Question about 2006 Saab 9-3 2.0T
Electric switch doesn't adjust mirrors
Posted by Anonymous on
1. Check the fuses first.
2. If the switch doesn't operate either mirror it likely is the switch.
Carefully pry it away from door or dash and check if wires are attached securely.
If they are, check if the contacts are clean - if not, refresh with sandpaper.
Test before replacing.
3. If one mirror works and the other not, suspect either the wire connection inside the mirror or the motor. Remove mirror from its motor by fishing around for the retaining clip (easier done if mirror is turned to the extreme left or right). This will expose the wiring connections and the motor.
If the motor is suspected unscrew the back of mirror and pry off carefully to expose the motor mounting screws. You can then remove the motor and test it with another 12v power source.
Good luck !
