Re: Wing mirror adjustment

When we got our Mk2 Scenic, SWMBO (who is a short ar*e) couldn't get the mirrors far enough out for her driving position (closer to the windscreen than a headlight bulb to it's glass).
A gentle lever with summat soft behind the mirror glass, popped it off, an application of WD40, or similar to the gears / racks & running the motors fully left, right, up, down a few times whilst watching to see it hit the end stops cured the problem. Brushing the gears with an old toothbrush to remove cr*p will help too.
