    Hi all,

    Over the past few weeks my electric folding mirrors have started playing up (I have to press the button really hard to fold them and it seems to take longer and longer each time to work). Anyway, after folding them a few nights back I now can’t unfold them again.

    I am presuming the switch has gone, so I will check this first. Can someone advise where this is located and how I get to it?

    The button itself is in the same panel as the power mirrors toggle on the driver’s door pull, so I assume it is in under that panel or somewhere near?

    Cheers in advance….
