Side view mirrors move in and out on its own

We have a 2004 BMW X5 (new to us) and the drivers side view mirror moves in and out on its own -- ie: closing the door, driving over a bump, making a turn, wind, etc. We have to manually push it out and it will stay until the next bump or turn. The auto folding thing doesn't work but we're ok with that we just want it to stay in one place. Are there any inexpensive fixes? Thanks

SOURCE: The wiper arm is broken and will not move at all.

hi bill im scott, im sorry to be the one that has to tell you this but it might be that you have rounded the main motor arm which is not as easy to change as just the wiper arm. if it just wiper arm then you will find a cap at the base of the arm which will pivot up with a little force and reveal a nut which will need undoing and most prob wil be loose. hence hitting wing mirror, if not the arm then it will take a lot of shifting the bulk head and remove whole wiper motor and inner arms which can be a bugger of a job.

SOURCE: 2002 Ford Explorer - Drivers side door lock, rear

Aside from the fuses, your drive side power door lock may be failing to work because of a bad door-lock relay system, or, alternatively, the locking switch/button, itself, is not malfunctioning and in need of replacement.

A great handyman site that specifies the above probable causes and more is the following link:

Good luck!

SOURCE: Hummer H2 Power folding mirror won't fold

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.

SOURCE: electric folding door mirror not working

Try helping the mirror move by hand. The pivot rusts from not being used. Gently work it around.

SOURCE: 2004 tahoe drivers side controls

If the drivers side does absolutely nothing, there is a chance that power plug that goes into the door has come apart. There is a rubber boot that goes from the cab to the door, that is where the wires run. The power plug is usually right before the boot or right after.

How to replace glass in Driver side rear view mirror?


Not sure of the X5 but on the M3 the mirrored glass portion of the driver side view mirror just "popped" onto the motor carrier in the housing. It was a little nerve racking removing and replacing the glass (my motor had died) but with care its possible. Suggest going to RealOEM.com site and enter vehicle vin information then go to vehicle trim and then outside mirror for details of assembly

2003 BMW x5 rear view mirror fell off how to get it back on?


if the mirror clips/slides onto a small bracket that is incorporated into the windshield then it is a case of sliding it back on , check that the ridge either side of the mirror bracket are'nt cracked or chipped as then the mirror wont stay in place ,on some models the mirror base sticks directly to the windshield so will need to go to a repair shop to get the appropriate glue , hope that makes sense

Make sure your mirror control switch is slid to the right. If the switch is in the left mirror position, it keeps the right mirror in the upward position when in reverse. When the switch is in right mirror position, it moves the right mirror in the downward position when in reverse. Hope this helps.

Sideview mirrors dont move certain ways.


I researched the maintenance manual. The fuse you need to replace is fuse 20 in the under dash fuse box. It controls side windows, washer motor, rear view dim function, and possible seat memory. There are a couple that link to the mirrors, but this is the one for this problem.
