If you know how I can test the motor (wires to shift console are cut), I can figure out if it works and hook you up If interested, shoot me a DM
Hey there,

Looking at the schematic...

Grey/2 is Common to both motors,
White/3 is Up/Down
Black/5 is Left/Right motor.

The short version.... They spring to life, you should be good.

I can pay via Paypal and it would need to be shipped to Hutto TX 78634. Thank you!
Just went out and tested mine - I think the motor is in good shape, but could use some help (I'm new to testing electrical in cars). Worth noting that the spring that makes the mirror "snap" when mounted is either broken or unattached. I bet it would be easy to swap the parts though

When I cut the wiring harness, there are only four wires (didn't match what you shared, @MBL87560SEC - but thanks for checking. This is a 1984 euro, not sure if that matters):
- white
- green
- black
- brown

Usually, brown is ground (I think?). I got left to right working just fine by connecting green and white to a car battery I have. Video showing that left to right works just fine (might require QuickTime)
https://media.clifton.io/bw/HardwayM...left-right.m4v

Only one other combination did anything- and that was brown and black. That makes a click sound- it's possible dirt or something else is jamming up and down. I can manually move the mirror up and down though, so that's weird. Here's a video of that:

If you're interested @HardwayMB , it's yours for $30 shipped (I can drop it into a flat rate box and ship it tomorrow- shoot me a DM)

(if anyone has tips on how I can re-test up and down, let me know and I'll try that again)

I can help @bsclifton I did some trouble shooting and have provided the diagram below. That way you don't have to worry about getting to the wire colors. I just watched your videos. Looks like the Up/Down motor is frozen but the Left/Right motors is functioning perfectly. I did several rounds of contact cleaner hoping my motors would free up. I was able to move the motor in a downward motion with more than average force but when I went to pull up on the gimble the teeth on the gimble gear track start breaking off. GRRRR!

Hardway, you need to get all the way down to the motors so you can turn the shafts themselves. Shoot contact cleaner into the motor and on the shaft at both ends. After a day or so, start to rotate the shafts directly, not via the gears, slightly back and forth, then spray in more cleaner.

It's a bit of a chore to get the unit dismantled to this point but like I said, I've freed up four motors in this way. It's certainly easier to find a good mirror but this can work as a last resort.

I was able to get the gimble off the mirror chassis but did not feel confident going further. If I can get another mirror that works I will use my original mirror as an educational opportunity.

Since the L/R function works I will give you the $30 for it. I believe the motors and gimble should be the same. The 5-pin connector is for the heated mirro option. I may also pick up another mirror for parts and maybe between 3 I can get one to work.
