Outer Rear view Mirrors

Post by [email protected] » Wed Mar 21, 2018 1:02 pm

I have a 1987 635, the electric mirrors have gotten very crunchy and sometimes will not move at all. I've taken the lens out but the motor is covered by a rubber boot. Can anyone tell me how to lubricate the motor?

Thanks, Doug
