#3 of 13 Re: 2004 Expedition outside mirror swap [jpringle]

I have a 2003 Expedition XLT. I bought EB mirrors with the turn signals right away 4 years ago - put them on and the same thing happened - no turn signals either side. I recently decided to get them working. I have the Ford wiring diagram.
Here's the deal. Ford did not run the additional wire on XLTs for the turn signals. Save money? A little less copper?
You have to hard wire the the wires from the new mirrors to the wire bundle under the dash.
There is an aftermarket mirror company that has instructions that are very similar:
I got the drivers side working right away - first try I probed the correct wire - white/green. I ran a jumper wire through the flex rubber between the door and the door jam and spliced it into that wire. Works great.
What I've been trying to find is the white with blue stripe that is supposed to be the left side wire - no luck. I've probed every wire under there. Does anyone know how to ID that wire or am I looking in the wrong place?

2000 Expedition, EB XLT. 77,000 miles.
My driver-side window has terrible squeak upon roll-up/roll-down.
Any suggestions I might try at home before I take it in to a shop for servicing?

Mine had the same problem. I took the door panel off, and sprayed silicone lubricant on any and all moving parts of the window. It helped out 90%. Take off the panel then reconnect the window switch so you can listen to where the sound comes from, then lube that section.

check your sticker.... Ford is not answering my inquiries any more. Dealer was sure they folded.
They are as confused as I am. My fifth new Ford suv. Third from this Dealer. Yeah I'm aware that the only broshure I could find states only Limited get power folding mirrors. The description on all other stickers is changed.

#10 of 13 Folding Side mirrors on Jetta 2.5 '05
Jun 23, 2007 (8:24 am)
ok. I'm not sure if anyone else have noticed. I have a '05 Jetta 2.5. I have read the manual inside out and found all the features of the mirrors (self-dimming, heated outside mirrors). 3 days ago, I was at a soccer field waiting in my car for other players to show up while also on the phone. There were few guys kicking the ball around. All of a sudden, one of the guy kicked the ball over the goal post and the ball came at my car with 30-35mph or more and the ball hit my side mirror and i noticed immediately that the mirror bent. I thought it broke. When I stepped outside to check, i figured the mirror folds. So i went to the passenger side and slowly apply the force to fold that one too. I was surprised after driving my car for nearly 2 years. I thought I knew my car inside out with all d features. This discovery forced me to go back and read the manual again and nothing about folding mirror popped up in there. The thing now is, is there a button to auto fold this that I'm not aware of? or the VW engineers expect me to manually fold this mirrors everytime?
If you have '05 -'07, please double check to see if you have folding outside mirrors. Please be very careful while trying this. Apply pressure gently and progressively otherwise, you might break the mirror.

This is really a shipping convenience. Think of the space that is saved by folding the mirrors, now multiply that time 50+ cars in a ship's hold and you have space for more cars.
