Hi, wonder if anyone can shed some light on this. Just tried moving my offside mirror and it will only snap into place either folded forward or back, not in the central location where usable when driving.
I’m afraid I have some bad info for you. The problem (and mine also) is that a tab inside the ABS rotating house has been broken off. That tab takes care for the proper position. I’m 100% certain the SOD works fine. I’ve connected both SOD’sand the other mirror works flawless. I took some inside pictures of both mirrors so you can see the issue which can’t be fixed because its Die Cast metal.
I didn't manage to fix it because the issue is made of Die Cast iron.
Therefore it can't be welded. Even bonding with 2K won't help either, the electric motor which pivot the darn thing is way too strong for any kind of bonding.
What i did :turn ignition switch on, pressed the mirror button and as soon as the mirror was in position, I'd turned the ignition switch off and then disconnected the SOD.
(I did hit a garagedoor with the right mirror at a speed of 25km)
Thanks for the reply! Well, this sucks. I can only guess what an authentic Honda mirror will cost. I haven't hit anything so maybe someone has kicked it or something
Do you know if it can be welded together maybe?
Is it hard to access the SOD ?
Edit: Saw that you wrote that it couldn't be welded. Why can't it be welded? I know nothing about welding tho..
