Hey all, I could use some info, how do you take off the Stock rear view mirror??? I'm trying to install an auto-dim/compass one and I can't get the stock "S" one off. I've looked at the how to for the other rear view and doesn't show how to get this one off.

If I am not mistaken you use a small screw driver to lift up on a slip.

Let me see if it says in the service manual.

Nope, the service manual doesn't really give you any info.

Yeah I found it, thanks to that service manual. The only thing I can't find is where to run the wiring for the auto-dim/compass feature. Any idea where? I'm sitting in my X right now trying to figure this one out. Again any help would be aweseom guys, thanks.

For just the power I would tap into the dome light.

Although, that would mean it was always on. Maybe run the wire down and tap into the ignition only power outlet.

How does the directions say to wire it?

I don't have the directions, just the service manual for the X. I bought this a couple of months ago from another member when I was in the desert, but now that I'm back, I get to install stuff on the X, and this is my first part that I'm installing today.

Thanks, but the info says go to the fuse box, and it is way different then the '05, I think I'm going to stuff the wiring up in the headliner for now, and keep looking around for a spot to wire it to. If anyone has any more info let me know, thanks Muzikman and XVTer for you help thus far.

We had one installed on the X when we bought it, and as I recall the wiring is already there stuffed in the headliner or by the dome light.

Didn't see anything up there, mine is an '05 S model, not sure if they had it up there. There are two wires, both black one with a red stripe and the other just plain black, now I'm assuming that the one with the red stripe is the positive, and the other would be the ground.

Now I found this over on the XOC and the 7th and 8th pics show 2 different wires for power I think, so I was going to give that a shot today.

Anyone else with info?

HA!!!!
Got it, took a little reading and buying some stuff at RadioShack, but I got it done.
Next mods: Calmini Spacer/Shackle, TheNewX.org sticker, XOC sticker, and BFG stickers. I'll get pics up when I'm done with those.

Thanks all that helped me out.
:cheers:
