Hi I would like to fit an autodimming rear view mirror.....

What parts do I need, and how do I fit it? Is it a straight swap or do I need to do any complex wiring/changes? Is the wiring already in the headliner or not?

Also do all autodimming rear view mirrors have the rain sensors for the wipers built into them or not?

Many thanks

Hi there,
I?ve got a V6 4-Mo which has both auto mirror & rain sensor. The rain sensor is on the reverse of the mirror stuck against the windscreen. When I had a new windscreen it took a while to get the correct one as its different from a regular Golf. There?s a clear circular area where the sensor picks up any moisture on the glass surface at the top of the windscreen.
I must say after 4.5 years with the 4-Mo the mirror and wipers sensors are terrific... much, much better than the crap 206GTi I owned previously.

Hope this helps,

As for the windscreen....I had to replace mine about a year ago and there doesnt seem to be any black coating near the rear view mirror at all.....does this mean I wouldnt have to change the screen?

They go through the mount, up a little tube to the head lining,through into the sunroof control, then across to the door and down the pilar, in put one in mine it's really easy to do.

Any chance someone who has the PDF could send it to me too? Zak can't get to his copy at the moment so I was hoping another kindly member might help?!

Please, please, please can someone PM me?!

Thanks!

Adrian.

Nice one Ray, although after reading that i'm not sure i should bother, i don't think it will do an awful lot because of my tints. It was just one of those impulsive purchases that you don't think about until later[:$]
