    Electric mirrors

    My Astra only has manual wing mirrors, how hard/easy is it to get them converted to electric mirrors? Will that invalidate my car's warranty??

    Easy enough to do and here's how http://www.astra-sport.co.uk/fitelectricmirrors.pdf.

    And it won't affect the warrenty in the slightest

    It's an easy swap if you have the wiring in your doors. Won't make any difference to your warranty.

    One of those many plug and play mods.

    Urm....the info in the PDF file isn't correct.

    Not all Astra G's have the loom in the doors.

    and step 6 isn't right.
    Fitting the fuse will only make the mirror motors work.

    You'll need to add a relay (which isn't mentioned at all)

    to get the heated part of the mirrors working.

    Yes it's mine.

    The fuses are the right way up, it's just the writing is printed upside down.
    I'll write the How to... if you want. It wont be a PDF file tho.

    PM me.

    Nice one, if you do the "How-to" in word and email over to me, I'll PDF and host it.

    (shocking quality control on those fuses BTW)
