Folding mirror probs again

Hi guys im stuck with this really annoying folding mirror problem on my newly purchased Type-S GT
Looked at loads of threads here on the subject but mine is persistent
The car had a problem with the passenger mirror not folding so the guy at the garage replaced one of the SODs , problem fixed but by the time i drove all the way home the passenger stopped working
I had the covers off this morning checking the wiring still nothing, then swapped the SODs over to the opposite sides BINGO both folding mirrors, kept messing with them to make sure they were ok & put the covers back on
Half hour later i go out & the passenger one wont fold again !!!! just seems to fail a short time after being sorted
It cant be the SOD as it never fails whatever one i put in the drivers side so could it be a possible motor issue in the passenger mirror ?
Hope someone has had similar issues as this as its driving me nuts

Could be motor going bad mate or contacts are corroded. Not really common thing but it could happen.

You can try connecting motor directly and see if it folds but don't power car on since voltage peak can burn motor. Just see on ignition how reacts will it fold or not.
