Definitely want to contact John because he can get them about $100 cheaper. But make sure your dealer knows how to download the software, every dealer can, but some don't know how.

Re: ("R" Kelly)

Oh by the way my car already had the pink wire installed. Here's the steps that I had to do to replace the mirrors.<p>1. Take off leather plate that attaches to handle using a bone tool<br>2. Remove the two screws in the handle<br>3. Pop the center's out of the fasterners that are holding the door on around the entire door<br>4. Pop the inside black mirror cover that looks like a triangle with bone tool<br>5. Grab door and lift upwards off the lip of the window enough that all connections are still connected but that you can get back to the power window connector.<br>6. Unplug the power window connector and put panel back on door temporarily<br>7. Use a socket and remove the nut that holds the power mirror housing onto the car<br>8. Pull the mirror housing off the car and fish the wiring harness through the factory cutout<br>9. Grab your new mirrors and insert it just as the old one came out. <br>10. Tighten the nut and attach to wiring harness<br>11. Reinstall door as you took it off by screwing in the screws and popping the pop connectors back out and then installing them and popping in the centers until they are flush.<br>12. Grab your old power mirror and use the bone tool to pop the paint colored cover off and reinstall it on your new mirror housing<br>13. Pop the mirror glass off the old mirror with bone tool and your hand and reinsert it the same way you pulled the old one off<p>Repeat other side<p>1. (This will be different from MY04 to MY05 and up)<br>2. Remove what is necessary to get to the climate control unit.<br>3. Push the tabs to get the factory 3 button blank cover out.<br>4. Insert the new button in the location that you desire<br>5. Insert the blank buttons in unused spaces<br>6. Reinsert the new 7 button blank cover <br>7. Reassemble the climate control unit per your MY car.<p>Go to your dealer and ask for software part number 8633766<p>For me it was $76.00 later and they work!!<br><BR><BR>

When you say you had the pink wire already installed, what does that refer to? Did you already have the button on the center console, or did you have to add that as well?<br>Thanks for the great write up....

Well Kelly's kit came with the pink wire for both sides to install, however, I didn't have to use that because my car factory harness already had the pink wire in the harness. I think it's pin 14. You can look at your harness to determine whether or not it already has a pink wire in position 14. <p>What I had to get ordered were:<p>Both power mirrors<br>7 position cover plate<br>button covers (will depend on how many you need)<br>Power folding mirror button

On the MY 04 it's REALLY easy:<p>1. Use weather strip tool to pop pen holder out. Pull straight out on both sides.<br>2. Remove two screws on the bottom that hold the climate control until in place.<br>3. Put the car in gear while turned off.<br>4. Pull CCU out on the bottom 1 inch and then pull the top down and then out.<br>5. Flip the CCU over and there will be three little tabs that hold the 3 cover face plate in, depress them and remove<br>6. Insert all the CCU back in and everything else except for your button, button blanks and 7 position cover.<br>7. Figure out where you actually want to put the button and install the blanks in the empty slots<br>8. Snap in the 7 position button cover<br>9. Take to the dealer.

Re: (Parts @ Boston Volvo)

Amazing the different responses you get from dealer to dealer...and prices too!<p>My dealer had that PN in the computer for the S60 and that is what is on my service receipt, you will be fine<br>Danny.<p>

Re: (slowrey)

It's a tad bit more difficult on my 2005. It looks like Volvo switched over to the cheap fastener pins that don't have the "pop-out" centers. Is it possible to remove the fasteners without destroying them as I did in a previous car?<p>Also, for anyone trying to do this, make sure whoever supplies your parts checks against your chassis code as there are two switch cover panels that were used for the '05 models and I initially got the wrong one.<p>Thanks,<p>George

Re: (slowrey)

I think i'll wait until I go to the dealership tomorrow to find out the best way to remove them without messing anything up and pick up extras if they will be destroyed in the removal process. It's always something.<p>George<p>p.s. Sean, how long does it take for the mirrors to fold?

Re: (ghodge)

I got mine from John (boston volvo - thanks John!) last week and am planning on tackling this job this weekend. Question: Do the side mirrors still work without the software, ie can I move the mirrors up-down-in-out to adjust them? The software p/n is just to make the mirros fold right? I don't want to be driving around with mirrors I can't adjust.

Re: (partridge)

OK finally installed my mirrors yesterday. Spent 2+ hours on the first one, aside from being caught off guard with touque screw in the door handle, I couldn't figure out how to remove the painted cover and the reflector, as they were not shown in the instruction. But I finally figured them out after studying the the new unit carefully. 2nd mirror only took 20 minutes. Pink wire is already in my door harness, so that saved a little time. But why can't they just use philip screws like everyone else?<p>Question: I didn't pay attention how the two wires were connected on the reflector itself, so I am not sure if I plugged them back on the right terminals. Does anyone know if the two terminals have + or - designation? does it matter if the wires are connected backwards?<br>
