Hi, I tried searching for more info here but couldn't find any results, hope someone can help me here.

My 2007 2.0Dci Espace has a standard rear view mirror. I had been told they are pretty easy to replace by an auto dimmer version. Sometimes there is apparently already a plug behind the central cover, if not you would only need a 12V source to power it, maybe taken from the upper reading lights. I did open up the cover and found a connector, although I don't think its an original one. I will mease if there's 12V anywhere.

Secondly I ordered one from a secondhad store in Netherlands, Marusia parts. Now.....the connector has 4 wires...
Before I "trial and error" and blow-up the electrics of this mirror, anyone have a clue where to connect the 12V to??? See pictures below for the situation.

Many thanks in advance!

Cheers,
Gerald

No, that belongs to what's pictured below. With the new mirror came also all the covers which had the exact thing as on my current situation, pictured below. Both brown male/female connectors. I assume this is the car kit speaker/mic?

Check if the plugs you are messing with have 12 volts when headlights are on

Tnx for your help. The biggest problem however isn't getting 12V. I'm a bit worried about the mirror wires. As mentioned, apparently they only need 12V as a source. But with 4 wires to try a lot can go wrong when the wrong connection is made. The inside of the mirror I see a printed circuit board (not actually opened it, just looking via the wiring hole) Wrong current on a pcb can make smoke.... :)

Any standardization for Renault color wires?

Rgds,
Gerald

Im currently replacing my espace mirror with all electronic 7" type from ebay. Helps with the parking and acts as a front recorder as well. But before this I had one of these superwide 180 degree mirrors which lets you see right around the car. Quite large, but I had no problems with glare using this and you can see all the blind spots.

on the connector you are holding in you hand, with the ignition on, there should be +12v between the yellow ( switched Live) wire and the black (ground) wire, those wires will equate to the yellow and black wires of the 4 wire connector on the new mirror, I believe the other two wires are for the rain sensor.
