Inside the External Mirror Housing

Has anyone disassembled an external mirror? Does the roundish panel shown in the photo pry off? When shifting into Reverse the passenger mirror sometimes lowers to the position I set; other times it only goes down partway. I thought I would try some lubrication before attempting major surgery. How should I pry apart the housing -- or should I?

There’s a video on YouTube if you type in Maserati granturismo side mirror cap removal. If I remember correctly the mirror pulls out first and exposed clips to cap cover. Not sure what it exposes from there but you should get a much better look. I just had to replace my whole side carbon fiber mirror assembly and it was 1600$. That don’t sell just parts. Whole assembly’s only

I don't think it's the mirror. Mine often get into the wrong position using that feature. I just inch the drivers seat forward a touch and hit the memory button again and it all goes back to normal settings again.

This isn't the mirror at fault, it's just the seat memory system which is basically, not very good

If you want to access the two motors for mirror movement then you remove the glass and not the capping..The glass just pops off the mount, but you need to be careful...I personally hate reverse mirror dipping and shut it off on all my vehicles.. Jason
