Is the epoxy going to hold? IMHO, I would just pay the $160.00 for a new actuator assembly and not have to worry about taking it apart again if the epoxy fails.

Going to epoxy then back in and see if that makes any difference.

At the least I was able to get them back down.



Hi!
Is your mirror work after you glue these pins back????? Thank for info.

It works again, sometimes perfect, sometimes it clicks a few times when its folding down. I still need to take it apart sometime and see if my glue held.

I drilled a hole where the pin stand and drilled through the hole to hold the pin. I installed a screw and screwed in the hole in motor. renember that you screwed just smooth surfaces. If you screwed to much you reaches these teeths. the motor worked a little better.Hope this help.

I appreciate your efforts but it's really tough to figure out what you actually did with the lack of description and blurry photos. It may make more sense to me once I take apart my mirror but that won't happen till it warms up. It's -24C right now and then add teh humidity and wind and it feels like -45C. brrrrrrrrrrrrr
