Question about BMW X5 Series
We have a 2004 BMW X5 (new to us) that the drivers side view mirror folds in and out on its own -- IE: closing the door, driving over a bump, wind, turning, etc. We can manually push it out but it moves in or out at the next bump or wind. The auto folding thing doesn't work which is ok with us as we just want it to stay in one place. Is there an inexpensive fix? Thanks
As far as i know the mirrors are a fault on the x5 i would check the button function and wiring that go to the mirror if not disconect the power to the mirror motors not sure how to do this but thats the only way i can think of

The power folding function of your exterior mirrors on your '04 H2 depends on a plastic gear to collapse those mirrors at the touch of a button. That plastic gear strips very easily. The service adviser at our Hummer dealership said that problem was rectified in later model years with a redesign of of the collapsing mechanism of those mirrors.
I don't mind manually folding our mirrors, and I was afraid to ask about the cost of the parts required to solve the issue. The service guy didn't volunteer the cost of the fix. Not typically covered by aftermarket extended service/warranty plans.

chances are you need to repl one or both mirrors, they are very expensive so if you can live with it you should,otherwise buy two from a dealer and remove both front window switches,plug 1 in at a time and see if only 1 will solve this if not try both, typically both are replaced
