Citroen Relay N/S mirror

Post by Benita »

The nearside mirror on my 2010 Citroen Relay is almost impossible to fold in, it is extremely stiff.
I can not see any way of access to lubricate the pivots.
Can anyone help?
Thank you
Benita

Hi Hell Razor

With no hints forthcoming I decided to drill a 3mm hole in the casing above the pivots.
I then flooded the space with light machine oil and let it soak.
Wrapped dusters around the arms to catch surplus.
I think I have caught all the surplus oil and the mirror is quite free.
Plugged the hole with a bit of black mastic.
Looks Ok
Thanks for your interest.
