    You are not having a lot of luck! Try BMW, you can often buy pins from them

    Excellent write up, just followed this to sort my wobbly drivers mirror, luckily the free version worked for me! Must have come loose through all the years of being folded away. Hopefully it will last for a while :)

    Thank you @MirrorJohn :bow2:

    Glad you got it sorted without spending a penny. Free fixes are the best ones, they just dont normally happen. Especially on an E46 M3!
