Wing mirror alignment

Does anyone know or have visuals for how to dismantle and repair the wing mirror mechanism?

When the passenger side mirror resets and comes to a stop it goes far beyond the point where the mirror is usable.

I think it simply needs realigning.

Diagrams and advise would be amazing.

The official Honda approved method is to simply pull/force off the back casing of the wing mirror, but I found that using a trim removal tool much easier. You can then access the SOD to either repair or replace.

SOD tested, it's more the motors and whether they can be replaced!

I hate taking the covers off, it always seems like it requires too much force.
