Citroen Xsara Picasso - Replacing electric wing mirror, connector mismatch - Amygdala

Hello all, I hope you can help me.

I had a broken wing mirror on my old first edition Citroen Picasso. I went to the breakers yard and they only had one left, so I took it. Everything appears identical except that the connectors are different, and the new one (on the left) has more wires!

It's not easy to see, but the 'new' replacement one has 7 wires, 2 brown, 2 red, 1 grey, 1 blue and 1 green. The old one only has 5, 2 brown, 1 green, 1 red and 1 blue.

So I figured I could take off the old connector and put it on the new one, but the question is, how do I map the 7 wires onto the 5?

Thanks in advance.

I should probably add that the wing mirrors are both motorized and heated, if that helps anyone understand what the wires might be responsible for.

Possibly the best solution would be to dismantle both mirrors and transfer the old wiring to your new mirror.

Suggest you wire the mirror as per the old one ie splice the same colours together. I suspect your replacement is a folding mirror and that's what the two odd wires are for.

I agree with the doc. You need to trace each wire to find their function.

Did you find the mapping out in the end- having trouble dismantling each- same issue reversed
