e46 m3 side folding mirrors

Postby kenysl » Tue Sep 14, 2010 9:54 am

I have several times when I click the button to folder the mirror, only 1 side of the mirror is folded. Several times only the right hand side is folded is one time the left was folded.

If i click it again and again then both mirrors would fold. This has happen several times since a long time ago already. Just curious if theres a way to only fold one side? what might be the problem if not?

Pry the glass off and spray lots of lubricant (i.e., WD40) onto the folding gears / motor and flip a few times. :D

So u think the motor migt be stuck? But I don't hear any noise at all when pressing button. But will try. This happened only several times anyway,thought it might be a feature that u can select sides to fold. thanks
