I have a problem with my passenger door mirror, when I select reverse the mirror does not move down as much as the drivers side, and will not return the original position afterwards, has anyone has the same issue?

Thanks

Paul

Mine was playing up for a while. When I changed my Battery I've not had an issue since. You could try disconnecting the Battery for a while and see what it does.

Another one is to keep reprogramming the memory buttons but I found it didn't last for long

I think that the gears sometimes gets dirty in the mirror mechanism - Ideally I woudl remove the mirror and clean whatever is inside and put some grease inside. If it is not so bad what generally helps me is just carefully move the mirror with hand, backwards, forwards and side to side and then usually it starts working again. It basically brakes the dirt which would makes the mirror mechanism to bind, but if you not careful you can get gears broken inside.

Hi Paul,

I had a similar problem with my passenger side mirror not tilting down as far as it used to.  I think it is, like Linas says, dirt in the gear mechanism.  I took apart my mirror using this excellent guide:

 

However, not long afterwards my drivers side one started doing the same.  In the end I had both replaced by the dealer under my extended warranty.

Thank you all for the advice, looks like i might be taking the mirrors apart when the weather is better, I am changing the puddle light bulbs to LED, so can do those at the same time.
