6 pin and 12 pin. both should fit and work. 12 pin are the folding mirrors and 6 pin are manual.. sorry to hear about your mirrors being kicked. i know exactly how you must be feeling.

Im really sorry to hear about this.....I cannot understand what goes thru people's minds when they do this.

I really hope he/she slips up in the snow and breaks his arm.

tabbassam, I tried to upgrade to OEM folding mirrors after taking your advice. Fitted them the other day, fitted the switch and connected them all up and checked that I had a fuse in position 57.......

.....and nothing. Can see that the positioning motors work for the mirror glass, but no folding function.

The images of the connectors are attached, drivers side on the left. Are these the connectors for folding mirrors?
