cbdallas The ST1 I'm planning to buy doesn't have a sunroof, so I think I might be better off getting the sun visor. Much rather have the mirror, but as I'm finding out...you can't have everything!

bd8134 I wired in an auto-dimming mirror with the home link built in. Used the existing mirror tab stuck to the windscreen. A bit of fiddling to get the right wires from the sunroof connector. Need an acc and a permanent live plus the ground.

While you are helping (in a way) there isnt a need to add to a post when information is already given. In this case the OP did do a search and didnt find anything. While this wasn't known in the OP we can usually assume that a member with almost 500 posts knows how to use the search button. Where a member with 5 might need some direction.

And as WhiteTite stated:


While this is great to do to find answers, I dont want the mentally of the users to be afraid of asking questions in fear of being "flamed" for not searching. We want everyone to feel welcome here. And directing people to the search button (even after the fact) really isn't welcoming IMO.
True story. My apologies, it's been a long day here too . I clarified my later response.

Please know the rules as they are stated, as well as the facts about someone's actions before making assumptions & assertions. Etiquette lessons go both ways.

To those who used your time & energy for helpful purposes, I thank you.
My last post wasn't about you not searching, I was letting you know that the Mk3 section contains a wealth of information. Not to mention that Homelink was a 2012 MY option only, of which, the ST was not made.

I was suggesting you widen your search parameters to include the section with the most posts and thereby, hopefully, garnering you the best possible results.

Consider this time used to help you in any future searches. And, most OP include, "sorry if this has been asked, I searched and couldn't find anything, but..." My apologies to you for making an assumption based on that lack of information.

To the OP: check the Mk3 section too, there are a lot if discussions that intermingle.

Please know the rules as they are stated, as well as the facts about someone's actions before making assumptions & assertions. Etiquette lessons go both ways. The reason I searched the ST section is because the interior color is different, and I want information that would be specific to the ST.

To those who used your time & energy for helpful purposes, I thank you.
