    Default '03 Vectra window/wing mirror fault

    Hi

    I bought a 2003 Vectra SRi 2.2DTi auto last week, which I am massively impressed with, however, I noticed a couple of niggling wee faults over the weekend.
    i) the electric wing mirror on the passenger side doesn't work.
    ii) the electric window on the passenger side also doesn't work locally, although it does work from the drivers control panel.
    Can anyone possibly shed any light on this?

    Cheers.

    I took it out of the door, dismantled the little unit thingy, cleaned it with an old toothbrush, reassembled it and refitted it. Worked first time. Just dust on the contacts or something.
    All is revealed in the link above...

    Anyone any ideas for the wing mirror? On close inspection I can hear the motor humming away, just no movement from the mirror itself.
    How do I get into the mirror housing to have a look at the motor, hopefully it's just snagged on something or is wrongly positioned.

    Thanks.

    To get into the mirror adjust it so its pointing into the car, then get hold of the outer edge of the glass and it should unclip and pull off. The cover can then be removed by squeezing the clips together, there are four. HTH

    Cheers. Managed to get the glass off in one piece, problem was then obvious, just part of the mechanism broken off due to wear and tear. Got a replacement motor from Vauxhall and replaced it in five minutes, no problem at all.
    All is now well with my Vectra!
