I believe you need to twist your mirror arm 90degrees, it'll pop upwards towards the ceiling liner.

The harness you need will be located in the headliner, you might have access if you remove the maplight and follow the harness. Then push it through the front of the headliner where your mirror is located.

Anyone confirm? Should be pretty simple. Then you need to calibrate the mirror as mentioned in your user manual in the glovebox..

I haven't done this yet myself, but I've already installed the harness.. (I had to, 2.5i's don't come with the same harness as the STI..)

Back from the dead. I am about to order an auto dimming mirror with homelink, compass, and temperature for my 2005 WRX. Any tips on the install of this mirror? Seems easy aside from the temperature probe
