Question about Subaru Legacy

1 Answer

I have a 1995 Subaru Legacy GT and it has the powered folding wing-mirrors. They don't fold properly (L/H folds in but not out, R/H makes noise but goes no where) - are they sealed units or can I change the electric motors inside and if I can change motors can this be done without busting the mirror's glass??? Thanks!

    Hi, Thanks for that fast reply! Thats what I thought myself really, I have another car same for spares before it goes, with working mirrors so I'll just swap them over - just wondered if i could avoid hassle of virtually taking door cards off to unbolt the mirrors! Thanks for your help...

Hi! Used to work on one myself but didnt bother to fix for its sealed and got high percentage of breakage. Buying a replacement sidemirrors from the junkyard will be better plus wont cost you much. HOpe this helps and have a good one!

Wing_Mirror_Problems


Shaun,
I've never had to disassemble a Jeep power mirror. One of two possible problems here. Depends on how Jeep conveys the power to the "wing". If they use brushes and contacts, it may just be that the brushes got dirty when you folded it in [onto a corroded contact area] If this is the case, spray some penetrating oil into the gap between the wing and the base. Then fold and unfold the wing several times to clean the contact. Make sure that you have the wing pulled all the way out. There should be a detent that you can feel.
If they use a wiring harness going up all the way inside the wing, one of the wires has broken. you would need to remove the mirror, disassemble it and repair the damaged wiring.

2007 passenger folding mirror will not work


{: ) Have someone control the power fold buttons, while you check closely the passenger mirror. If you can feel or hear even a faint hum of the motor while commanded, try giving it a little help, but don't force it if you think it doesn't have enough power to extend or retract itself. The motor could be really stuck or inoperative.
Sometimes when the mirror has been accidentally or manually folded, it needs to be reset by just pressing on the fold buttons a few rounds and let the mirrors fold by itself. Like an exercise.
If you hear the humming noise whenever the fold buttons are pressed, we can assume that the circuit on that side is ok since it is responding electrically, and that a jammed or stuck mechanism is preventing it to move.
If you don't feel or hear any humming, as in totally no sign of response, then there will be additional considerations before deciding to go for a replacement mirror. You will need to confirm if the fault is on the wirings, a door module, or the mirror motor itself. A scan tool test may be recommended for effective diagnosis.
The power fold mirror can be serviced as an assembly. So, goodluck.

There is a special paste you can get from any Mercedes dealer to apply to the mirror folding mechanism. This is a well known problem that Mercedes issued a service bulletin about. Just describe the problem to any dealer and ask them if they could get you the appropriate paste for you.

Remove a wing mirror cover to fit indicator lens on the wing mirror for a mercedes c220 cdi 2003.


If you have electric folding mirrors fold them in, if not fold the mirror back against the spring (not easy as it is quite strong). Looking from the front, to the mirror cover side of the spindle on which the mirror pivots if you pull it forward, you will see the end of the main mirror body which has a groove it it. At the end of the groove there is a springclip which can prised up using a flat bladed screwdriver. It is easiest to place the blade under the clip and twist the clip to release it. Once fully released the cover can then be withdrawn. Refitting is the reverse of the above but if the cover does not automatically clip in place you may have to force it back with the screwdriver.

Wing mirrors on 06 plate Golf TDi


Has it ocurred to you that your wing mirrors are not the electrically folding type, most are not. The switch on the drivers arm rest for adjusting the mirrrors will have a separate position for folding if yours fold. The resistance to fold by hand is very stiff as you have to overcome the spring tension, even when folded by hand they do not fold as flat as you might think.
I purchased a 2006 Golf 5 GT Tdi last year it had £5000 worth of factory fitted options but did not have electrically folding door mirrors - hope this helps.
