Folding mirror repair kits.....
The passenger side folding mirror has stopped working on my M5.
The motor worked fine but the mirror wouldn't lift and there was a nasty sound of gear teeth.
Now, after having the assembly apart 3 times already I have penultimately decided that the assembly is no longer saveable as the alloy dowls on the motor housing have both snapped off.
Anyway, upon further investigation it turns out there are 'complete' repair kits on eBay which have all the parts that I need, BUT the thing is, none of the kits mention the E39 as a fitment.......
The kits I've seen fit the X5, and there are some kits that fit a E46.
The parts in the photos look identical to the parts I require for my car.
I have messaged one company and they are of no help.........
Maybe you guys can help me out here, here's the eBay number for one of the kits - 131731576154
Looks the same as the parts for a E39 mirror assembly - correct?
