    Mirror on driver's side folds all the way out when car is unlocked or started. Dealer wants $1000 to fix. Mechanic says he can disconnect motor but then adjustment will have to be by hand. Does anyone know this relearning procedure? Do I need to send my Bimmer back to school or something?

    I have the same problem, but they will not re-program the mirror; they want me to buy a new $500 servo.

    Driver side mirror unfolds all the way pass normal position on its own. Obviously poor quality materials and engineering.
