Expert:  George H. replied 10 months ago.

It is the layout and function for each connector on each mirror. I cannot email but I can post links to the info here if you wish.

Expert:  George H. replied 10 months ago.

The 99 should have 4 wires, can you post a picture of the connector?

Your 95 mirrors

Your 99 mirrors.

Let me know where you are seeing only 3 wires on the new mirrors. Are you sure they are 99?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
on the connector plug, & yes that's what I ordered when I bought them
Expert:  George H. replied 10 months ago.

See the diagrams I posted above and focus on the left moirror at the bottom. On both you can see that they have 4 wires going to the mirror motors?

Lets work this out so you can get these working. It may take some back and forth. I am looking for the connector view themselves.

Expert:  George H. replied 10 months ago.

This is the 99 connector.

Where did you get the mirrors from?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
cannot find the diagrams above,only what has been dis cussed already?
Expert:  George H. replied 10 months ago.

There are links in blue where I posted the diagrams?

Things like "This is the 99 connector"

Are you on a real computer?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Ok all I am getting is a blank page when I click on 99 connector, & yes I'm on a real computer

Maybe you have links blocked? You will have to enable downloads, these are .pdf on Dropbox. Maybe wait a bit and see if your popup blocker is blocking it?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Ok I guess I will have to go elsewhere to get my answer & chalk this up to a23.00 dollar learning experience.Thanks
Expert:  George H. replied 10 months ago.

Wait, all you need to do is hang in there and you have done nothing yet to be charged $23. You only placed a deposit not a payment.

What are you seeing? What computer are you on? Apple or Windows?

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
I got tired going back & forth & then you lied when you told me the $23.00 WAS PENDING UNTIL I GOT AN ANSWER.I will do my best Not to recommend just answer to anyone.Like I said a $23.00 dollar lesson.
Expert:  George H. replied 9 months ago.

I didn't lie, the deposit is held until you provide a rating.. Just contact customer service if you don't like they way it works. I don't have any control over your account or payment. The rating is only for my service not the way Just answer works.

Let me know if you want to get to the bottom of this by telling me WHAT YOU ARE SEEING
