    Electric Mirror Looms...

    I posted ages ago as i installed electric mirrors and the passenger side wasnt working at all.

    Well i finally got my finger out and had a proper look with a multi meter.

    It turns out - dont know hwo i didnt notice before- that the looms are the exact same on both sides. Let me explain what i mean - in the drivers side loom there is a brown, grey, black/white, black/red, and blue wire (off the top of my head.)

    This wiring is identical in the passenger side, however in the switch theres a green,yellow,red etc etc, so what my dad and i recon is that vauxhall perhaps wired the car for both left and right hand drive? If this is possible then there might still be a mirror wire somewhere with my name on it, or they are just clowns and installed the wrong bit!

    Has anyone else ever had this or anything similar happen?
