that is what i thought if doesn't have them it doesn't matter me.
The 84 turbo wagon I parted out years ago did not have power mirrors, but one that was in the junkyard about the same time did. Check your wiring is the best way to tell.

from last week
my treasures from the junk yard 1/4/12 grand total of $35:grin:
the head light swap:D 1/6/12
also jacked it up like this(not for long in the rear just long enough to take off the wheels and hubs to check if the break cylinders where leaking which they were not and to check the beaks they look fairly new around 80%)

Great job on everything!

went to the junkyard in portland and found a harness that will work i just need to do a little re-arranging because it was off a 86 turbo 4wd xt-6. thats all i got but there were 2 other xt's non-turbo, 81 ea81 wagon with power steering and power windows(it had a weird center console with the power controls that was the low stlyle like a brat but was factory), some loyales and gl's.
