Hi everyone it's my first post here, I couldn't find anything about auto folding mirrors in forum and decide to share how I done it.

Firstly I found and bought plug and play mod from china (I wish I could share a link but it disappear), after nearly 2 months it finally arrive.

Installation process took no more then 15 minuts, no tools needed (however, plastic panel removing tools are helpful)

1. Remove this panel - it's holding well on few clips
60505
60506


2. Then this one- check were the arrow is for you should find a plastic screw there
60507

3. Side panel first, just pry and pull it out, then the front panel by holding at the same time on bottom and on the side pulling straight towards you
60508
60509

4. Now just unplug this connector, plug it into harness and plug the secound end back it to place

60510
60511

5. Do the same on the bottom part that you alread took off.

6. Plug the module into harness and before you put everything back check is the mod working.

Congratulations from now on, when you close the car, your mirrors fold by themselves :)

ps. sorry for the dirty car :LOL:

Yes, this kit looks pretty the same, one that I bought was for right hand drive.
One very important thing, is your mirrors motorized and do you have the same console like in step 3 picture?
If not it probably won't work for you.

Ah I see. I naively thought this is all I needed to get power folding windows. I did some searching and found there is a kit available to add them but it seems to be more trouble than it is worth.

This would be amazing for me (I park on NYC streets and always need to fold my mirrors). Is this the same kit you got? Would your mirrors fold if you lock the door while driving?
My 2011 CT200H does NOT have the electric folding rear view mirror function --it does have remote control of the mirror's alignment (up-down and right-left). Is there a way to add the auto folding function to my mirrors? The link in this chat-line says that their module requires that a car have electric folding mirrors.

When I was searching I found this post on club Lexus. I'm sure the parts are still out there somewhere. Looks too complicated for me.

Feel sorry for you, I don't know why but in US they just didn't install the motors in mirrors. I've seen the instruction for installing THIS module and there is nothing hard about it, takes more time and have to be extra careful when taking out mirrors but apart from that it should be easy.

Probably Lexus trying to save as much money as possible. From what I've read the euro CT is easily the better version considering you can get powered folding mirrors, a better sound system, and a heated steering wheel.

Here is one from Ali : 28.99US $ |Car Side Mirrors Auto Folder Folding Spread Plug and Play Kit For Lexus CT200 LHD+ With Electric Folding Mirror function|kit kits|kit for carkit car kit - AliExpress

It does say LHD but for that price I would just buy it and try it. Wonder what the difference is between RHD/LHD, isn't the wiring the same only located on the other side?
Too bad my car hasn't got de folding mirrors...:rolleyes:.
It is totally different. I managed to communicate with the aliexpress seller and helped him to develop for RHD including the window closer. So it will be available soon :) I have attached the SS of our conversation.
Below are the diagram for the people who are interested to DIY.
