2013 Elantra GT: Homelink auto dimming rear view mirror
 
Just got my GT and I'm loving it!

Does anyone know if there is a home link auto dimming rearview mirror for this vehicle that can be user installed?

Thanks!

Anything can be user installed if you are handy. Unless the rear view mirror in the GT is different from sedan then a homelink mirror from 11 or 12 Elantra can be used. There are also quite a few mirrors sold under the manufacturers name, gentex. i put a regular auto dimming (not homelink) mirror in my car. Ran some wires thru the headliner down to the drivers side fuse panel and tapped off the radio fuse.

Yah fairly easy to install. I love my autodimming mirror

The only tricky thing might be if your GT has bluelink as well (is it standard or does it only come with tech package?). If so, then you'd have to swap them but also reconnect that.

Yes, my GT does have Bluelink in its current mirror. Do you or anyone know of a Bluelink capable and Homelink capable replacement mirror for this? I am pretty handy to give this a shot. Thanks again!

In regards to replacing the rear view mirror, do you have to remove the entire stem that is on the windshield? Or can you just unbolt the mirror from it's current mount? I haven't looked at mine.

I ask this because the last time I wanted to upgrade my old Saturn's rear view mirror, the auto glass shop said they could heat it up to remove it but they'd run the risk of breaking the windshield. I do not want to break my windshield.

I think this post on our sister forum for veloster may apply to you. Im not sure if the mount is the same but I hope Hyundai would be standard in all cars http://www.veloster.org/forum/38-hyu...or-sonata.html


Dark Jedi some cars have a different style of mount. I cant say for sure on GT but my sedan had standard wedge mount, one screw removed mirror. Maybe egore 24 can post pics if he isnt sure.

Thanks someguy! I just took a look at my GT, and it certainly looks to be the same mirror as in the instructions! If I buy the mirror mentioned, I would really like to have the auto dimming and compass working at all times. In the GT, just adjacent to the mirror is the auto fogging sensor. I'm wondering if anyone knows if that is in fact switched 12 V power with the ignition. If so, which wire should I tap into?

Thanks again!

Just an update for anyone considering doing this; I'm waiting until the accessory list comes out for the dealerships to find out the exact part number for the mirror.

If anyone else has confirmed information, feel free to post!

My GT has the auto dimming mirror and home link for up to three openers. Maybe only here in Canada? You could enquire about it.
