Quick question, do you remove end piece of the ground wire (gentex) before tapping it into the ground wire (sunroof)?

Actually, my harness that came with the mirror had no connector on one end and other end hooks into the mirror.

Home Depot sells a package with different vampire connectors. The Gentex wires are thicker than the sunroof wires. i connected the ground black to a small screw i placed above the interior light assembly. The Toyota wires are thin and i decided to only use two connectors one for the constant volt and the flow when the engine is on. use a light probe to test them.

Don't know if I should post this here.

I have a Gentex Genk5A brand new that I purchased for my Toyota 4Runner about 5 years ago and never got installed. I totally forgot I had it until I saw this post. I still have the 4Runner but not interested on installing the mirror anymore. I believe its the original from Toyota and it should work with any Toyota vehicle. If someone is interested let me know. Make me a good offer and its yours.

Here is the link of the product.
