fixing broken electric wing mirror
yesterday i found out some undesirable had pushed my drivers side wing mirror the wrong way (away from car) I pushed it back but upon testing the mirror will only fold a tiny amount sometimes not at all , Iv read about the resistor bug but am sure the undesirable vandals have damaged something more.
Took it to a local garage who didnt even bother to take apart , just said most likely teeth on motor broken and to get a new unit !
Any chance this is a issue I can fix by replacing a part on the motor or do I have to get a whole new wing mirror as these are sealed units ??
ps can someone link to a take apart guide as I'm confused which method is best to diagnose or get acces to the internals
