look at your mutliplugs, the wiring going to them and count- 20 wires means yes you have.

hope this helps

inbetween the door and the car - unscrew them to find lots or silver connectors - count them up -if they total about 20 then you've got the wiring for everything. If you have less then you may still have the mirror wiring, but it is less probable.

You may get grease from the door hinge all over you when you do this as they sit close by.

If you don't know what your doing - ie a complete novice then don't risk exploring the innards of your car, but if you have some idea then just don't snap anything

No, not all corsa's that are ready for electric mirrors will have the wirin in the multi plug. Most ONLY have it running up to the multi plug.

If your car is an SRi/GSi/GLS that did not come with lectric mirrors, windows + central locking, then its likely u will still have all the wiring running into the multi plug (so check as above).

However, if u own ANY OTHER corsa model, the wiring will terminate just before the multiplug. So what u need to do, is get down in the footwell, and count the number of wires in the loom runnin into/towards the door. Got bout 15-20, then ur in luck. Otherwise, tough luck.

Thats the alternative yeah, but to get the kcik panel off you need a screwdriver, a phillips, and a torx screw. I've just been in there playing about and it s apain in the ass, but as Matty says, its a sure-fire way to check the wires are there or not.
