If the motors all work when you press the buttons ( you hear them whirring),but the mirror doesnt move,then the plastic cogs on the drive mechanism are probably shot *** .
If thats the case its unlikely to be fixable,without donor parts from a working mirror. If theres no noise,it could be electrical or just stuck,which may be fixable.

*** Alfa changed the design at some time,newer mirrors have what i assume to be direct drive stepper motors rather than cogs,but i dont know when the change took place.My 97 and 98 cars have cogs,the 03 has stepper motors
