    Will I definitely have wiring for electric mirrors?

    Car is a 53 plate 1.6 Sxi, is it pretty certain thay I'll have the loom in the door or do I need to check before I order mirrors?

    Check. It depends on what was about when your car was built.

    You should be able to the plug if you pop off your switch blank.
    If not....it's the doorcard off.

    Or you may be able to see the mirror connection behind the triangular panel on the inside of the door mirror (with the tweeter in it)

    had a look behind the tweeter cover and I have a little square black connector taped up with the tweeter wire, I assume this means I have the loom?

    Only means you have the loom in the doors, i've heard of them being there but not in the car

    Check the fuse locations for pins on both sides
