Re: 2014 Hardwire Radar Detector

Yes, the mirror and two trim pieces can easily come off all together. You can try to get them off individually, but if it all comes off together it's no big deal.

Also if you use the Invisicord...

Re: Clarification, please Re: 2014 Hardwire Radar Detector

The mirror will pull off but you definitely need to twist it to put it back on.

I did not put a fuse in. Yes, I realize this could lead to a problem, it is pretty trivial to wire one in if you...

Re: WK2 Radar Detector - Mirror Power Tap

I don't know if there is a way to fix that, seems like some use the dark skin and others do not. dark was the default, I have never changed mine.

Re: Clarification, please Re: 2014 Hardwire Radar Detector

Just pull the assembly as shown in the first picture. You won't be able to turn it because the trim will be in the way. You could try and remove the trim pieces individually first, though you may be...

Re: 2014 Hardwire Radar Detector

I suppose you could maybe just pull the trim pieces off and try and dig in there, dunno if that would give you enough room to work. Taking the mirror off is much easier and it really isn't hard to...

Re: 2014 Hardwire Radar Detector

I had the 12" cable but it wasn't long enough to tuck it under the headliner, it ran straight from the V1 across to the mirror. Maybe I wasn't creative enough with running it. I made a longer cable...

WK2 Radar Detector - Mirror Power Tap

Here is a DIY to tap power for a radar detector for a 2014 Overland. This may apply to a number of other WK2 models as well. While this is an easy DIY, modify your vehicle at your own risk. Poking...

Re: 2014 Hardwire Radar Detector

Re: 2014 Hardwire Radar Detector

Re: Chicago Area Group Buy

That was the deal I got. At least a few others seem to have gotten nowhere quickly with them, not sure why I did other than maybe it was because I bought a car from them 6 years ago.

Re: Chicago Area Group Buy

I'd say 4 under is a good number to shoot for. I can't imagine getting much lower than that. Surprised to see anyone get to 5.

As mentioned earlier 2% can be beat by a little bit. That is a great no haggle price, though.
