Power folding mirror swap

I have an 07 EB EL. I want to replace my side mirrors with mirrors off of the Limited model. The Limited model mirrors are power folding. The wire harness is the exact same. The only difference I can see is the switch on the door panel. To operate the folding of the mirrors you press the switch down. The switches are almost identical. My switch doesn't show the folding option. I'm sure the mirrors would probably work but will I have to change the switch to the Limited one. Thanks

all you need is that switch...and you might already have it.

the switch actually gets "pulled" backwards when it is in the neutral position. that triggers the mirrors to fold or extend.


depending on the wire harness, you will need to run a trigger wire from the adjustment switch to the mirror. relatively easy though.



btw, when you install them, there is a synchronization procedure inside the owners manual. make sure to do this. it sets the power fold mirrors up so they fold and extend the proper amount and do it in sync
