hey guys

noticed on my 33 the passenger side electric wing mirror folds in fine, but wont fold out 100%, gets to about 70% then flicks to 90% and stays there unless pushed...

not sure if this was due to my father pulling them open not knowing they were eltric or if its always been like that (only owned the car a few days)

any advice on how to fix this?

Thanks
Chris

On my old R33 when I turned the engine off you could get the mirrors to close and then open when you re-started. However I cant get the ones I've just fitted to my new R33 to do this. Any ideas?

Mine closes and folds out fully but I have to press the button to do so whereas before it was all automatic which was very handy.

my drivers side one does same thing, folds inwards but doesnt go out at all. i'll probably have a look at it some day but to be honest it doesnt bother me enough at the moment to warrant 2+ hours of a job lol
