Hmmmmm??? I gotta get some, who's in?

Let me find out. . . I saw it though you know it was not like a Maxima so I did not readily identify it as being what I saw, I just though it was some switch because I KNEW power mirrors AIN'T COME IN THESE CARS other than a Max or a Z. http://www.cardomain.com/memberpage/222930 Hmmmmmmm??? Page #2 I think is where the P/M switch goes in a B12? I think? Page #4 shows the tweet.

But you are wrong many nissans in the late 80's had power mirrors just not their entry level car (sentra) my 89 240 had them almost all KN13 pulsars have them ( I have yet to see one without). Those pics look nothing like my 87 sport coupe but the area that looks like a blank for the power mirrors, on mine is a pocket and it is too big to fit the switch but yours may be different.

I put the S/C mirrors on this past weekend. On the driver's side, I had to elongate all 3 holes. On the passenger side, it fit fine, except the top screw won't go, no biggie IMO. There's a little tab attached with a tin screw on the S/C mirrors you have to remove, again NBD.

EDIT: When you drill your little covers, make the hole MUCH bigger than enough to get the lever through. Otherwise, you won't be able to adjust the mirrors, look at the covers off a sport coupe, the holes are huge, and for good reason.


My mom thought they made the car look newer and more expensive. Personally, aside from elimanting the problems of the "flag" mirrors (how they get moved around, you have to open the window to adjust, etc.), you also get a wider field of vision.

My only thing is that the mirrors overhang a bit (like 1/8th of an inch maybe?) over the triangle part of the door where you mount them. I'm not terribly concerned, as you can only see it from the inside, but I'm going to figure out how to "fix" it. Still, its a great mod, and it looks factory, not silly like those eBay "M3" mirrors. Gives the Sentra a "sportier" look (go figure huh?).

I had the same little fitment issues as you, but not nearly as bad. Ditto on drilling the control holes out a little bigger, as you need the stock covers from you old mirrors. I went one step further, stop by your local fabric place or whatever, pick up a 25 cent sheet of black felt, cut 2 circles about 1 1/2 inches round out of it. Cut a small slot in the middle, slide them over the mirror control rods, and put your covers back on. Gives a nice finished look and covers up anything you might see beyond the hole that you drilled. :thumbup:

It is a nice swap just take your time if you are into wiring like me then it will be a blast if wiring frustrates you take a few breaks to keep your cool.
Ps feel free to ask any questions you may have

well i went to the yard again, and someone had taken the passenger door of the pulsar i had seen. that didnt stop me. i pulled the entire wiring harness, and just as mille-16i said, its seperate from the rest of the wiring loom. i got the driver's mirror as well.

i just got the mirror hooked up! runs like a champ.

btw u gotta rout out the switch blank for the pw... best done with a dremel. for wiring u gotta hook up to a ground at the fuse panel. for power i chose the A/C fuse, as A/C isnt installed on my car.

im gonna get the other mirror shipped to me, along with some NX SE swaybars.

I was thrilled to see that the harness pulled out from the rest so nicely Also grab the door wiring harness it will make your job easier and you will only have to rewire your front speakers that is if you are using the stock wiring harness for them cause the Pulsar plug is different then the Sentras. Well glad to hear that others are doing this, I have only had one problem with mine and it was a pinched wire so route wisely.

i routed the wiring well, after wrapping everything factory-style w/electrical tape. just waiting for the passenger mirror...

i didnt use the existing factory speaker connectors. i just wired the mirrors stand-alone, using the connectors from the donor car. its a challenge getting the loom from the door jamb thru to the doors, but its done. looks like it never happened.

Nice wheels! Any other pics of your car? What options were avaliable in Japan for Sunny's? What makes that car the SE?:confused:


Our cars didnt come with power mirrors though, that would be other countrys.
