Side Mirror Folding Motor Installation Help

Hello Guys!

I recently bought a new folding motor for one of my mirrors as it stopped working. The motor came with an entire used mirror assembly as they cannot be purchased separately. Upon disassembly from the used mirror, I accidentally took of the motor cover with the gears but forgot to mark where the seams align with the motor. As it turned out, this is a big deal as there is only one correct way to put it together and without the right markings the mirror position is completely off when assembling the mirror.

Would anybody know a solution to this, it's driving me crazy!?

If the above didn't make sense, I am referring to one of the last few steps of this DIY where it reads to use a paint market to mark the motor casing at all case transitions.
