1999 e320 passanger side view mirror going crazy

First started a month ago, while in gear and parking, the side view mirror on the passenger side starts moving all over the place. Even when the switch is thrown to the drivers side control. Now it is happening while driving. Anybody had this mirror gremlin?

I know it might sound crazy...but that mirror's operation is done thru 3 computers!

The switch assembly is part of a computer & that signal goes thru a gateway (EIS) and then to the door module in that door & then to the mirror motor. Even the mirror motor has feedback info for the door module.

I would start by disconnecting the window switch.
