Retractable Mirror Issue

2006 330i:

Driver's side mirror- the issue - intermittant - is:

1. When retracting, the motor keeps running after fully retracted for a few seconds - then there is a "pop" sound and the mirror moves slightly.

2. When I push the button to unretract, mirror does not stop where it should perpendicular to car but keeps going all the way - swings 180 degrees so the mirror is flush but to the front.

Searching this forum, I found many possible solutions. The one that works for me is:

1. Manually pull the mirror from the incorrect full forward position all the way in.
2. Push the button to retract. (Passenger mirror then retracts correctly. Driver mirror is already retracted but "snaps" back into place).
3. Push button to unretract and all is then fine.

This occurs intermittently. What I'd like to know is what is:

- What is causing this?
- Can it be fixed permanently?

Any ideas?
