I get you - it does say electrically folding, but that is something I would have to verify, as not a translation error.Is it electric folding had this with a seller they are electric heated and glass movement and they can fold if you push them but are they electric folding if you get me
Syncro, can you explain what the difference is regarding LHD & RHD in this regard. I would have thought the connectors on each side are the same - no. Where would the LHD/RHD difference kick in?They are left hand drive mirrors according to the description there, you could swap the electric folding parts on to your own right hand drive mounting bases

Yes you need the power fold bases, you dont need the oem switch/module for it to work, I actually used a trigger pulse of the conv module/pump in boot of the lock/unlock which triggered a timer relay to fold/unfold, 1 relay on each circuit, its just reverse polarity to fold opposite way.
There have been uses of the relay 361 but this method keeps power on the circuit all the time iirc & you have to question if it will do any good to the motor having power 24/7, hence why I opted for timer circuits which were iirc, 10 seconds which is plenty of time to fold/unfold either way.
I also incorporated the 1 click closure in the same circuit, was very cool tbh with full closure & folding on 1 remote press
These ones are VW Passat B5 Power Folding mirrors with the original 8L bases, these ones will only take plastic housings but I’m working on a set at the moment that will take the aluminium housings.
Warren, another quick question... did you have to get a different knob, that turns further? I recall seeing someone bodged a standard one, as the contacts are actually in place, but covered or something. Just wondering what option you went for.
Great to see you got a set to take the alloy caps, where did you source the new aftermarket c5 mirrors? It can certainly be done cheaper with second hand ones My c5 allroad electric folding mirrors were only 50 euros with the relay from the local breakers.
