    So the wife bashed the nearside wing mirror while driving yesterday and the indicator lense has a slight crack but still in one piece. She said that the mirror had folding in slightly becuase of the impact but still folding in and out ok.

    So went to have a look this morning and it seems that the mirror when fully extended is sitting in the right position but when folding in it stops folding a lot sooner that the off side one and certainly does not fold all the way. I tried to give it a firm push to try and fold it all the way (but not too hard) to try and get it into place but it didnt really budge.

    What can i do to try and realign it while in the folded position?

    Try to manually fold the mirror then open it again, when you open it, the mirror should click into place. You may need to lift the mirror a little when pushing it to close.

    Yes took some fiddling around and at one point stopped working altogether but sorted itself out. Once folding its not as locked as the otherside and there is considerable movement if manually handled.
    Thanks
