Auto Dimming mirror retro fitting technical help please
Was considering retro fitting an auto dimming rear view mirror to my 159. I have removed the centre light and switch console and found two spare block connectors which I assume is for this optional extra? One connector I guess is for the mirror the other for the wiper rain sensor which is incorporated into the mirror assembly. Could the connectors be for anything else, I only ask as the block connectors on the mirrors I have seen (one being an 08 mirror the other an 06) are different from the connectors I have in my roof lining(same colour one black one white but a different shape and the cable colours are different)
Can probably trace and test the wires to see which ones a switched live etc but don't want to open up a can of worms canbus wise?
Andy help would be appreciated can post some pics later
PS Forgot to ask does anyone know if it fits directly onto the existing windscreen mount or is there adjustment required?
