Wing mirror light

Hi
Can some please tell me if it is possible to connect additional puddle light to the same ones under the front doors.If so would it be a case of scotch connector on the same wires to the current ones.

I would like to see if I can have some lights under my wing mirrors that come on when I unlock the Disco.
Also do the puddle come on the same time as the cabin interior lights do when I unlock the car.Or do they only work when the door is opened. Thumbs Up

Try Narpy as he has wired up some impressive lights in his wing mirrors (indicator's though)....

Its not a kit....

Narpy fitted them in from scratch .... Whistle

So from a very 'niave' knowledge the basics 'light' in the mirror has been done by Narpy just the type needs to be adjusted for what you wnat to do Laughing

Cheers Bobs. Embarassed

Beno2 you need these two links. Watch the videos, understand how the wiring is sorted and decide what it is you need to buy and use. Wink

Watch this:

Then watch this, it follows the previous link:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iqPWgbc5f2U

That's all you need. I followed the wiring info in those two and then made and wired up these( I already had the chrome covers ):

They're only indicator repeaters but the puddle light option can also be modded using the Youtube links and your own initiative Wink

There is no wiring, for lights inside the wing mirror, you have to put it there yourself buts it's really not difficult.
You have to remove the door card and run cables, all of which can be hidden nicely, up to the wing mirrors.
The details of how to do this are in the two video links. Wink

Details on how to remove the door card are here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YMxHkyj6PSM

You can buy off the shelf mirror covers with lights etc. built in, but at £100 per pair I thought they were expensive so made my own from existing covers.
There are cheap mirror covers on E-Bay and flexible LED strips that can be used.
In case anyone is interested in making their own, I used these: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/2x-Amber-Soft-9s...35d6896ec7 and slotted the mirror covers. Thumbs Up

Almost everything they sell comes with a 'how to' video -you'll find door card removal on there Thumbs Up

Can confirm , after damaging the plastic mirror plate that there is no wire lurking for a wing mirror puddle light behind the glass. Wish I'd read this subject before but hey ho. Here's a photo of the heated mirror glass wires , electric mirror wires and power fold wires.
Not giving up though. Just need to find a salvage D3 with the right wires. Hmmm.
