Fitting auto dimming mirror to 2005 Sport...
« on: August 01, 2011, 12:27:12 PM »
Hi all,

Am really starting to miss the auto dimming rearview mirror on my old C-Max. I do quite a lot of night time driving and found the auto dimming mirror to be fantastic.

I've found a Gentex mirror which, according to the seller's website, is suitable for Mazda 3 using existing windscreen mount. However, I have the auto headlight/wiper sensor behind the rearview mirror and from what I can make out, it looks like the windscreen mounts maybe different to the non auto headlight/wiper models.

If anyone has successfully retrofitted an auto-dimming mirror to their 3 Sport, please can you share the experience?!

Thanks!!

Perhaps a PM to Neeldub might prove useful to you to see if there were any further issues.
