Fold side mirror manually now.

I bought 2014 Mazda6 GT in Canada.

It does not have side mirror folding switch inside.

Do you know any kit and how to install side mirror folding button.

I already know lock folding kit automatically in EU market but it does not work for mine.
It works only for electric side folding mirror.

I already know auto folding kit.
From my research, it's a real PITA as the car is not pre wired at all. After 5 hours of research and not finding that anyone has successfully done it, I came to realization that I just would not have it on my Mazda 6.

I think it just need installing motor inside the mirror and wired to power.

SO, Do you know which motor and wire do I have to buy? any kit in the market?
Does Mazda sell motor and wire kit?

I don't want to change my whole side mirror.

I do believe there's a few guys over at the mazda3revolution.com forums that have done it successfully. Having owned a 2016 Mazda3, I can say that the wiring between the 2014 Mazda6 and Mazda3 is similar in setup. I would think if you can gain enough information from the thread over on the 3 forums, it should translate relatively well into your 6. If I recall correctly, it actually requires an ebay part to make it work as intended.

Definitely a PITA though.

Here's the thread:
