Red face clk430 Right side mirror problems

I have a 2000 clk430 --

The right side mirror tilts down so you can see the curb when parking.

When you go foward it is supposed to return to its nomal position.

But it starts to move and it doesn't make it all of the way.

It seems to only return approx 80%.

When I push the seat memory button it goes all of the way.

With the seat memory button it works fine.

Only have trouble when it returns automatically.

If you know a cure -- Please let me know.

this may be a two person job.....

- using touch/sight, try lightly touching the plastic housing to see if the mirror
is scraping the housing while attempting to mirror down/up. if so, perhaps the
clearance is too tight and housing needs to be readjusted or repositioned.

- the mirror servo motor is on the blink. remove the plastic housing and cycle
through the Reverse/Park-Drive to see if the flip up/down is any more reliable.
if so, then it seemingly points to the clearance theory above. if it still exhibits
this anomaly, then it points to the motor.

i've not had to....but wonder if the mirror servo mechanisms need lubricating?
i'll dig around to see if any TSBs were issued
