Yes, the arm on the Chrysler mirror is physically shorter than the Focus mirror. I didn't think to measure it before installing. I'll look at my friends junkyard next time I'm there and see if there's something else with a Gentex mirror w/ a longer arm I can directly plug in.

I'm not sure. I used a voltmeter and checked the plug until I found one (there's actually two) pins that are only accessory powered. I'll see if I can get a pin-out from the Ford dealer when I'm there Saturday.
