it aint easy, to run the wire you gotta drill a small hole next to the black tube thingy between the door and the body, then you gotta poke a small hole through the black hose thingy and run the wire into the tube through that, keep feeding it and it will end up inside the door, you gotta be WICKED FUCKING CAREFUL cause you gotta run the wire around and out of the path of the glass in the window, so what you have to do is test it with the door panel off and then roll the window down so if the wire does get in the way of the window you can fix and rerun it before you put the door back together. This site shows how to run the wires inside the doors.. it's a power window install but it has some useful info about running the wires into the door. http://www.a1electric.com/install/vw/vw02.htm

good luck if you have ne ques let me know, i'll send u pictures of how i ran the wires for my signal mirrors

no, there's two, just too lazy to unwrap the other one for a picture. The pictures you'll see in the next couple of weeks will look way better anyways. Pics of the new windshield rear view mirror and these mirrors installed shall be up soon.
