: Mirror Not Folding

So I've seen a few posts on this but has anyone came up with a solution? My driver side mirror will no longer fold in and out. When I hit the button the passenger side folds perfectly and the driver side sometimes will "try" to fold (I hear the motor whirring) but it won't move. Is there a way to reset or the mirrors? I've also tried manually folding in and out with my hands but it won't "catch" and get back on track. This is very frustrating as I live in the city and like to fold them any time I park.

The motor is going out. Had mines replaced under extended warranty. It's a whole unit! Part had to be color matched..

I hate believing that you can't just buy the motor and they make you buy an entire new mirror unit. Is there really no other way around this? Any idea on cost, it's simply not something worth paying $500 for.

Yeah, whole unit. I had mine replaced. It would fold in but it wouldn't come out. They can be had for $250-$350.

The mirror can be taken apart. I just replaced my broken frame and housing. Spent $75 in parts from eBay. Just depends on how much time and effort you want to spend. I was getting tired of looking at my broken mirror but had always assumed you had to by an entire mirror.
