Hi all,

The motor on the automatic wing mirror is broken.
I don't see any part numbers on realoem for just the motor. This means I have to buy either second hand or from ebay (not sure on quality).
A couple questions:

are these M3/M5 specific motors or do non-Ms contain the same motors/gears?

The aftermarket repair kits on ebay don't contain any of the electronics, just the gears and housings. Has anyone tried them? I have replaced the gears last year and they went bad again ( I presume the housing has worn out as well ):

ECS sells the parts, as a matter of fact...

ES# 84404 (left actuator)

ES# 84405 (right actuator)

Thank you, but I am looking for the auto folding motor for the whole side mirror, not just the glass. As can be seen in the ebay link

You’re kidding.... shit, sorry man!!

Lemme get back on with My guy there and see what he’s got. The fold in mirror actuator is a UK feature apparently, so there should be an OEM product.
