Can you move the mirrors by hand? Try to (gently!) push them back and forth.

If you can move them easily by hand, the gears inside the motor housing have slipped. You can "weld" them back together or buy new motors.

The manual often doesn't show the correct fuse locations. :- /

I have no idea where the fuse(s) are. :- /

If the mirrors move easily, the gears inside the motors are shot. From the design, I think they are designed to slip if the mirror is stuck, but over time part of it breaks.

There are a set of gears inside the motor (2 actually, one set for each direction) I took mine apart and melted the two pieces together with a soldering iron set to 550F. Careful, the fumes are NASTY.
