Install is done and it works beautifully. Personally, this is my favorite way of doing it. So let's start.
Here is a pic of the visor
Here is a picture of the three wire plug that comes on the homelink visor. This differs from the non-homelink visor in that the non-homelink visor has only two wires. The wires on the non-homelink visor consists of a red wire(Ground) and a brown wire(Battery or Positive). The homelink consists of Red(Power for the sliding mirror which turns on the light) Green(Power for the Homelink unit) and black (Ground for the whole visor).
Now to start disassembly. You need to look at the left hand corner of where the visor meets the headliner and you will see this.
You must pull down the clip to reach the screw to remove the visor. I used a pick.
Once that is pulled down you will see a T-20 Torx Screw.
You use a t-20 socket or driver to take that down. After removing the screw, you can pull back on that clip that was just unfastened and it will release. Don't forget to undo the bar that clips into the holder on the other side. The visor will now drop but you will not see the clip. You need to stick your finger in the hole and just help feed the wires out. You will come to a connecter that you need to just press to release. Unclip the visor and then snip the wires giving you at least an inch of room to do what you need to do.
Below you see three items. The first is the clip from the non-homelink visor. This will be needed because as you can see from the second clip, they are not the same size. The third pic shows three wire from the new visor that I told you about.
I then needed to setup the homelink visor for install. I twisted the red and green wires together which are my power side and left the ground on its own.
After this was done I had soldered the red and green wire from the visor to the brown wire of the plug, and then I soldered the black wire of the visor to the red wire of the plug. Sorry I forgot to take a pic of that. Then I taped the power and grounds individually. Then I taped the whole thing together.
After this we are ready for the re-install. I simply plugged the visor back in and then worked the wires back into the headliner.
Then you clip the visor back in and put the T-20 screw back in and snap the cover right back over the screw. It should look like this when you are done. If you have any other questions please do not hesitate to contact me.
I already recieved a message asking what the pn's on the plugs.The pn for the non-homelink plug which needs to be used and is on all non-homelink visors is 1H0 973 131 A. The other side of the same plug says KBR>PA66<B4. Any other questions please let me know.
