You can open it by hand, have you tried that?

it is very rigid and I'm concerned I might break something

It's made to move manually, though you'll feel some resistance, it should not hurt it to open it manually.

OK will try that can you tell me how to repair it ??

There isn't any repair for the mirror itself, if it has failed internally. There are no serviceable parts inside, and the mirror must be replaced as an assembly. The first step, though, would be to verify that you are getting signal to the mirror for it to fold/unfold, I can give you a schematic for that if you'd like to test that before replacing the mirror.
