Burco | Home

Has anybody used the 4131 & 5226 Convex part number(s) in your mods? Looks like they make the mirrors for it. Wonder if this wiring harness hooks to them? I want to start this mod, but thought the whole mirror may be a little cleaner. Anybody out there tried this method?

Re: Heated Mirror - Full Install

The Burco parts (4131 & 5226 ) are simply replacement glass (should something "bad" happen when you remove the stock glass from the mirror carrier). Using the Burco glass still requires the add-on heating elements and "do-it-yourself" wiring.

****WARNING****

Burco redi heat 3804's CANNOT be cut, even though the paperwork you get from Burco says they can be trimmed horizontally with the heating element lines. I learned the hard way Burco is looking for a better replacement then the 3801 and 3804 part numbers for me. I'll let you know what the part numbers are when I get them.

Bummer, so they don't fit 100% .. Wonder why SwissArmySuv told me that you can use the 3804's .. I once sent him a PM asking where to buy the 3801's online and part of his PM reply was

if I were to do it over, I would use pad # 3804 .. this pad is a little larger and a number of the guys have used it instead of the 3801.
So from that PM, I assumed the 3804's worked...maybe he or some of the folks using the 3804's can chime in and let us know how they got them to work ???

Re: Heated Mirror - Full Install

It was my experience (when I did this almost a year ago) that Burco was putting all sorts of different shaped pads into boxes labeled 3804.. I ended up using 3801's because I couldn't find a pair of 3804's that even matched each other - never mind the pictures on Burco's website.

Interesting Swiss. The 3804's I received are MUCH larger then those, but shaped the same. I cut them according to the directions, and no heat I called Burco, and they sent me some replacements free of charge, since their paperwork says you can cut them horizontally. The tech I spoke with said the newer versions CANNOT be cut

I think the replacements Burco sent me are a little smaller then the 3801's...
