2011 Rubi Mirror Relocate

I am trying to determine how I can relocate my mirrors to my windshield and still maintain the mirror defrost function. Does anybody have information on how this can be accomplished?

First off welcome to JKO!

second, i dont have any ideas on how to do this yet, i guess you could get some aftermarket mirrors, and attach them to some windshield light brackets...

Like this

third, why do you want to move them to the windshield? y not get the mirror relocation brackets?

Agreed, Welcome to JKO.

I don't have exact details but I can give you some ideas. You're going to have to determine which wires in the wiring harness to the door powers the defrost function. You're then going to have to tap into/rewire those wires so that they will be attached to the relocated mirrors. Depending on where you relocate them to, you may have to cut into the body. Hopefully someone else here will have better instructions. Make sure that you take a lot of pictures and post a "How-To".

Are you permanently moving the mirrors? Otherwise if you're relocating the mirrors just to take the doors off then you're probably not going to need to defrost the mirrors. In my opinion I think the doors look silly with the mirros removed and that black disc to hide the holes.

Go Play Outside.

Thanks for the welcome.

I wanted to just relocate and leave them off the doors. However it's nice to have the defrost feature come the cold months.

I don't like the black plug in the door but it's better than moving mirrors all the time.

Why not just put the re-locate brackets on, move the mirrors in the spring, do doorless when you want, in the fall put the mirrors back on the doors, unless you plan on going doorless AND using the defrost function, in which case i think you have a bigger problem, nut warmers may be needed!

@Iron turn out I got the heated seat option. I guess that means I can safely go doorless now in the winter
