  1. 2018 Mazda3 autodimming mirror question

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    I saw the other post about adding the mirror, Im currently looking at a gentex 453 or 536 (but the 536 uses a connector at the wedge). So my question is for those of you with the autodimming mirror that came stock (GS or Touring + tech package), what model is the mirror? Would you mind looking...
  2. Retrofit Autodimming rear view mirror

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    My Canadian spec 2017 Mazda 3 Sport GT doesn't come with an auto dimming rearview mirror. Is it possible to retrofit one (without homelink)? I've seen this thread: http://mazda3revolution.com/forums/2014-2017-mazda-3-skyactiv-how-guides/34185-how-install-auto-dimming-rearview-mirror.html But...
  3. Auto-dimming mirror.

    2007-2009 Mazdaspeed 3 Performance & Mods
    I would like to retro fit an auto-dimming mirror from a MKII (BL) MPS 3, to my MKI (BK) MPS 3. Having auto lights and wipers, has narrowed my search to a OEM MKII Mazda 3 mirror, as it has the "wings" on the mirror arm to attach the windscreen mounted sensor cowling. So far, so good. I've not...
  4. Autodimming Mirror Mod?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    I find that I'm still being blinded by headlights when there is ambient light being detected by the front sensor. This is the condition I drive in 95% of the time. There are always cars or other forms of light ahead or above me. I'm thinking about tinting the forward light sensor to make the...
  5. Auto-Dimming Mirror W/ Homelink Problems

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    I think that I may have discovered a problem that is endemic with the entire Mazda3 2014 lineup with the optional auto-dimming mirror installed. If you are experiencing similar problems to mine like I describe below, then please let me know ASAP. I'm working with Gentex engineers right now...
  6. Auto-Dimming Mirror

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    This is the first car I've had with this feature, so it's new to me. At night with cars behind me, I can't tell if it is actually darker. If I turn it off, I don't notice any difference. How can I tell if it's working? :confused:
  7. Is the Homelink autodimming mirror a dealer installed option?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    I can't seem to find much info about this, Google tells me that the mirror is purchasable by itself, and that there is an installation kit for it, but I'm not sure if that is just for a replacement unit. My 3iGT is perfect, and has everything I want, except for the auto dimming mirror (and auto...
  8. How To Install Auto-dimming Rearview Mirror

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv How-To Guides
    This past weekend I installed a couple of accessories on my wife's new 3i Touring, and figured I'd take some pics and post up some How-Tos. Neither is very complicated (other is fog lights), but hopefully they can help somebody - I'll point out some mistakes I made. The auto-dimming mirror I...
