I was unable to find a thread on this i just did some tlc on the mirrors they were making creaking noises got that fixed but are the motor’s replaceable i have an 07 are the newer models using the same motor?
I dont know why i have to go into detail but my motors did creak you call yours anything you want. It shouldnt be necessary to go into minute detail to try to explain something the mirrors are controlled by motors in the mirror housing no cables.
It doesn't look like you can buy just the motor, at least from my searches. You have to replace the whole mirror assembly at nearly $150 to $200 a pop. You can replace the glass however. My mirror's plastic housing creaks when I manipulate it, but the motor itself is quiet...... for now knock on wood. It looks like the little motor is riveted together. You could try to remove the rivets and use some sort of silicone grease to fix the problem, but I don't know how you'd seal it back up and keep it in one piece.
Iwas changing the mirror bulbs yesterday. Adjustment motors being flakey. Sometimes they would engage and then stop working on one axis or the other. Troubleshot it to the switch. Adding it to the to-do list.
