    Default Folding Mirror Problem

    The passanger side (nearside) mirror 'folding' on my Signum has stopped working.

    It started to judder when opening and closing now it doesn't work.

    I am assuming there is an issue with the motor/ worm drive.

    I took the mirror off yesterday but it wasn't obvious whats the problem.

    Does anyone know if i can run a live feed to the motor to see if it is still working, if so what pins do i need to 'short'

    Electronic adjustment of the glass still works perfectly fine so i assume its not a fault with the door module.

    Drivers side still folds on fob or door button pressing

    For information its a '53' plate Signum 3.2 V6 with memory seats and the mirrors have only ever 'unfolded' by pressing the door button and both mirrors adjust individually, if that make any differnece

    Sounds like it had semi siezed and because you did nothing about it (ie, lubricate the mechanism) its now siezed totally.

    Have you tried oiling/greasing it at all on the pivot joints?

    Problem solved.

    Took the back casing off and it appears when the mirror folded it nipped one of the wires and cut it.

    One crimp connector and some tape later and its all working
