    Thread: MKIV Power Folding Mirrors

    1. 09-24-2012 03:09 AM #26
      I took a look at the German instructions, and they seem to be for complete installation of power mirrors. If I get some time I will try to se whether just the relay installation introductions can be extracted for those of us who already have power folding mirrors.

      If your referring to jdm engine world ad you saw on kijiji, you should also check out their reccarro jdm seats they have a fold down arm rest.

      Aswell I called them 2 months ago, I was going to go pick up the power folding mirrors but when I was on the phone with the guy he said they were power heated and manual fold.
      Just looking out, I noticed ur kinda local to me
      But they litterally new nothing about vw, maybe I should have went down to check them out
      Btw you can offer these people a little less and they will usually take it, or bundle some items.

      Got my ass to the junkyard this weekend and got my hands on some Passat GLX window regulators the complete wireing harness. So the last bits I need are the switch and relay

      Im going to get a special switch though not going for the standard on this one so it might take a little longer...

      It has begun finally, dove into the window regulators easy as pie, un-clip the Passat motors and swap the electronics with the Jetta regulators.

      And i pulled both jetta mirror and the Passat mirror apart and started to mash the two together. so far its straight forward and easy re-compressing the pivot spring seems like it is going to suck but alas i will find a way...

      If i made a DIY vid it would involve me doing a bunch of work which is not necessarily right because this is the first time I have attempted this. I worked on the driver side all last night the motor swap is easy, unclip old clip on new blah blah. the mirror dissasembly is also easy remove cap and dissassemble. Retrofit the switch onto the GERMAN jetta base. Reassemble the passat mirror into the GERMAN jetta base and Wire away as desgribed in a few threads. Then code the CCM, and bam enjoy.

      Now I need to source some German mirrors OR find a shorter pivot spring...

      Hi Guys,

      As there are now a few subscribers to this thread, I thought it would be a good idea to post something more concrete now that I have more clarity regarding the installation and wiring.
      I've been fortunate enough to have received some super valuable info from Australia's very own Graeme Robertson.
      Below you will find correspondence between Graeme and I.


      Here we go!

      Okay, I learnt something myself looking for this.

      Always wondered what those extra pins on the stock mirror switch were used for!

      Following logic.

      The new beetle uses a 361 relay for folding mirrors AND also uses the exact same mirror switch as the Golf with Folding mirrors, so the connections are in the switch okay.

      (If you look in Audi wiring they only have an on/off type switch, not like Golf version with variable internal resistance for the "fold" signal)

      So if you have oem mirrors that can fold BUT do not have the door motors for folding mirrors (very expensive), then you can just follow the attached wiring schematic.

      You will also need the proper oem folding mirror switch in the door

      This is a new beetle with folding mirrors using the 361 relay, so your setup you are after would be identical to this wiring to work.

      Just find the relay in the diagram (Page 6) and do the same connections.


      This will give you folding mirrors anytime via the oem switch (with ignition on).

      If you want the mirrors to fold with remote locking, I have a diagram for that BUT they cannot be folded any other time as there is no door switch involved.

      If you have Japanese mirrors off a RHD car, then for a LHD car the mirror angles will not be optimum for setting up the glass centrally for viewing.

      The mirror stalks are angled differently on RHD to point towards the other seat in the car, so the glass has to be angled to its extreme

      Good luck, just a few wires to run around the car.

      Regards
      Graeme

      This is the ICO CCM convenience system.

      AS you can see at the moment your stock mirrors are controlled by the door motor.

      So some functions like mirror heating and normal up/down movements overlap with the 361 relay functions on the New Beetle

      I am fairly certain you only need to make the power and earth and the folding mirror connections with the 361 relay and the rest can stay full oem from the door modules (like mirror heat etc)

      On the golf diagram they draw the internal circuits of the mirrors as well which makes it easier to see whats going on inside them.


      HERE IS A LINK TO THE 2ND PDF:
      https://docs.google.com/open?id=0B_V...DhaRmxOcTlUM28


      NEXT EMAIL

      Following on from two previous emails


      You could also remove all the connections from the oem mirror switch to the stock door controllers and just run the 361 relay for the mirror functions.

      I dont think you need to go that far though.

      This is the version for using just the remote folding. As you can see they have only added the folding wires (and joined the safe signal to get the "locking" signal)

      All the other stock wires are as per oem for normal mirror functions.


      So in your case for the 361 - just use the 4, 5, 6 & 8 pins from the oem New beetle diagram - that is the folding motors part

      You need 12 and 14 too but I havent worked them out yet.

      The beetle switch and the golf switch are wired totally differently on these two diagrams I sent you which is a bit suspicious.

      They quote the golf switch as the same part for both.

      I will have to test a spare one I have here to see if it works wired up the beetle way.

      The new beetle also lists a sharan switch as well for some applications so this diagram may be that version!

      Stay tuned

      Just print out what I have sent so far and you can compare for yourself.



      HERE IS A LINK TO THE 3RD PDF:
      https://docs.google.com/open?id=0B_V...mhRcEJuajlwSVU

      NEXT EMAIL

      This sharan diagram shows the same connections as the new beetle one I sent before.

      It appears that the sharan style switch may be required to get the relay to work as there is an internal on/off switch for the folding signal.

      The golf uses a variable resistance signal to the door motor, so different. The output signal varies depending on which position the switch is in using internal resisters

      As you can see the body of the sharan switches is identical to the golf/beetle one with a different face...so you just swap over the internals into a golf switch if required

      This is a good diagram too as it shows the full internals

      Little bit of work yet to work out how to integrate to golf which has the door modules controlling the mirrors.

      I would say just wire in the 361 with a "sharan style switch" with these internals and remove all the connections to the golf door module relating to the mirrors

      There is one listed in the new beetle parts anyway which would be a direct fit.


      HERE IS A LINK TO THE 4TH PDF:
      https://docs.google.com/open?id=0B_V...mtGdVFoUXVKTkE

      NEXT EMAIL

      This looks like good news that the late beetle switch 7M3959565 looks like normal Golf switch!

      Hey,

      To add to the mess of links and info and options....


      Folding with remote locking is certainly the easiest retofit option.

      So follow that white single page schematic - tried and tested by most people who add mirrors.

      ypou just need to match up the three pins to the correct mirror pins - use the more detailed vw schematics to work out which pin on the mirror is for the folding motor and the microswitch that you need to connect to.

      That is not mine originally - it came from a German site..

      http://www.carcajou.de/howto/spiegel.htm


      I am quite intrigued by that new beetle switch now - didnt know about that.

      You are still going to have trouble aiming those mirrors.

      Hop in your passenger side now and adjust your existing mirrors and you will see they need to be turned quite a bit to see from that position..which is the drivers side on the RHD

      this is where the stubbies will want to aim at in their central position.

      http://www.users.on.net/~graeme86/relays/relays.html

      the 18 pin base you need(FOR AUDI 361 RELAY) is just like two 9 pin bases and has the same pins.


      VW sell a Clip-in Relay Socket that locates in the square holes in the Additional Relay Plate under the dash of the .:R32.

      The 9-pin version is 443 937 527.

      This is the version used that will accept all the common relays noted above.

      There is also an 18-pin version that takes up two adjacent vacant locations with Part Number 4A0 937 529 .

      This version is commonly used when you also use a "double relay", such as the Multi-Function Steering Wheel Control Relay etc.

      Terminal Pins

      If you look at the Relay Plate Mounts, you will note there are three different size terminal pins that they use.

      The VW Repair wires for the different terminal sizes are:

      Small

      Terminal socket numbers 1, 3, 7 and 9.

      1.0mm² = 000 979 133

      2.5mm² = 000 979 225

      Medium

      Terminal socket numbers 2, 5 and 8.

      1.0mm² wire = 000 979 135

      2.5mm² wire = 000 979 227

      Large

      Terminal socket numbers 4 and 6.

      0.5mm² wire = You can buy bare terminals from Porsche - Part Number 999 650 330 00

      1.0mm² wire = 000 979 114 (or you can buy Porsche bare terminals 999 650 103 12)

      2.5mm² wire = 000 979 212

      I have quoted metric VW wire sizes above. Here are the approximate US equivalent wire gauge sizes:

      0.5mm² ~ 20 gauge

      1.0mm² ~ 16 gauge

      2.5mm² ~ 12 gauge

      God i love this stuff.

      Great info Bocesco, I am still going the full passat GLX retofit route so far so good - the mexican jetta mirror snag.

      And so far I have spent about 75$ total for:

      -Passat window regulators (For the jetta windo regulator retrofit)
      -Passat GLX power folding mirrors
      -Door harness out of the GLX passat


      I still need to spend a little more for the switches, relays and the German Jetta mirror.

      But so far this is cheapoooo

      The knob on my jetta broke for the mirror adjustments. I went to a junk yard and found the one with the folding option for $5. I guess it's a sign I need to do this mod.

      It wasn't really a whole day. just what little free time I could separate from my essential life tasks, so more like a couple hours.
      I resent your comment wholeheartedly. I don't have to justify anything to you.
      To be honest, any time I see somebody who is in need, I help them. I'm a kind and generous person.
      The fact is that there is always someone worse off than me. I can't deny myself the pleasure of learning something new and satisfying the urge to tinker with electronics just because some morally superior judgemental person like you sticks their nose in.

      Just ignore him he never has anything useful/intelligent to add to any thread. Just do what you do because you like to.

      Dude! So WHY are you even giving this guy any time? There is VERY important business to tend to. Like helping me with my mod


      1. What are the part numbers for the motors and what year Passat can I get them from?
      2. I bought the mirros from jdmengineland but now I see that they may not work? What are your suggestions?
      3. In your (and everyone else that did the mod) opinion which is easier, going the relay method or the switch method.
      4. I read you info but it doesn't make much sense to me at this point since I haven't started the mod yet. Could you break it down simply for me?



      Thanks in advance!

      My 2nd set of power mirrors were $25

      The dip when in reverse is controlled with the memory seat module.
