Your description of the rear view mirror says with Homelink - that means you can pair it to a garage door opener, correct? I didn’t see the opening button in the picture. If it does have that capability, I’m interested.

I am so sorry. I don't know what I was thinking! The button has a power symbol, so I guess auto dimming maybe? But no Homelink. I think I just assumed that was it since it had a button.

Sorry again. Description updated to not mislead anyone else.

What am I, 0/13? :D

No problem, I just happen to be looking for one with the remote capability. Good luck with your sale.

I recently installed a HomeLink mirror from a 2014 Nissan Maxima into my 2013 Leaf: viewtopic.php?f=37&t=31513&p=591777#p591777

I also installed a used Homelink mirror in my 2017 S. I got it at a junkyard for $20 or so and while there are different types of mirrors, I remember nearly all the mirrors were of about 2 types. I don't remember the company (Gentech?) but my mirror didn't come from a Nissan car. I also found the little wire cover for it from a different car since the original one was a tad short.

In other words, you can probably find everything you need to upgrade your mirror on ebay or a junkyard. There are various options but the interchange is quite easy since many, many car manufacturers just buy the mirrors from one or two companies and many of the mirrors are basically identical.

That’s exactly what I did with my car, but my wife wants the same thing so it just so happened that I was looking for another mirror when I came across this thread. I just found one on eBay a few minutes ago and I’ll be putting it in her LEAF next week.

I’m disappointed the SV trim doesn’t have it from the factory but at least they have power for the auto dim so it’s not difficult to wire up the homelink version.
