Thank you so much. It does indeed look like 0430 is the code I need to add to my ZCS. Thanks again!

Just FYI, I'm not sure they're auto dimming and I'm not sure how to check...

See this post from Qsilver7...

"Ditto, ditto, ditto...the quickest way to tell if you have EC or regular side view mirrors...is to look at the mirror glass itself.

If it has a thick black frame surrounding the glass then it is the EC (electrochromatic - auto dimming) mirror...if there is no thick frame around the glass...then it is the regular mirror:"

I've been tracking my FedEx used folding mirrors shipment all the way from California. California to Salt Lake City to New Mexico to Oklahoma to Tennessee and they arrived in Charlotte today but it looks like one day too late to get them before Christmas. One day sooner and they would have been delivered today. Damn.

Opened the box to inspect my mirrors anticipating the install today and...


Left mirror has a 2 inch movement (slop) from neutral position. Probably the gears and or hinge housing assembly. Either way, these used (damaged) folding mirrors are not going to work for me. Contacted the seller to return and refund. Bah Humbug...

I should have heeded my own advise. Fail.

Live and learn I guess...
