Hello -
I am looking for some advice...
I have been struggling to find complete mirror assemblies,electric, driver side and passenger side mirrors. The suppliers that I have gone to have compatible replacement side mirrors but the quick connect electrical plug does not match to what I thought was original parts on my Bronco. The electrical plugs to my mirrors are 3/4" in diameter. After pulling it apart, the male side has 5 pins and the female side has 8 holes. When I shop around the electricall plug adapters are 1/2" in diameter and have less pins - like 3. Can someone tell me is there is a supplier out there who may have these mirrors in stock. Thanks in advance!!!

Do your mirrors have the turn signal indicator in them? If so, they are rare as hens teeth, and that explains the extra two wires in the loom. I have 5th gen power mirrors goin on my 4th gen, and they have only three wires.

You have the turn signal mirrors that's why your plug is different. They're extremely hard to find. And you'll pay big money to replace them.

I'd offer my set that I've had for over 10 years, but not sure I want to part with them yet.

Yes, my mirrors have turn signal indicators. When I talk to suppliers, they have a tough time give me the specs on the plugs, 5 pin, diameter, etc. Any suggestions on how to fix this dilemma?

I am okay not having the turn signals in my mirrors for the ease of replacement. The plug would have to be rewird and drop 2 wire, I guess?

you can also add the turn signal function yourself. i've seen people hook up LEDs to the back of the mirror to do so.
