Turn it on a 45* angle to line up the slots then twist straight. One of the easiest ones I've ever done.

Re: WK2 Radar Detector - Mirror Power Tap

Was turning it the wrong way. Turn it slightly clockwise, push and then rotate it on counter clockwise.

Glad someone else did this before me and posted instrustions. This could have been a disaster. Lol

Re: WK2 Radar Detector - Mirror Power Tap

Thanks guys for the info. I managed to get my really old (bought 2 vehicles ago) and short (6") invisicord to work in my 2014 Limited. The wiring harness routing was a little different in the Limited than the pics in the thread. There was nothing on the blackened area of the glass except the hex bolt/mirror holder. But I think the harness going to the mirror itself was the same. I tapped the same two wires (bottom right for +tive and left of it for -tive). V1 is cup-mounted to the left and above the mirror currently (due to the short cord I have). I may relocate it later.

Re: WK2 Radar Detector - Mirror Power Tap

I tried installing the wires to my 2011 WK2 and I couldn't get the wires into the white connector. Did you take out the wire going into the connector and solder them together or anything? I tried pulling (kinda gently) on the wires to get them out but couldn't. Maybe the wires from my detector are too big and won't fit into the connector with the others.

Any insight would be appreciated. Thanks

Even then, it was a bitch to get connected. But in the end it turned out just how I had hoped.
My 2014 limited has a black connector as well. On top of that, it is 2 rows of 5 instead of 2x4. I tried putting the positive in the pink with yellow line and the ground in the adjacent slot (has a black wire in it) with no luck. Any ideas?

Re: WK2 Radar Detector - Mirror Power Tap

Just tap on the plug you see there with black to the black cable and then the red to the Red/pink with yellow stripe.

Done, Just did it.

Ok the trick is:

Press on both sides towards the back of the top elongated cover to release it and pull back from the mirror towards you from the top.

Then grab from both side the other black cover and pull both at the same time sideways to release the second part of the mirror back cover.

Once you have both covers out you dont need to pull the mirror out of the windshield.

Just tap on the plug you see there with black to the black cable and then the red to the Red/pink with yellow stripe.

Voila!!!! no need to pull the whole mirror down which is a pain to put back just took me 5 minutes.

Make sure you make the connection tight to the other cable or the cover will not fit correctly. Put the bottom cover first, give it a hard wack from the bottom to snap in place(not with a hammer Please with the bottom of you fist) and then from the top of the mirror install the other one.
