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 has a mind of its own

Hi everyone,
Just about every day I get in my car and the driver side mirror has moved, the actual mirror, not the housing. Sometimes it moves while I'm driving. I store it in memory and when I come back the next day it has moved and when I hold the memory button to bring it back, it never goes back to the stored position. Does anyone know what the problem could be? Bad wiring, module, the mirror itself or is there some kind of reset I can do? Any thoughts? Thanks.

When you type in the search function nothing comes up. I don't know of anyone else having that problem.

Could be a bad switch. Try moving selector to passenger side after you set the drivers to see if the problem moves to the passenger side.
