D1 door mirrors on a RRC?

4 years 3 months ago #8245 by James Howard
From a cursory inspection, it looks like the larger D1 door mirrors are a bolt-on swap to a RRC. Does anyone know if that is the case?

I would like to try it. Bigger mirrors would make street driving a little safer. Maybe next time I'm in the junk yard I'll buy one and go to Chad's and try it out. <!-- s:biggrin: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_e_biggrin.gif" alt=":biggrin:" title="biggrin" /><!-- s:biggrin: -->

Here is a reply I got on another forum:

Yes as mentioned, modify the mounting holes slightly, but the wiring is different on all but the 95, so if you want the electric adjustment to work you would need to rewire with the discovery switch, I have a set on my 88 Classic, but never bothered to wire them up (too lazy to grab a discovery harness from pick n pull)they do make a big diffrence.
I would find it hard to go back to a classic with the original mirrors..

I started this process tonight. Not a hard process without trying to wire it up. Two bottom holes should be enlarged (I put the bolts in without drilling them out but might when I get longer bolts), and you need to drill a new third hole. Would have finished but I did not have the correct length bolt to use both brackets. My brother has the correct ones. Not sure what the size is. I'll ask him when he brings them over. My '88 Classic has five wires and the D1 mirrors I took off a '95 have six wires. D1 mirrors could be heated. Not sure. Didn't bother to try to figure out the wiring as my passenger side doesn't work and I didn't remember to grab the switch from the D1. I never bothered to look into why my passenger side doesn't work while my driver's side does. The D1 mirrors make a huge difference in visibility even though they don't appear to be much larger. Glad I did it.

Very cool Glen. This is also on my list of mods for my RRC, though I was going to go with D2 mirrors. Not sure if there is any other differences.

I was wondering if D2 mirrors would work. Are either the D1 or D2 mirror heated?

Yes, D2 mirrors will fit a RRC. The front door frames on all 4 door Range Rover Classics, Discovery and Discovery Series 2 are all the same. So the mirrors are interchangeable among the three models. The wiring/mirror connections will need to be sorted out. All mirrors with a four wire connection or more should be heated.
