Does anyone know the part number for the pins in this connector?
Still no luck on pins for your retracts!? Do you have a picture of one of them outside of the plug housing? I can't recall what they looked like.

No luck! I made it work using parts from CycleTerminal - I reterminated the mirror-side and the door-side so it plugs-and-plays but still not OEM.

So I was testing for turn signals under the dash with my test light and found a green plug under the drivers side kick panel. The tan wire on the top right is the 12v+ positive right turn signal and the gray wire on the bottom left is the 12v+ positive left turn signal. This was in my 2017 Type R, could be different on other models.

I've been researching a lot looking at many threads, and this is just what I was looking for. Thanks for sharing!

How about installing this without the lane camera. Can the same parts w/o lane watch, and install process work the same? Since I have a LX-P Coupe.

It seems you'll just need the housings that don't have lane watch, but have the provision for the turn signals.

That’s what I was thinking. Install seems a bit tedious and intensive though.

I actually found some aftermarket led side mirrors on eBay. Looks to be plug n play, based on the mirror. But mentions something about having a 7-pin plug. I have no idea if mine has that or what.

Not a need, but a want. Seems like a cool mod to have for my GenX.

If your mirrors are only power adjust, they most likely have a 4 pin connector. My CTR mirrors only have power adjust, and when I once had the door panel off, I only saw a 4 pin connector for the mirror.

Overall, if you're looking to add the OEM turn signals with new housings as shown in this DIY, your 4 pin connector would be unchanged, and you would only be running two additional wires from the mirror housing that is not part of the 4 pin connector.

I appreciate that info, the 2 additional wires I assume are the power and ground for the LED light ?

Yes, that’s how I did mine. The turn signals I purchased from AliExpress came with the bottom portion of the mirrors, led turn signals and wire harnesses (just positive and negative wires for each side). My factory front part of the mirror on my ctr didn’t have the cutout for the turn signals so it looked a little funny. I ordered the touring mirror housing for the left side and the euro ctr housing for the right side because the euro ctr doesn’t have lane watch.

The US sport touring’s come with camera and turn signal you can just order this part # for the right side:
76205-TEC-Y11 (does not include the led itself, this is just the housing)

These are the lights I was seeing on eBay as well. Apparently the driver side mirrors are out of stock, just passenger side available.

I’m assuming these mirrors provide power for positioning the mirror element as well as heating/defrost.

In my case I only benefit from the electrical portion of positing the mirror element. Since mine doesn’t have the defrost feature.

This is the list of the items I ordered:


1. Turn signal mirrors (about $40): [https://s.click.aliexpress.com/e/CD2xdlpe](https://s.click.aliexpress.com/e/CD2xdlpe)


You can 100% just use these if you don't mind the front of the mirror not having the cut out for the leds


2. Left factory mirror housing (about $30 shipped): Honda Part # 76255-TEK-M01. Can be ordered from anywhere but I purchased mine from bkhondaparts.com


3. Right factory mirror housing:

76205-TEK-M01 (about $50 shipped) - no lane watch must be ordered from Europe.


76205-TEC-Y11 (about $88 before shipping) - sport touring mirror cover with lane watch can be ordered from any dealership.
