Think I saw Scarborough Bay on Calendar news tonight. North Yorks has had a fair amount of the "White Stuff" today.

You would think it was a scene from 'the day after tomorrow' Jack.

we only had around 2" but the whole town was at a stand still...took me an hour to drive the two miles home (in the works van) and that was using every rat-run i know.

back to normal today...around 8 minutes home through town

I had this problem with my car, I messed about with the mirror for ages and I never fixed the problem, until I changed the mirror. Even then it still fails to fold occasionally. I believe it's a common problem and may be some sort of canbus wiring issue and not the mirror at all.
