@  Stratuscaster : (15 August 2014 - 04:09 PM) JA Service Manual
@  borgwarrior : (15 August 2014 - 01:47 PM) Is the factory service manual available somewhere?
@  KennyL : (15 August 2014 - 11:02 AM) A bit more in depth: The Haynes manual was hashed out by a company that dis-assembled and re-assembled a car all while writing it out. The Factory Service Manual was written by the people who built and engineered the car and was designed to be used by factory service technicians. You'd be hard pressed to come up with something the FSM doesn't have, while the Haynes sometimes has errors and does not list things in a clear manner.
@  Stratuscaster : (15 August 2014 - 07:04 AM) It's certainly not as complete as the FSM from Chrysler - good to have as a reference, but not the be-all/end-all.
@  borgwarrior : (15 August 2014 - 12:02 AM) Uuh, why is haynes ######? just curious, helped me more than once, altough I'm not exactly the mechanic type

@  Stratuscaster : (14 August 2014 - 06:52 AM) Not true - I've shimmed a wobbly table with one, so it is useful in that regard.
@  BeaterStatus : (13 August 2014 - 11:31 PM) Good for toilet paper and not much else
@  BeaterStatus : (13 August 2014 - 11:31 PM) Haynes is ######

I have a 2000 Cirrus with non-heated powered mirrors. My driver's side mirror got sheared off, so I'm trying to find a replacement. I can find plenty of manuals, and plenty of powered HEATED mirrors.

From what I understand, the difference between heated and non-heated is that the heated have an additional two wires for the heating elements, and of course this means a different connector.

My thinking is that I could get a heated mirror, cut off the connector, and figure out which of the two wires are for the heating elements, and cut those back. Use the old connector from my broken mirror, and I should be all set.

Does this sound reasonable? If so, does anyone have an idea how hard it'd be? I figure it shouldn't be all that hard with a multimeter and a little probing around.

Otherwise - anyone have a source for NON-HEATED powered mirrors? From what I've found so far, aftermarket only makes heated powered, and the salvage yards I've checked with only have broken mirrors.

I don't know much about heated mirrors but i know that you should be able to figure it out and the installation should be simple and it has to be a easy electrical thing. i think heated mirrors would come in handy after a frost or freeze never knoe when those come arround... id keep goin with the heated mirrors and try to figure it out... it would be a nice lil addition :naughty:
