X5 sideview mirrors

Just checking to see if anyone has had this particular issue with the mirrors on their X5.

The switch will move the left sideview up and down, but not back and fourth.  And then when you switch to the right sideview mirror via the control switch, it doesn't move at all.

The right mirror will tilt down when backing up if you have the switch in the correct position, but then it will stay in that tilted down position when you start moving forward.

Both mirrors fold in correctly.

So not sure if this is a mirror issue or a switch issue.

Let me know if you have any suggestions.

Welcome to the Forum

A diagnostic scan would help pinpoint where the problem is it could be the door switch or an issue with the FCM. Without testing and checking you can spend a lot of cash changing stuff unnecessarily. I would start with the simple things pop out the switch clean the connectors and pins with a good contact cleaner (not WD40) see if that improves things test the switch operation with a tester/multi meter. Pop the back off the mirrors and check/clean connections. Don't forget the earth connections

Hope this helps
