Q: Side mirrors not moving

asked by on

The side mirrors won't move even though I can hear the motor working.

If your side rearview mirrors are not working but you can hear the motor moving, then they may have come loose, or are either broken from the backing plates. I would recommend having a professional technician, such as one from YourMechanic, thoroughly examine the mirror in question, to determine if it has come loose, or if it has broken off.
