Hello friends,

I have a Soul Red 2021 CX30 prefered package and plan to purchase an OEM CX30 Homelink rearview mirror from the Mazda dealer to replace the original "regular" rearview mirror.

My question is how difficult to do this task ? Do I need to get the new harness etc...

Any instruction and advice will be greatly appreciated

Andrew

I swapped my mirror for the Homelink and it wasn't that hard. The mirror should come with everything you need and instructions. My tip though is look on Ebay, the dealer will charge you many more $$$ and the mirror is used by several other Mazda's not to mention several other brands like Toyota. Here is the part number BCKAV7210A.

Thanks for the part # @TheShark . It seem you can have the mirror for around $220 US. That's actually reasonable.

Andrew, if you do endup swapping the mirror, would you mind writing a DYI instructions? It would be very helpful to those of us who are not early adaptors. :)

man, I want to justify 220$ to upgrade, but I have the premium trim mirror so I would only be doing it to not have a garage door opener in the car....this is one of those upgrades I dont tell my wife I did
Hello TheNationalDeb : I want to do the same but I am "chicken out" since I am not that "good mechanic". If you do it, can you post step by step for us to follow

Thanks

always a bit puzzled why people bother with spending money on the Homelink feature (unless it's standard) does no one get remote controls with their garage openers anymore? I got two with mine and keep one clipped to my visor.
Is there something else with the "Homelink" feature that I'm not aware of?

I have three remote controls in my car: two for my garage, and another one for a daughter's garage. Try to find the corrected one sometimes is a big task. I really want to get the "all in one" Homelink control, but read the installation instruction make me nervous.

I guess it all comes down to how comfortable you feel about DYI and how handy you are, for me the CX-30 was a pretty easy swap since the power was already there. My MX-5 was a little more difficult because I wanted the frameless mirror and the MX-5 uses the older framed mirror. I ended up getting a frameless mirror for a CX-9, fit like a glove but how it connected to existing wiring harness was different, what I ended up doing is pulling the connector from the new wiring harness that came with the mirror and connected it to the existing wiring harness and had to do a little repinning since they weren't quite the same. Sounds worse than it really was but worked like a charm. I probably should check to see if the connector is the same on the CX-30 as the CX-9 because that would save you some money, you can pick up CX-9 frameless Homelink mirror on Ebay for $165 brand new in the box.

Went to the dealer for a different issue, ask them for Homelink mirror, they "recommend" bring the car to the dealer for installation since it is quite "complicate" .

Look like I have to stay with the old, cumbersome remote controls for now

Thank you Sicnarf. I think it is too much for my ability. I skip it
It's not really that complicated if you follow the instructions but if you don't feel comfortable doing it then you probably are making the right decision. What dealer did you buy from? I noticed you are from Greensboro, I bought my car from Modern Mazda in Burlington.

So if I have the frameless auto dipping mirror, the homelink mirror should be just a swap with no need of dismantling things (apart from the mirror) and no reworking the wiring etc?

If you decide to do it, can you record and post the step by step how to dismant the existing mirror and install the Homelink

thanks
