I have just purchased a second hand C3, y2010 and found out that wing mirror adjustment works in one direction only, for both left and right mirror - which led me to believe that there is a problem with the switch. I have extracted the switch assembly from the door handle and measured it with ohmmeter. The pin assignment is strange, but I found out that switch actually does make a contact when pressed on all four directions....
Did anybody have a similar problem?

The electric mirror motors are linked for left and right, so a poor connection on the switch plug/socket will affect both sides.

I would inspect the plug on the back of the switch for a poor connection.
