    If the loom is already in the car, give yourself 1-2 hours start to finish.
    Its literally a case of
    1. Fit mirror switch in dash
    2. Remove door cards.
    3. Remove mirrors
    4. Fit electric mirrors.
    5 remove non-elec loom from door
    6. Fit elec loom into door.
    7. Connect the connectors.
    8. Refit door card
    9. Repeat for other side
    If at first you don't succeed, destroy all the evidence.

  2. Remove Advertisements

    Mis-read your post fr3nchy!

    Easy to check.
    Pop the right hand blank panel off by your right knee.
    If the looms installed a plug will be hiding behind it

    I'd love electric windows but heard that is indeed difficult to do :/

    Depends if the looms there or not.
    If the loom is already in the body (like mine is) then its just a case of swapping out the window winder system for an electric regulator.
    The door looms i fitted for the mirrors also have the window section on them forward planning and all that.

    Yea, its more of a challenge of the looms arent there.
    You'd need to build them from scratch.
    Not impossible (will be doing it myself on the 5dr) but its not as straightforward

    What induction kit are you thinking of?
    I've been looking into the best place to have the filter to avoid heatsoak, but it's all budget based
