    Hi all
    I have a Uk 06 330cd, today I get in the car and find I cannot adjust either mirror from the switch, it was fine yesterday. However if I flick the switch to the right and select reverse the passenger mirror does indeed move down to show the kerb position, then move back up when I come out of reverse gear. I have checked all the fuses and run out of ideas.
    Is there a relay somewhere I'm missing ?
    cheers

    Ok, I've corrected your thread title.
    You don't have any relays for mirror functions, but you do have a seperate control units for them, item no. 4 HERE. Might be worthwhile unplugging and then re-seating to see if it makes any difference.

    Hi, yes but was hoping to avoid the hassle if it's a possible diy
    A further development is that the reversing passenger mirror dip now happens what ever position the mirror left/right switch is in, I seem to recall it only dipping if the switch is in the right mirror position but may be wrong....
    If it needs a warranty repair who would be recommended in the bristol area ?
    thanks nigel

    If it's a warranty repair Nigel, go to any dealership. I've heard bad reviews about DickLovette BMW so avoid them.

    The kerb dip should only work if your switch is in the left side...
    Seems like there is something wrong here with your module, which is behind the door panel.....requires you to remove a few torx T20's and then some padding behind that.

    To be honest, Id just go to a dealer - cant recommed in Bristol tho.
