Hi. Just bought a 2008 Astra. On first drive, went to adjust wing mirrors with the manual joystick and both sides don't work. Had a look for past threads but mainly for electric mirrors and no solution found for my problem Any idea what the problem could be and how to fix it? Thanks

Thanks for this. Is there any way to unseize them by injecting wd40 or oil? but how to I access the cables to do this? Thanks

You’ll need to remove the triangle trim they come out of to get to the cables

The triangular trim is held on with three clips, at least one usually breaks, but they are cheap enough on ebay.
Then the mirror is held on by screws through the door.
