Side Power Mirror Issue

I have a 1987 JDM RHD VR4. I replaced the power mirror switch as the one I had was bad and nothing worked. Now both mirrors adjust but only the left one folds in. The right one makes motor noise but doesn't budge unless I fold it manually and then I hear the motor stop whirring. Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Stripped or broken gear in the mirror

Ive never taken one of those apart. Is that repairable or do I have to replace the whole thing?

Couldn't be sure on that one. Since they were never available in the US, sourcing one may be pricey for replacement. Only way wo be sure would be to open it up.

Here's the takeapart of the mirror.

This is from the JDM Technical manual, it was never supposed to be a serviceable item, but the reason I love these cars is everything is held together with proper screws so you can rebuild it:

I've posted the whole section on the mirror construction below so you can go over it all (the folding mechanism and the adjust mechanism)






To get into the mirror aim it all the way up then pop the bottom of the glass outwards from the housing and up.
The glass will hinge along the top line of the mirror and unhook. (This doesn't work for heated mirrors, which we got in europe.) You can then access all the screws and go from there.

Hope this helps.

P.S. check out the link in my signature to my tech archive post, you'll also find the wiring diagrams and connector locations for the folding mirrors too.

Provided with the detailed info, you could always transplant the guts from the new mirror into your old housing and not have to paint if it doesn't match.
