I wonder if anyone can help?

My problem is that the drivers side powered wingmirror seems to over rotate a further 90 degrees past the proper position upon folding out. I then have to manually pull it back into position.

Has anyone else had this problem?

Is the likely cause some kind of switch in the mirror housing?

How do you get into the mirror unit?
 
Can you post a pic of the wing mirror when its too far out?

Looks like its internal positioning pin is broken.

Thank you.

Is that a part I can buy and replace?

Any idea where there are some internal pics etc?
