    Hey all, I drive a 2015 328i xDrive. Today I was replacing the mirror covers - drivers side was fine. Popped out the mirror, replaced the cover, popped back in without issue. Wasn’t so lucky with the passenger side. I went to pop it out and the mirror cracked. No other part of the actual housing...

    Hey there, I'm replacing the driver's side glass on the side mirror and my replacement has different connectors than the factory. 2012 F30 328i xDrive sedan I'm sure I can make it work if I just solder on my own connectors but I'm not sure what's what. My guess is one supplies 12V for the...

    Don't know if anything like this has been posted before. I tried a number of key words, but nothing came up. No, I'm not talking about the mirror or its housing, but the mirror's position and the resulting image. The driver's side mirror on my 2004 330ci doesn't hold its preferred position. I...

    Just bought this 135i M from a dealer in Texas and discovered the driver side mirror is damaged, which he hadn't divulged to me. How hard is it to replace the drivers side view mirror black "shadow line" plastic part that fits inside the mirror housing cup and holds the mirror and motor? See...

    My car was vandalized and the passenger side mirror was broken off. Can someone help me identify the part number for the metal mount? I don't need to whole mirror cover, just the thing that holds it onto the door. I highlighted it in yellow in the diagram, pics attached. Any leads on where to...

    Hello, I own a 2006 BMW 530i, E60. I noticed today that the underside of my driver side mirror (the arm), has a cover(?) piece missing, that normally protects the inside wiring from the elements. Anyone know how I can fix this? Picture attached. Much thanks
  9. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    I have searched this forum for my particular problem and can't find a side mirror issue like mine with any comments to resolve it. I have a 2007 335 e93 in great shape and well cared for over the years. Just recently I have noticed that the driver side (LH) mirror shifts out of position from...

    I've got a problem with my 2005 E83 3.0. a few days ago the driver side power mirror (non folding) began moving all the way to one side as soon as the memory triggered it, and the motor keeps running, even with the key off. It doesn't respond to the controls. I can stop it by pulling fuse 57...

    Anyone know where to buy auto dimming side mirror glass? I can find lots of heated but no aftermarket auto dim :)
  12. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    I want to replace my standard heated side mirrors with the euro "aspherical" winged heated ones so I can reduce the blind spots. I found several aftermarket ones on ebay that seemed good quality. Almost all come with blue tinting to reduce glare andthat seems to have been standard on euro...

    Hello all, somehow I've managed to crack a piece of my side mirror. The dealer wants an extortionate amount for the the casing and motor and according to them they may need to change the glass if it cracks. Anyway what I've been looking at is getting a second hand one to replace but I can't...
  14. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    Hi! I've been trying to find instructional videos on youtube on how to replace my broken side mirror cover and mount ring (parts 3 and 4 of the attached diagram). Has anyone done it? Is it a doable job for someone without pro skills and/or tools? Any info will be appreciated!!
  15. E89 Z4 (2009 - current)
    Hello everyone, this is my first post. A few weeks ago I had a minor accident because of a oil patch, and I hit my passenger side mirror against a pole. :cry: Scratches have been fixed, but I am still waiting for the replacement mirror glass to arrive from the UK (I am in Australia). I opted...

    I have 2006 BMW X5 4.4L. I bought it from someone couple of weeks ago.. The person who sold it did not tell me and I failed to notice as well.. when I press the button that is supposed to fold the side mirrors, it makes clicking noise on both mirrors but they do not fold.. the problem is that...

    I have a '96 318i and I'm trying to swap out the factory power side view mirrors with aftermarket power mirrors w/ LED blinkers. My problem is the factory plug has 4 wires (Brown, Blue with white, Blue with black, and Black with white). The new mirrors only have 3 wires: White, Green, and Yellow...

    I drive a 2006 325i, and when I press the button to electronically fold my mirrors, they don't stop folding. They keep trying to fold until they hit the side of the car. When I press to button to fold them back into place, they keep folding outwards.
  19. X3 E83 (2004 - 2010)
    I have the apparently common problem related to the passenger's side mirror acting up, i.e. not tilting anymore when in reverse etc... I followed pretty much all the suggestions I could on this forum, including disconnecting the battery. Once I reconnected it though, the power windows stopped...

    Dear All, I have just had my car back from an Indy after having all the software updated in an attempt to fix the ELV Steering lock error. The car is a 55 Plate 530 D M Sport and when I got back in the car I noticed both Wing Mirrors had a yellow band across the top and a blue band across the...
