there are no cables, they are screw style rods that run into the motors. odds are one of the pivot points is bound up if it wont move at all, and if it only goes one direction than maybe the rod to the motor that controlls the way it will go is broken. you can VERY carefully pry the glass out of the mirror, and access everything from there.

and your sure the motors are turning??? if they are, the screw type rods that connect them to the mirror must have a problem....either way, the easiest access is to CAREFULLY pry the mirror glass itself off..
