Hi all, I have a 9-3 2011 diesel estate and when I press the mirror retracting button when parked up the drivers side is fine but passenger-side doesn't retract. Any ideas on where or what the fault could be? Thanks

Disconnect the negative off the battery for 3-4 mins allowing the system to reset otherwise issue with the wiring or someone has replaced it with a non folding one..

Aerojon, I also have a niggle with mine, also an 11 model year estate. When I open or close the mirrors, you can sometimes hear the motors (or whatever they are hat move them) whirring away for maybe five to 10 seconds. Not always, just sometimes. Is that also a reset issue?

I've a very similar issue to you Christmas on my 2010 estate. When I retract or extend the mirrors I get a chirping/electrical noise for 5-10 seconds or so afterwards and sometimes a little further down the road for a second or 2. It sometimes does this even when I have left the mirrors open and have not pressed the button to operate them.

Have had the car into a Saab specialist a couple of times and they changed the door module on the drivers side but the problem still remains. The only thing I know is when the battery has been disconnected (I.e when serviced) the fault goes away for a few driving cycles but will return shortly after.

Anyone had this specific problem?
