You will have to grind off a small locating nub type thing on the part of the mirror that is against the door, other than that everything lines up and direct plug in.

There are a number of guys on the forums that have done this. There is an eBay seller with lots of the power fold power extend which have the connector ends cut off. These are NEW OEM not someone's scratch-and-dent ones for less then $500 for a PAIR.

It looks as if you would either have to swap your door panels to the 2008 style or modify the door panel you have now. The new switch is completely different than the older style.

Haven't even started putting mine if just have a bunch of links to study. I've read that there's a way to fix the reverse action with a relay. Also, that you can buy the door wiring harness to make things easier.

Here's another guys post.

2008 mirrors - Here's a quick run down of the 08 mirrors to 06 mirrors wire color conversion schematic if you cannot open the pdf version of the document posted earlier in this thread.

P/N 3U2Z-14S411-DLA *see also WPT-219* <--- switch wiring/plug harness

Driver's side:
08 mirror 06 mirror
-Red w/ Silver tracer -Red
-Yellow w/ Silver tracer -Yellow
-Blue w/ Silver tracer -Blue
-Mint Green -Green
-Black -Black
-Black w/ White tracer -Black w/ White tracer OR Green w/ Purple tracer
-Brown -Brown


Passenger's Side:
08 mirror 06 mirror
-Green w/ Silver tracer -Green
-Yellow w/ Silver tracer -Yellow
-Purple w/ Silver tracer -Purple
-White -White OR White w/ Blue tracer
-Black -Black
-Black w/ White tracer -Black w/ White tracer OR Green w/ Purple tracer
-Brown -Brown

** Wire colors for Power-Fold & Power Telescoping functions were already posted earlier in this thread.

Here's the link I used for the relays in order to get the 08 mirrors to reverse the operation of the left/right functions and operate properly. It might look sort of confusing, but it was really simple to do.

Wiring fix

As far as the switch wiring(mine already had 7 wires uand fit into the 08 mirror switch). I just added the 8th wire that I took out of the WPT219 that I ordered.

If you flip the switch upside down so that you are looking at where the connector plugs into i will base my colors like this...

1234
5678

1-Black
2-purple
3-orange/green stripe
4-black wire I added
5-blue
6-yellow
7-green
8-red


Here is how I hooked up the wiring coming from the 08 mirrors to the stock wiring coming from the door.

08 mirror.......................................OEM
