    Hi guys and girls,

    I join as from searches of the forum did not lead to me finding a solution to my current problems with my wing mirror.

    I jumped into the car today to pop to the shops (after clearing the snow). pressed the button to folder down the wing mirrors, however it appears there is an issue with my n/s wing mirror, which instead of rotating 90 degress, it rotated 180 degress (and therefore pointing down to the road.

    Has anyone else ever had this issue? If so is there a quick fix? Or a replacement part? Or a full module replacement?

    Many thanks in advance for your assistance.

    Stu

    Sounds like a motor replacement is on the books OP.

    Sorry for the delay in replying to the thread (one of those weeks at work)...

    It appears (finger crossed) to have sorted itself out... I took it to the stealer on Tuesday, the seemed to think there was a problem with the NS wing mirror.... however I've not noticed that problem.

    I will however remember the WD40 trick if it happens again.

    Thanks for your assistance.
