Wiring 08 Tow Mirrors for an 08

Mine came with the wimpy paddle mirrors & I bought the Tow mirrors with PF, PE & heated & the controler switch, now I have the task of wiring. Is it a color for color connection for the splicing? because the mirrors & switch do not have the plugs is the reason I'm askin? What about finding the plugs? Any one know where I can find the pins & keepers for the factory plugs?

All kinds of truck parts including manual mirrors. Still a bit pricey.

I found some OEM 2011 Ford F-Series Power/Heated Trailer Tow Mirrors taken off from an F450 & need to find out if these will fit my 08.

Anyone know???

ThanksJim

I did get the mirrors mounted & everything lined up great. Now comes the wiring, I did get some wiring diagrams printed from a stealership though now I have to figure it all out. I do wish that they (mirror sellers) had left the plugs intact, it would be allot easier...

Thanks for the help!!!

Not to steal the thread or anything.. but i have an 08 with the paddles also, power, but thats it. if i purchase a pair of the power/heated mirrors.. is the heating something i can just leave unwired? and will it basically just wire up without changing out the control switch?

thank you in advance to anyone!

Do not believe

Ford wires the wires into one plug. When you take your door panel off all the wires are wired to a box that pops off of the control for the mirror. If your truck does not have the same set up as the mirrors that you want I do not believe it will work. These mirrors are designed for you to buy them off ford and dont ask questions. I'm sure it can be done but its not just a simple universal plug where just the heat will not work.

I'm sorry I do not know the proper terminology for this
