Hello, I hope I can be of assistance.
Is the replacement mirror from a Focus but a different year?
Let me know and I'll reply as soon as I'm able to.
No. Replacement is new from 'FPS' ford and peugeot spares of Faringdon Avenue,XXXXX XXXXX ,Romford Essex.
unless you know either what model the mirror is from or the wiring designation of the new mirror you won't be able to get the electrical system of the mirror to operate correctly.
The Focus mirror will have 2 wires for heating, 2 wires for up and down adjustment and 2 wires for left right adjustment. The actual mirror connector
should be a block connector with 6 wires as shown below.
These wires will then go in to the mirror.
If you get a genuine Ford replacement mirror then this would be a straight forward swap where the 6 wire connector unplugs and the new mirror plugs in to this.
As I said earlier without the wiring designations you will struggle with this.
I hope this helps.
Thanks Sean, can you further advise which pairs of connections numbered 1-6 in the block connector serve up, down, and heating functions and also the wire colour on the existing loom for each function. Thanks
the colours and functions of the wires at the mirror connector are as follows.
Pin 1 12 volts when mirror adjusting up, blue/yellow wire, earth when adjusting down.
Pin 2 earth when mirror adjusting left, 12 volts when adjusting right, yellow/violet wire.
Pin 3 12 volts when adjusting mirror left, earth when adjusting mirror right and 12 volt
when adjusting mirror down and earth when adjusting mirror up, white/green wire.
Pin 4 12 volts with heated mirror on, green/orange wire.
Pin 5 permanent earth, black wire.
Pin 6 should be an empty pin.
Being a Ghia spec car if the indicators are in the mirror and there are puddle lamps then there will be more terminals to the mirror to account for these.
If the wiring doesn't match the connector let me have the chassis number and I'll be able to check vehicle specific wiring.
Thanks Sean, I think that I can cobble the connections with this information. Lesson learned is to make sure that replacement parts are genuine Ford spares if buying from the web. Regards
