Tip from having done mirror mods on previous cars. If you’re in a cold area make sure to bring your housing inside and let it warm to room temperature before removing the glass. Popping the glass loose from the motor ball joints flexes it slightly, and if it’s cold the glass can and will crack.
Random question. If you don’t have the LED turn signals in the mirrors is the wiring present for them?

Has anyone had any experience install this mod? If so, can you verify that features on the 2.0T Accord Touring mirrors are not affected Specifically, I want to make sure this mod retains or doesn't affect the following:
  1. Blind Spot Monitoring;
  2. LED Turn signals;
  3. Heated Mirrors; and
  4. Passenger side auto tilt down when in reverse.
Thanks in advance ...

EDIT: Never mind. The website says it won't fit for the Touring or EX-L Trims.

just wondering if anyone has had the mirrors working backwards like mine close when I unlock the car and open when I lock it. Any advice?
Just flip the polarity of the two wires going the the motor and it will work the opposite direction. Super easy, the connector should be reversible. The fix is on their website too (splice and reverse if your version doesn't have a reversible connector) : XGENAUTO Power Folding Mirror Motor Kit (Troubleshooting Guide)

Hi, this kit or simillar one works on all trims, I have EX-L. Problem is with more harder to do install. You need to depin mirror connector to get all wires out without cuting it. For me it was pretty easy, but somebody it can be pain. I also added two motor cables to original connector. Check photos
