Ordered from Tousley last week and came in Monday. Installed it Wednesday night. As no surprise, there is no wiring for it so I tied into the roof console for power. Wife likes having to have the homelink like in our truck for the garage doors and having a larger and lighted mirror is an added bonus. We're not worried about the passenger side having a non-lighted and smaller mirror so no changes to that one.

ParT number is CM5Z 5804105 FA and Tousley sells it for $74.62.

How did you tie into the roof console for power? What did you have to take apart to get to the wires??? is it easy to fish the wire over?
Thanks, some details would be helpful!

Yes, I fished wire with a hanger and removed the cover for the sunroof motor/button area at the headliner. Tied into acc. power. No pics as I felt it was pretty easy stuff.

I just got my 2013 Titanium and homelink wasn't even an option at all. Looks like I'll have to do this install as well.

I'll have to check with Ford to make sure it would affect my warranty status though. Oy.

It should only affect the warranty with what you modify/replace like the visor and if you tied into the electrical and something from your work caused a failure to something else. I wouldn't be concerned.

Hello Nutty, or anyone else who did this. HOW did you removed the cover for the sunroof motor/button area at the headliner ??? I need instuctions as I dont want to mess it up!
I pressed in both sides of the switch assembly and it comes down partially. The Sunroof switch side has a metal clip that lets it come down farther, then the driver side blank switch, but I can not get them to come out with out further instructions.

Thanks for any help please!

Ok, I got it now. Open The Sunroof and between the headliner you will see 2 metal clips that hold the switches in. Use a long metal flat screwdriver to push in on the clips, there is a small bend in the clip so it will stay pressed in so you can do the other one also. You may need another screwdriver to push the switch assembly down. Unclip the connector. I tapped into the Blue for Positive and the Black for Neg. on that connector. Fish the wires in with a hanger and your all done.

Got the visor before Christmas and over Christmas Vacation I put in some "Peel & Seal" on the roof and trunk sheet metal. So I had the headliner down. There is a connector for the visor power already there. If you pull down the driver's corner of the headliner it is right there glued to the liner. it is near the door and not too far from the visor mounting hole. Soo I think if you pull the door seal and have the old visor out you should be able to pull the headliner down far enough to plug the new visor in

So if I'm reading this correctly, this would be a plug and play mod?

yes. I had started out looking to do the insulation and the I thought that I would have to cut and wire the visor. But when I pulled the headliner down I saw the socket, put a meter on it an it is 12V on all the time. Put the plug in and the vanity light came on then programmed 2 of the 3 switches. Both garage doors opened. Also there is a similar socket on the passenger side.

I just installed the 2012 visor (within 8 hours of taking delivery) in my new 2013 Titanium . Took about 5 minutes with the toughest part being getting the screw head covers off to get to the T15 screws. A gentle tug on the power cord from the existing mirror brought it out where I could reach it, swapped over to the new visor and poked the connector back into the opening before reinstalling the screws and covers.

I still don't understand why Ford decided to strip down the 2013 Titaniums as much as they did. I get that there were/are issues with the rain sensing wipers (the ones on my Edge act possessed) and that the electro-chromatic mirror suffered from droop (was Viagra an option?) but what was the issue with the Homelink visor? [confused]

Thankfully I found out about it being removed on the 2013's from this board and got the right one on order from Tousley.
