    EXT: Heated mirror glass install

    So i decided to get smart and just type everything on the pictures

    This is only for installing the glass, not wiring them to actually work. That will be another DIY

    Materials:
    1996-1998 acura 2.5/3.2 heated mirror glass
    solder
    shrink tube
    about 2 feet of thin wire

    Tools:
    Philips screw drivers
    flat blade screw drivers
    soldering iron
    oven
    hands
    brain

    YOU WILL NEED TO KNOW HOW TO SOLDER, using cheap shit clips is not an option due to the small space inside the mirror and interference that could be created by a large wire clip thingy.

      I give you big props for doing this and making the DIY but this seems like SO much trouble... Maybe it's just me, lol.

        It only took me about an hour to do one mirror, and that included taking my time and taking pictures

            I may have to grab some of these from the yard soon.

            Did you get the switch for it too?

                If you can find the switch from a 97-99 acura CL it is a direct swap for an accord

                the heated mirror switch has a seperate connector so no need to add any wires into your stock green connector

                        I have the newer J32 CL switch somewhere think that will work?

                          01-03 acura cl?

                          yes it CAN work but you will need to cut and splice wires that you already have, my preference is to touch stock wiring as little as possible

                          how about you sell me that DCC

                            So the earlier CL's have a separate connector for the mirrors?

                            I've only seen like two CL's here but they were hit on the drivers side and the door panel is no where to be found with the switch.

                            About the climate control, PM me.

                              The mirror switch uses 7 wires and the heated mirror uses 2 wires

                              In the later acura honda cars they have one connector of 9 wires, the 97-99 acura CL is on the left and the stock one is on the right

                              that is a female 2 pin connector hanging off out of the picture a bit
