How do I add missing extras to my new Galaxy Mk3 2015
« on: March 08, 2020, 12:25:18 AM »
I recently pick up a Ford Galaxy 2015 2.0 TDCi Zetec (WA6 [2006-2015]) for a great price.

The problem is that there were extras I really want that the car doesn't have. For one I have a carport and need to fold the mirrors in before parking... the lack of power folding mirrors is truly an issue for me.

Anyhow, these are the extras I would like to add if at all possible:

  • Power Fold Mirrors.
  • Proximity Sensors.
  • Reverse Camera with screen somehow?
  • Dash Cam.

Does anybody have an idea if this is possible and, if so, how would they approach adding them?

Dash cam should be easy - if its front only you want one of these https://www.amazon.co.uk/Nextbase-Hard-Wire-Kit-Camera-Black/dp/B07XRNBKNJ/ to go with the dashcam, find a suitable fuse to supply power from the fusebox and tuck the wiring out of the way (behind the door seals and above the headlining is usually enough to keep it out of the way).

Don't know on the rest of them, you can buy aftermarket parking sensors which you drill holes in the bumper and wire up. I've also seen reversing cameras that link to a screen that sits over the rear view mirror, the difficult bit is getting the wiring out of the way somehow.

Folding mirrors not difficult(ish) but may be expensive.  Need the mirrors and possibly a change of BCM, depending on a number of factors.  If you search online, you will find numerous threads on various forums that describe how to do it.
