Replacing manual mirrors with powered mirrors

Ok, so here is my dilemma. I went to a junk yard today, which was quite a feat in itself, since I don't live near a good one. I was in Kansas City, and chose to make the most of my trip and head to the pick-n-pull. I was attempting to find manual mirrors from a 1997+ so that I could upgrade my 95. I couldn't find any manuals, and I actually only found 1 1997+ in all of Kansas City. I ended up getting powered mirrors since I could not find any manuals. I got the wires down to the first disconnect. I was unable to get the switches since they were already picked.

My question is, if I find the switches, is this an easy switch or will I have to switch out the manual locks and windows too? I am thinking about just installing them and not hooking them up to anything and adjusting them by hand. Any thoughts?

The mirror switches should of been on the center console. So no, you wouldn't need to replace everything. beyond that, I don't know.

Thanks for the info! I will try to find another junkyard that has that year so I can pull all the wires and console from it.
