Wow this is cool!

I only have function to change the mirrors position but I can not close/open them, there is no button inside.

Can I get the same link you? Or I need to install motors?

You need motor mirrors to do this like I did.

You must install wiring for the motor mirror too so then cost is unknown and will require at least 2-3 days as you have to conduct the wires through cable canals to doors and under interior panels.

If I read the diagram right, looks like you could install them afterwards.

Price for Rh retractor in 87946-42A60 -
is 7467 RUB = 183.73 EUR


If believing Toyodiy.com, motorized retracting mirrors have been available/standard since 2006 except base models.

OK, this seems like a big job already. Do you know where can I take a look which motors do I need? And if there is some write up or guide?

Thanks

I have other question...regarding the door mirrors, if you want to install the module for auto open/close (up/down), it doesnt affect the auto mirror folding??

Im willing to buy this one..very cheap! =)

I do not understand totally your question but...

If you mean can you still use the small button to control folding, yes it can be used, when acc is on. This box is only functional when acc in off.

If you mean to have system to move mirrors up&down while putting on reverse, this has no affect as it is attach only cables that control mirror frame movement.
This box doesn't have any affect on mirror glass movement.

Folding mirrors

Hi guys I had a similar box sold by a friend who makes them which worked the same way using the lock and unlock to fold/unfold the mirrors, should have been made standard on cars!
