Outside mirrors not working.

The electric outside mirrors are not working on my BMW 325i. I have replaced the fuse and they still don't work. When I move the the positioning knob I can hear something "click" that sounds like its coming from under the hood.

Is this a good question?

The click you are hearing could be a bad relay, but it is hard to say. If you remove either the tweeter or the small plastic panel (depending on your car's options) at the front corner of the window glass on the door, you will see a three wire rectangular connector. If you have access to a multimeter, you could disconnect this connector and test the wires for voltage by connecting the test leads to the car-side of the connector and activating the mirror switch. If you have voltage, the motor(s) in your mirror are likely seized. If you do not have voltage, the relay in the circuit is probably damaged.

The e30 has a few problems with corroding (or better rotten) connectors.

here is a link to m42club.com

is think that everthing you need is in there - surely, there can be other problems too - but i would first check the connections and the switch
