After flushing my brake system, I mentioned the side mirrors were not working. I was quoted $250 for the switch so, I passed. Followed your instructions in the thread and after a $6.00 can of electronic contact cleaner it's working again! Thank you

Well, I pulled the switch out, disassembled it, cleaned the contacts and reinstalled it.... No change. So, it may very well be the mirror after all. Right side works fine, but the left side will only adjust in and out, not up and down.

Bummer

Thanks for the follow-up......not sure if I will do it, as long as the memory settings are working. Not really sure why only the driver's side for me would tilt down and not pass. side....but switch definitely doesn't always work....

Just did mine as left side mirror decided to stop adjusting after some hot weather - worked like a charm Thanks

Why on earth did they put that grease in there in the first place?

I got the panel off and the two screws off, but couldn't get the black cover to come off. Any tips on getting that cover off? Thanks?
