folding mirrors question

Postby Akihero » Thu Aug 27, 2015 12:13 pm

ok so i bought a rhd clip which also had the doors so i have door wiring to replace so the mirrors work but my question is do i just swap out the relay box from the rhd to the us or is there something i have to do additional? and the wiring was removed prior to me buying it so the door wiring was in a box with the mirrors and other misc parts. is there a difference in the door wiring between the left and right door ?

As long as you have the wiring, switch, and relay box that should be all you need I imagine. . When I did mine I didn't have all that so I had to source the door harness mirror connectors and run extra wires through the door grommet to the relay box via a diagram I got from a member here. You'll have to run the extra wire from the switch to the relay box unless the clip has that as well.

Unless your mirrors do more than fold, the blue box is all you need. The black box you have pictured is for something else I believe. EDIT: sorry, I got things mixed up. . not the blue box but the black box. The blue box is for the headlights I think.

You are right, no plugs for box, switch, or mirrors. You're going to have to reuse the connectors from the JDM clip for the mirrors and box. If you have the connector for the switch too, great! (if not, no worries since they are the same connector. . USDM just has less pins) use that but if not, simply add the retract wire which goes to the box.

Here's the diagram I mentioned in my first post.
