The folding mirrors work a treat on the GTC unfortunately the 5dr mirror bases that bolt to the door are longer and different shape so dont fit:( . I now need to see if the bases can be swapped

What about the motors ?can they be swapped into your mirrors?

Within the car body those two pins just take the signals from one door to the other. If you don't have those wires then you will need to add them. Somewhere further back up this thread is the wiring diagram to show you how it should work.

Hi Guys,

I am from Germany and 1 month ago I bought an used Astra-J Innovation (I think like the Elite Model) 2.0 CDTI 160HP.
After I read this thread I searched for 2 power fold mirrors for my opel astra-j MY2011.
I directly found them on german eBay for really small money (65€ each). Complete with glasses and red covers.
After that I got also the switch for 25€. One guy of the german astra-j forum gave me the needed pins and
yesterday I start to "upgrade" my car. What should I say? Great! It works quite fine.

A big thanks goes to all guys which are working on this solution here. Very great.

The only thing I would like to add is a automatic folding function. As the mirrors are not connected to the canbus I will
make a circuit to do so (with 2 times pressing the open/close button on the remote control).

But to do this I need the schematic of the door connector.

Did anyone have this and can give to me?


BR,
Jens

I too was wondering about this mod, I did this on my mk3 mondeo by connecting the power fold relay to a
The GEM/alarm module. But being new to the Astra I'm still finding my way around

As far as I know, there's no "factory" retrofit to get the mirrors to fold and unfold on locking or unlocking as that feature is so far limited to the Insignias that have the seats with position memory as a spec (I don't know why those two are linked, may be part of an option pack) - that's not to say it can't be done! There are some wiring diagrams earlier in the thread that might be of assistance Jens.

were they meant to be adding memory seats to J?
