QUESTION: Will I need a auto electrician to refit the wiring for the electric mirror adjustment and the heating elements if I want to fit a non-power fold mirror? I thinking about avoiding a car fire.

Yes my beautiful!) 307SW has been vandalised on the street overnight. They had a good go at getting the drivers power-fold mirror off but to no avail. It all still works but the mountings are dead. Seems I'll have to buy a whole new unit for which I been quoted £40 +vat for a manual version (FPS http://www.ford-peugeot-spares.co.uk/homeFrame.htm).


I've notived there's a Pug specialist with an impressive website in N22.

Belated thanks Scotcruz. As you say I was able to leave the power-fold connector socket empty when I fitted the non power-fold mirror.
Removing the drivers door mirror on a 307 does involve removing the window/mirror control panel and the door card. You will l need a range of tx-star heads for your screwdriver too. In addition I was unable to squeeze the clips to remove the mirror connectors from the control unit which is part of the window motor. It was quick and easy to remove the motor and unclip both mirror control wires from this unit. Most difficult bit was trying to get the colour coded panel off the old mirror without breaking the the clips.
New mirror with electric adjust and heater £35.
Time to fit by total amateur 1.5hrs.

And it works!
