The door mirrors on my 164 have stopped folding. Have checked the fuse which is OK and the mirrors are still adjustable. Anyone know if there's a relay or a separate fuse for the folding mechanism?

Cheers.

If you pull up the mirror control panel with all the switches on it and have a hunt round underneath you will fine a small plastic box about the size of a fag packet, unplug it and open it (have to pry it open and the inside bit slides out) and you will probably find one of the tracks on the very primitive circuit board has burnt out. It's a common problem, I suspect that when the door motors get worn they start top draw to much current and instead of popping a fuse this board gets fried.

Get a known good second hand unit or risk a new one if it is indeed blown. I tried soldering a wire to bypass the burnt track but another part of the board track burned out....
