Driver mirror keeps moving after adjusting

My left driver side mirror keeps moving every time I drive the car after I adjust it. I have tried pressing the memory with a number to program the seat with the side mirror, but it is not working. I played around with the toggle since i do not have i drive and it is not working. However, my other key fob works perfectly just not this one. How can I get my side mirror to not move and have to adjust it every time I drive my car with this key fob?

Not sure how the 3 does it but are you using the correct key fob for the correct memory settings?

i.e. saving memory settings to #1 but using key fob #2 to open the car.. ?

I have this problem and the dealer told me it's a mirror motor problem. What's funny is that the position also changes when you lock and unlock doors lol

Mirror Issues

My mirror was possessed and needed a Catholic Priest to cast the demons out. Every time I would lock and unlock the car the Driver side mirror would start to move, Then the metal stops snapped and the mirror keeps going until the mirror faces forward (almost) I would have to manually push it back then I lost patience and disconnected the power to the mirror.

When I took it to the dealer they said I needed a new mirror housing. So naturally I bought one and now the mirror works fine, BUT it is not aligned. it is pointing too far out in its standard position. I am not sure what to do with it at this point.

Good luck, if anyone has feedback please let me know.

mine too

My passenger side mirror seemed to mysteriously move pointing to the ground whenever I unlocked the doors. It took me forever to figure this out. I noticed it one day while the car was running and I unlocked the doors via the dash button to let in a passenger. Took it to the dealer and they told me the "connection needed cleaning". Worked fine ever since!

I find it interesting how we all have the same issues, yet the dealerships tell us something different. Makes me wonder if they specify new parts, get them covered under warranty, and never install them. Because if they did install them, why are we continuously going back to the dealership for the same issue?

My grandpa said in the old days, they'd asked for the return of old parts as proof the work was actually done. But wouldn't you know car people still cheated by returning someone else's used parts?

I figured I'd bump this thread rather than post a new given it's the identical problem I am having. Has there been any closure on this? I am having this issue in my 2007 E90 335. I was always under the impression that it had something to do with the memory seat settings? It sounds here like a bad motor causes this? It confuses me that a bad motor would randomly adjust the mirror when I lock/unlock the car. Can anyone shed some light?

I took it to the dealer and they replace the mirror motor and it now works like a charm. i haven't had any problem with it. I thought it was the memory seating but it isn't. You just have to find a nice SA that is willing to replace it for you.

Thanks! You wouldn't happen to have a P/N would you? Is the motor in this diagram: http://www.realoem.com/bmw/showparts...48&hg=51&fg=07

Sorry to bring this back up but this is the method I used to fix my issue. I didn't have to buy a new motor.
