Duff Electric Mirror

The passenger side (RHS) mirror on my Spider doesnt work quite right

It moves left/right no problem, but it will not go up and down. You can hear the motor working but there is only very little/no movement of the glass.

Is it easy to take the mirror apart/get to the mechanisms as I suspect it could be quite a simple problem to fix, maybe just a broken linkage or somesuch?

Re: Duff Electric Mirror

If the mechanism is the same or similar to the 155 mirrors, if it stops moving but the motor works, the mechanism is goosed. - on the 155 the moving parts are plastic & the gear teeth get stripped. If you find a way to repair this, without replacing the entire mirror, please let me know.

Re: Duff Electric Mirror

Sometimes they just get out of position. Try pressing the down button until there is no movement then manually press the bottom of the mirror in as far as it will go.
