How to fix Mirror misalignment

So I had just picked up my new to me e92 and after a few days noticed that the mirrors did not align properly. Being anal about stuff like this, it bugged the hell out of me. I posted the question in the General forum and Malek came to the rescue. There seemed to be a ton of people who had this same issue, so I figured I would put this out in the DIY so others might stumble across it.

  • Push mirror folding button on drivers door.
  • Mirror will fold all the way inward, bind and then "pop".
  • Press mirror button once more to unfold mirror.
  • Mirror should be realigned.

Go through the same steps but when complete the mirror will lug back to find it's correct spot. Pull again on the mirror (it will not want to move so you need to force it somewhat) towards the window and then press the window button again. It will click and pop back in to position.

Mine did this when I reset and I thought I broke the damn thing. By pulling back towards the window and pressing the button, it chugged its way back.

Unfortunately didn't work on mine. Both are misaligned and tried pushing them forward as well as back.

Man, that grind and pop are scary, but it worked on my driver side. My passenger side is still slightly off. Might have improved by a mm or two though. Thanks for the info.
