Hi I have a...

Hi I have a ML280, the electric side mirror isn't moving

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Mercedes?

2008 ml280

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your vehicle yourself? What have you tried so far?

I'm going to try and fix it myself, so I've taken the mirror glass out to see if the wires are still connected. that looks ok

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked all the fuses? Do you have a wiring diagram?

I haven't checked the fuses yet...was just looking online to see where the fuses are

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

I'm having problems with both mirrors
