Default Drivers side mirror not fully opening

Im telling you now.. not having great luck with my new car, fault after fault.. first boot breaks then door barrel pops out and now my side mirror is faulty!

Heres my problem:
The odd day my drivers side mirror (When opening the car) wont fully extend, i have to close the car again and re open (as in lock and unlock with keyfob) and that some times works and bayum it fully goes into position. But today it seems to get worse! I did the old trick i made up lock unlock but it doesnt extend (my side mirror)
I got it in the end but it will soon fail im guessing and i want it fixed! Any idea on what i need to do?
Is it the motor going? ( I hope cause that seems easy to fix!) or what is it?
If its the motor, how do i tear this apart to insert new one?
Thanks!

What have you tried so far?, it could just need knocking back so you can get underneath it and clean and lubricate it.
Don't always assume the worst, and try simple things before replacing parts

They get clogged with dust. Lubricate the rubbing surfaces with GT85 spray and work them back and forth.

I sprayed a lot already but it sounds like the motor is dying :L

WD40 is not suitable. It dissolves the lubricant. Use GT85, which is a silicone lubricant. Spray between the fixed part and the moving part.
