All, There's a great writeup on adding the mirror to an F60 here: https://www.northamericanmotoring.co...-retrofit.html

It is an easy retrofit by tapping into the rain sensor wiring that is already there. One thing, the rain sensor power circuit remains powered up for 15 or so more minutes after shutdown. The intended power tap, Fuse F52 located behind the glove box, powers down with the ignition. Does anyone know how to add the wire to the fusebox in the back? I've looked up in there and looks like I'll need to remove some vents and the glovebox, then remove the fuse box to get to the back to connect the wire to F52. There's already a 5A fuse in the slot. I suspect it is connected to the parking warning system, indicated by the fuse information sheet located in the fusebox.

Are there any how-to's on removing the fuse box to add a circuit? TIA.

Anyone have experience removing the top console? Called the roof function center in the wiring diagrams.

I've looked it over and pulled on a few sides, but I don't want to break anything pulling too hard if it wasn't meant to pull down. Google and YouTube weren't my friend on this - nothing I could find for a how-to on a F60.

Figured it out... pics shortly.
