How are you all storing your garage door openers? The visor on these cars is solid and fat. Mine won't clip on without sliding off.

I'm debating adding a button to the dash next to the TPMS button wired to my opener. Any other suggestions?

Try heavy duty velcro or double-sided tape this way you don't have to drill ,or cut anything.

Get a Homelink mirror. If you are comfortable with wiring, see my how-to. You can get it much cheaper than the Mazda accessory.

Wondering if a stock button could be placed in the block , lower left side and if the opener is 12v as some are be wired there. Did something similar a few years ago and had the open under the hood in a out of the way place .

I keep mine in the center console compartment.

I'd love to do this, but it is a bit out of my price range right now, having just bought new wheels and tires. This is my long term plan though!

That is what I was thinking. I haven't done this particular install before, but I am comfortable with the wiring. The Factory Service Manual makes the dash removal around that piece look easy to access, so it is just a matter of making it an OEM looking button. Maybe Capacitive Touch??
