Experiment: 97 E350 with manual mirrors - want powered ones.
So, I bought a set of powered mirrors off a post 2002 van. One of the mirrors was broken a bit with a loose housing. Seller made it right and refunded me 1/2 the amount. So, I wanna use it as a test mule for wiring it to be powered.
My 97 E350 doesn't have powered mirrors. Everyone states that the powered wiring is there, but I seem to be missing it. I also know the fitting is different...
So, anyone done this and know what I should do?
My thoughts are this:
1) get a set of connectors to splice into the wires once I find them. That way, if I need to remove the mirrors, I can disconnect each wire and remove.
2) get a control switch for the mirrors. Again, do not see the plug in for this switch so, not sure what to do.
If I cannot go powered, I assume I will just leave them as non powered and adjust manually. Kind of ghetto, but would work...
Anyone done this from non powered to powered? I did all the drilling and got them mounted.
