't think they are very expensive, I think you'd be looking at less than a tenner each?

Holy sheeeeite!!! How wrong was I? Have a look at the price of a new relay from an online genuine ford parts dealer..... Plus another £30 just for the switch.....are you sure you still want power folding mirrors?

Coming to think of it if the loom for powerfold was in place i would guess that the relay would either be there or its place is marked so i am guessing that at best i have the loom for the standard electric hehe. Ill guess ill fit them instead since the relay not only brike the camels back (in terms of price) bit it killed it lol xP

The only one I can see on eBay is £14.99 plus £3.99 p&p still a decent price, but there's also connectors, about 7meters of wire and fusebox terminals to buy... Don't get me wrong it will be pretty cool if you pull it off and retro fit them :-)
Ok I have just checked my loom, there's only 5 wires in it, but my car is a pre facelift and (someone correct me if I'm wrong) none of the prefacelift fiestas ever had powerfold mirrors? The plug from the mirror has 7 wires(pictured) and I just taped the extra two wires up(maybe my mirrors are equipped with powerfold without me knowing it lol)

Well fir me how much i would like the power fold but i think it is complicated but i have a friend who might attempt it when i show him wat needs to be done ofc ill be talking with him before i buy anything lol

With regards to your mirror how do they close does it click? Ir is it smooth? I heard that powerfolds have 2 extra wires xD

Also the GEM on a facelift seems to control closing of the mirror once you lock. This is not listed on the prefacelift gem...

I hope your mate and yourself are able to fit the relays ect to get the power folds working, take pics along the way and put a guide together..... I have never even folded my mirrors in, so just tried it the now, and there's no resistance or clicking so I guess my mirrors are non folding, I'm not too bothered as it was mainly electric heated, with the colour coded back plate that I was wanting(and that's what I have got):-)

Ok been backnout to look at my loom, I forgot to tell you that the loom on the drivers side have two bundles of wires with connectors, one bundle goes to the mirror and the other bundle goes to the switch.......
