    Hi all of a sudden my Passanger side mirror just died.

    Working one day dead the next, nothing works no, direction movement and no dip when it's in reverse.

    I have checked fuses etc and had a play about with the mirror glass to check the motor wasn't stuck etc. So I'm guessing it's probably either the motor or the mirror module (anything else???) I did a search on here and there are tons of threads with similar problems but no-one seems to post up a solution once they get it fixed etc.

    A couple of questions to help me

    If something is dead (motor or module) will a diagnostic scan give an error code?
    Is the motor available separately and is it easy to fit (ie behind the mirror glass??)
    Where is the module situated in the car??

    The cars going in for a service next week and I'll be putting it on the diagnostics anyway.

    Where do I go from here, stuff like this drives me NUTS!!!!

    Well I had this diagnosed via an Indy during a service and apparently the motor is dead

    So anybody wants to point me in the direction of the best place to get a replacement? Or is it better (cheaper) to buy a full mirror from
    eBay and swap the motor over?

    Is there a difference to the actual motor or connections between years or models??

    ie will The motor from a saloon fit or does it need to be from a facelift convertible or coupe??

    ANY and I mean ANY advise welcome!!
