7 Series - E65 / E66 (2002 - 2008)
Discussion of BMW's 4th generation E65/E66 7 Series flagship. The E65 generated much controversy, due to its radical styling and iDrive user difficulties. Nonetheless, the E65 broke records to become the best-selling 7-series iteration ever, especially after its 2005 facelift.

Driver side mirror

I have noticed that the past couple of times I have used the car the drivers side mirror will not shift from its park position. The motor runs but the mirror doesn't move. If I add some muscle to the action the mirror will flip out to its driving position, the mirror will then park normally when selected to do so. Can this mirror need lubricating? I hate to do this without some reassurance as oil or grease will only attract grit etc, I was wondering whether graphite powder might be used or does someone have any suggestions? Merry Christmas to you all may 2013 be filled with trouble free motoring for us all.

My apologises for incorrectly posting original.
