Don't swap the motors...

I'm sure it can be done, and people have done it, but does you really need that tilt down and memory function?

I have learned to live without it.

I'm the only one who drives my car so the memory is fine.
And as for the tilt down, I have Hagus mirrors and if I stretch up and look into the mirror at the curb I can see just as well as when it tilted down.

Not worth the hassle of swapping IMO, but good luck.

PS: I think Kromex swapped his.

Use this here diagram... take apart the wiring harness for the OEM Mirrors... take out the connecting wires out... get the Hagus Mirrors... do the same thing... replace the connectors with the matching numbers and colors from the Wiring Diagram.

PM if you got any questions.
