Hello my name is ***** ***** I will be assisting you with all of your vehicle questions today. Give me one moment while I review your question and come back with a answer. Please be aware I do not know your skill level or abilities so I will be asking a lot of questions and in a lot of cases we will respond to each other quite a lot before we find a solution. As far as phone calls are concerned that is the system prompting you, not me, and they do cost more money, I prefer text but in some cases a phone call is required.

You may or may not have that option the only way to tell is to pull the driver side panel and inspect the harness that is there and check for power on the pink wire should be labeled #7 and there is a relay that feeds it under the right hand dash make sure that is there as well

I only want to know if it is possible to swith the mirrors without rewiring the harness.
I have heard that you can move a pin and it will be possible.
