Fiesta Titanium 2009 Left Folding Mirror

7 posts in this topic

Hello,

My right had side (drivers) folding mirror works fine and folds when requested or when unlocked door.

The left one does not move at all. The mirror itself can be adjusted using the electric mirror button, but the wing mirror itself does not automatically fold. It doesn't make a noise, or attempt to move.

Haven't changed fuse as not sure which one it is, cant find fuse layout guide.

Attached picture of fuse panel.

Unless you think it's something else? You'll all be better than me. I have NO idea.

Thanks in advance.

It could be:

  • The mirror/motor
  • Issue with wiring somewhere
  • The relay (2 black boxes in bottom right of your fuse box above the pink 30 fuse. One is for right folding mirror and the other for left)

Will try the fuse first... Just need to find where to buy. New one first. Or swap them around as I know one works?

Thanks

Just swappped them round. The relays are fine. Still no movement from the left hand side.

What's the easiest, most inexpensive way of fitting a new motor. Ford are extortionate!

If it's wiring , then I have no idea how to check something like that. The mirror still moves so I think the wiring is fine, just motor that folds may be broken.

To replace the mirror (get one on eBay for £50/60 - make sure it has 8 wires [not 6] so it is the powerfold version) or check the wiring you'd need to take the door panel off. Instructions in my vid below. (By check the wires I mean undo the plug inside the door and use a multimeter to check current when mirror is supposed to be folding)

So before I buy new one, I should follow your vid, take the door panel off and double check that where the car connects to the mirror is actually receiving a current, as this could be the fault and not the mirror itself. If it's got a good current. Then it's the mirror and buy a new one?

Did have a look, does anywhere sell just a new motor for the mirror? Instead of the whole unit?

That's what I would do yes, and I'm not aware of the motor being available separately.
