There may not be one, folding mirrors were an optional extra not fitted to all this model.

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.

I bought C200 Kcompressor 2003 model. Unfortunately I'm not able to fold driver and passenger wing mirror because of very stuff springs. Is it possible to close/fold wing mirror to avoid any damages while...


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.

Wing mirror folding on 2005 crv- does any one no how to solve it other than cutting the wires -which i might do!! DRIVING ME MAD EVRY TIME I SWITCH ENGINE ON!!


I've exactly the same issue. Apparently it's a common fault and often occurs if a wing mirror has been knocked.
No need to cut the wires they unplug easily, but you then also lose the mirror heaters.

How do i set my wing mirrors


if you wish to "set" the seat and outside mirror, then ignition key to ON, no seatbelt, transmission in "P", no breaks. press SET at the door panel, move the seat and/or mirror to your position, then press "1" or "2", according to the key color you use ( 1 with the black key, 2 with the gray key). If you wish to fold the mirror ( if equipped with), press the button in the center of the mirror mover switch to fold them, press again to unfold.

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.
