Kev Baldwin Posted February 27, 2006 Share Posted February 27, 2006 All singing and dancing electronic dipping rear view mirror on my 96 D1 has died a death. Gooey stuff coming out of button and glass gone cloudy. Now being a poncy, lazy git, I actually like the auto-dipping thingy, so I got myself a bargain D2 auto-dipping mirror of eBay which for the record, at least according to my local independent parts guy, is actually the part Land Rover now lists as the replacement part for the older switchable D1 mirror. Sure enough, D2 mirror clips straight onto my windscreen bracket and looks like it belongs, however, the wiring colour codes on the mirrors are different. Both mirrors have three wires. D1 mirror has black, white, grey D2 mirror as black, green/white, green/red. I've tested the wires and only the white wire is live with the ignition, so my question is, presuming its black to black, can anyone tell me which way round I should connect the two other wires? Will it make a difference? If the later mirror supersedes the earlier part number, it must work somehow? For the record. New price of replacement dipping rear view mirror £130! eBay price £40.
