Hi Outback owners and enthusiastics.

I own 2011 Outback. I came across the noise from the left passanger mirror. Both mirrors work fine, just the left one doesn't fold anymore. I think it has to do something with folding motor. Does anyone know if it's fixable without taking it to Subaru service? I tried to google replacement which I could easily change but was unlucky to find the exact one I have on my car. Any advice would be much appreciated.

Hi Hanys. I replaced the housing on my 2011 for the same reason. Good news is it's an easy job, bad news is a new housing is about £350 from a dealer! That doesn't include glass, cover etc. The glass is fiddly but a flat screwdriver will remove it by prying from underneath, after you move the bottom out as far as it will go, then just unplug the heater. The motor is not available separately unfortunately. If you break the glass, that's another £85. Ask me how I know!
