    Default First post: InvisiCord + rain-sensing wipers

    Greetings everyone, I have a new RD on the way and would like to hard-wire it with an InvisiCord or Stealth Cord. I drive a 2009 Volvo V5 with rain-sensing windshield wipers and a compass in the RVM. As a result, there is a plastic box between the mirror and windshield -- not the easily-accessible plug like the Infiniti G35. I gave the box a gentle tug and there is a little give but nothing that hints at how to remove it.

    Has anyone done a hard-wire with a setup like this? If I can remove the box, am I likely to find the necessary power connector behind it?

    Any advice would be appreciated.

    No idea. Can you not see any wire going into the mirror?

    Best advice I can give is swing by a dealership and ask one of the techs how to remove it. If they ask why just tell them you want to protect it so it doesnt fade from the sun

    Batman: yes there is a conduit that comes down from the map light/moonroof control panel and into the box.

    I think a dealer tech is my best bet...

    Thanks guys.
