MICU recall - anyone had problems since it was replaced?

Had the MICU replaced last week.
Only noticed yesterday that my wing mirrors wont adjust or fold in. This was the first time i had tried to use them since the fix so im assuming it has something to do with this

Not having much luck with my car at the moment.

Was just wondering if anyone one else has encountered any problems as a result of the replacement.

R2 - dont mean to be the most patronising person on earth but you didnt hit the 'lock passenger window' button instead of the 'fold mirrors' button? I did this one time a few months ago and totally pancaked thinking this is the start of it..and turned out it was me being blonde! lol

On the missus' 2.2 the right hand mirror doesn't fold in completely sometimes. Releasing and quickly pushing back the button does the trick most of the time.
We did not have the MICU replaced, ever. It's just (another) thing with this car I think. I'm starting to wonder if it was built in France...

Might be a fuse blown/diconnected after the MICU

I thought that might be the case but was just wondering if anyone else had had parts of the car not working afterwards.

Yes.

My dash board lights come on like a Christmas tree and I've had the engine cut out.

My wing mirrors have now been fixed under warranty.
It was nothing to do with the MICU replacement or blown fuse but a broken wire apparently.
