Wing mirror Wiring

So, Just got me a new Starspirit 2006 plate, with a busted Wing Mirror (Drivers Side). Bought a new one, and dismantled the old one, only to find that the connector had been removed from the Van Side.......... I'm left with a bunch of wires with no idea which order they go to the new Plug.........

Does anyone know which wire should go to where?....

Thanks in advance...

Personally no but the colours look the same so why not just connect the same colours up and see.?
The worst that could happen is a blown fuse.


The FSA licensed a twice convicted fraudster to handle our life´s savings. Guess what? He robbed us of £750,000.

From the pictures looks as though the wires are same colours, van to mirror.
Temporarily connect the wires colour for colour to ensure it all works as it should.

The best way would be to obtain a matching plug and pin connectors for the van side and attach colour for colour.
Failing that, the less desirable option is to remove the plug from mirror and choose your method to connect the wires together.

As that mirror is off, presumably you can see how it attaches to the van.

Maybe it is possible to remove the mirror on the other side as I expect the colours will be the same.

It seems odd that the plug was removed. I'm guessing the mirror was stolen and wire cutters used by the thief.

I'm daft and proud of it.
