Smile HELP WITH 2006 X5 4.4i MIRROR ISSUE

Hi! Newbie here. I recently bought a 2006 X5
4.4i and since I got the car the switch to the side mirrors just opens them
It doesn't close the mirrors. I have to
do that manually. If I press the button while they're open
they close and open right back. I would really appreciate some help and suggestions or is the vehicle like that.

This is a very comon problem. Inside the mirror there is a little micro switch. when you hit the button to close the mirror the motor engages until the micro switch is made. If the micro switch is broken then the mirror will close and then open again.

Do some research on this forum. There are write ups for replacing the micro switch.

Thanks for the replies. I have had no choice but to close them manually. Living in NYC doesn't give you another option. people will
drive off with your mirror. I'll check today for the switch and threads. ***55357;***56397;
