Need to adjust side mirror fold position on an E53

Hello!

Does anyone know how to adjust the driver's side mirror to fold more when folded? I just replaced the driver's side mirror assembly (brand new) that is equipt with the folding feature. This is on a 2003 E53 with sport and premium package. All when well in the installation and tested all buttons as instructed by TIS. However, I noticed that the passenger side mirror folds more than the new one I just installed. I looked at gap between the mirror and the window and it looks like the new one have more clearance to fold.

Any suggestions, I greatly appreciate it.

This link worked great for me. Suddenly the other day the mirrors would not stay folded. I popped the drivers side cover off and found that the metal lever on the micro switch had fallen off. I snapped it back on and the mirrors are working normally again. Love these forums!
