    Which feature isn't working, the mirror glass 4 way movements, folding, heated etc, need more info.

    Check door rubber for broken wires.

    It's the mirror glass 4 way movement that's not working. Both doors not working.

    Does it have electric folding?

    Check door rubber 1st for any broken wires.

    Not sure if they are folding mirrors but they aren't folding at the moment. Had a quick look at the door rubber loom. How do you expose the cables easily

    Im in Lanarkshire. I had a look at the wires inside the rubbers. All of the wires looked in tact. The purple and white one in the passenger side was a little kinked.

    Maybe the switch has become faulty, it hasn't got wet at anytime has it?

    Its going to need diagnosing with vcds 1st to see if the switch movements are being seen, but one little thing, I wonder if the switch connector has popped out, door card of job.

    Does the switch illuminate at night like all the others, if not then it could be this.
