The red dots are where I drilled the new holes from the inside. The outer skin of the door shows the oem holes. I had to locate and drill, then shape with a file, the rectangle opening for the tab end of the mirror bracket. It’s about 5 inches from the cluster of oem holes. I used the gasket as a template. The upper bracket attachment I installed with 1/4-20 plus nuts.

Here’s a tip, make sure the window is all the way down before you remove the inner door panel. You won’t be able to get to one of the bolts otherwise.

No welding necessary. It’s solid. I used stainless washers to backup the bolt head on the door bracket and put thread protectant on all the threads. The bolts from the existing mirror were the same thread size I need for the new bracket. I think M6.

Only for u dude. Lots of research to get it right! Can order from anywhere.
Guy I order from, gave me disc for group buy. Pricing is way better than net or the "G" part dealers.

1) heated mirror: 8SB 003 614-081

2) wiring to connect from mirror: 8KA 003 806-001 one end is for the mirror, the other is just cut wire. About 1.5m.

3) for the mirror, you will need a mounting kit: 8HS 562 691-002
This kit comes w parts needed for 18mm diameter mirror arm ( NL Army ) or
22mm diameter mirror arm ( Pur version )

Really appreciate the infos. If you ever take the mirror out again. Pls take pics of the finished product.

Will do. I may be in there soon to add the heated mirrors or to fix a noise I keep hearing in the window mechanism.

Fyi the circled wires are the ones for the signals. The other two are the heated mirror I suppose.

Thank you for awesome info Roverrange, I'll be attempting this install myself and all this kind of information makes things go so much smoother. Did you end up rerouting the wires to their new turn signal locations?

Are these all parts required to install heated mirror onto existing Professional/Pur style mirror assembly, or for complete swap from standard 463 mirror? I already have the professional (non heated) mirror kit from Puch but would like to go with the heated glass. Thanks!

The above are needed for the heated mirrors. Do your research to see if there is a need for a relay.

Post pics of your current setup. These mirrors recess into the mirror arms when mounted. The Pur version mounts differently. You will need the mounting kit: 8HS 562 691-002 to work with the mirror part number I posted.

Apple, I rerouted the signal wires to the new indicators on the lower a pillar. I had to cut the holes and purchase the bulb housings, gaskets, plastic nuts, screws and bulbs. I believe I got the housings and gaskets from expedition imports. Everything else from dealer.

FYI It was actually very easy to route the wires from the hole to the rubber boot on the door frame. For some reason, must be the way the sheet metal is attached inside, you can’t easily pull any wires the other direction, from the boot to the cut hole. The wires get snagged. I used marine grade wire connectors with heat shrink / glue for all of the connections.
