Man, if it weren't for bad luck, I'd have no luck at all!
I was pumped about doing this repair. Got the mirror, printed out the
instructions and was ready to go this morning.
Removed the actuator motor and looked into the hole only to discover that
the hole was still intact. I put everything back together and slowly turned
the nobwhile listening to the motor. I could hear the motor turning just
fine from the cold position gradually to warm, then bog down then stop when
the temp knob was at about the 10:00 position. It sounds like there's
something causing the door to bind.
What's this you say about the disply going dead? This has happened to me a
couple of times now but comes back to life. Sounds like another google is
