My 97 Expedition signal mirrors were replaced by me and I broke the Pass side motor. I have access to cheap 2000/2001 signal mirrors with the signal part on the outside of the mirror.
Will these mirrors just bolt into place with out and splicing of wires?
Basically plug and play?
Does the mirror cap come off or do I need to get that painted?
This is something I've been wanting to do for a while.
Are the '07 XLTs wired for the missing below the mirror signal lights?
How can we check? Does that blank panel just pop off?
Yes the black plate does 'pop' off, at least it easily did for my wife when she ran into the garage door! I belive it's held on w/ 3 pressure tabs. Regarding it be prewired, I don't think so. If I recall when when looking at the busted mirror and had a clean look into the innards, there was no loose wires. The only wires went directly to the motor which controlled the mirror. Now it's quite possible that if you get a mirror from junkyard (or from others) that is already wired w/ the blinker, that it may plug directly into the connector behind the door panel. By the way, I've got an XLT
