Mirror Folding Issue

I have a 07 328i sedan and the right side mirror will tilt and will fold to the window properly when I press the button, but it wont fold back properly and will go further than it should (i.e., wont stop).

I think the motor needs to be replaced, any idea how much one might cost?

Thanks!

Ask the dealership first.

I'm sorry....The dealership is the LAST place to ask!!! They want to replace anything and everything. Last time one of our customers had the same problem, they told him it takes 3 hours to remove the mirror!!! (15 min job for a monkey with a wrench).

Take it to an independent shop who actually cares about his reputation!

P.S, this is a VERY common problem, but as far as I know, there is no easy fix.

His question was the cost of the motor. Ask the dealership.

And the motor is not sold alone, SO...they will tell him to replace the full mirror!
