You gotta get the mirrors, the dedicated wiring harnesses, the switches, and I also think the higher end interior door panels to accommodate those switches if you have the lower end ones like I do. Ie, ltz door panels if you have an lt, slt panels if you have an sle. Am I right there folks? Then you need the bcm flashed with the vin of a vehicle that came with the power folders. Did I miss anything there?

^^ pretty much covered it if you want them to work like oem.
I think you don't need the door panels just the switches and door harnesses.

I just hard wired mine to a momentary switch.

Holy chet that's a lot of work for the powerfolding mirrors but gotta do it... So I also need the harness for the door panel... I can't find the switches that will fit my existing door panel... Ie. Like ltz tahoes or avalanches.... My bro has a 2012 ltz cc and the interior is completely diff the dash, door panels....

Default has anyone successfully added the power mirrors to a 2012 silverado LT

I just purchased a 2012 silverado LT. The only thing it did not have that I needed was the power side mirrors, but was told they could be added. Now, it appears after they removed the panels that it doesn't have the right harness or something. The whole door inside would have to be replace to match the LTZ. Does anyone know different and if so, what parts were needed and how did you do it? Thanks!
