Default weird problem

When I went to put my driver window back on track a while back I had a problem gettin the plug to the power mirrors to come off the switch and all the wires came out of the plug. I was wondering if anyone can direct me to a wiring diagram for the power mirror switch, I've looked all over our forums and even googled the hell out of it but I can't seem to find a diagram showing what wire goes where in the plug. Please help I haven't been able to adjust my mirrors sense that happened.

Here's some old photos from my M3 mirrors DIY, perhaps they'll help:

otherwise, you should be able to look at your opposite mirror to see how it's wired

Thanks but it's not the mirrors, its the interior mirror switch, the mirror adjust controls, or whatever the 4 way joystick kinda switch that I'm having problems with. All the connectors that are supposed to be housed in a solid plug came out and I don't know what wire goes where in the plug. I will try and get a picture of what I'm talkin about to give more clarity on my problem.

No worries.

Chapter 12-36 in the Haynes manual has the electrical schematic/pin-out for '95 and earlier typical e36 power mirror switch. 12-47 for '96 and later typical e36 power mirror switch. But it doesn't specify for the 318ti.


The Bentley manual adresses the 318ti specifically. ELE-242 in the Bentley manual has the schematic and pin-out for the 318ti power mirror switch.

Sometimes the internet just doesn't have it and you gotta refer to the book
