Folding Wing Mirror (SOD) Repair

I have a 2008 Type S GT and my drivers side wing mirror no longer folds up all the way. My brother is going to replace the shut off device for me but has asked me to find out if anyone knows how many ohm's is the part for the wing mirror motor? He can do the repair no problem but needs to know this to ensure he gets the correct part. Any help/advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Don't see why not, the purpose is to make it weatherproof again so as long as your choice is electrically non-conductive it should do the job. Glue guns are pretty cheap though and have lots of uses.
