ML Mirror not folding

    Hi - the mirror on my ML (2001) only folds (electric) 10% before stopping. The setup is ok as the other mirror continues to fold. I am guessing that this is due to it being pushed a little the other way by somebody in the supermarket car park...
    I have removed the mirror assembly fom the car but I can't go any further.
    Is this unit something I can dismantle and get working again?
    Thanks
    Ian

    The mirror may have slipped on the folding mechanism. sometimes whilst holding the switch a little manual help to fold the mirror will rectify the situation....
