Driver's mirror doesn't always fold in completely

Hi all,

When I press the button to fold in the wing-mirrors on my 2006 159, the drivers one doesn't always fold in all the way and sometimes has a problem folding out again. Am sure this is nothing serious as they don't get much use which suggest the problem of lubrication.

Any tips on where to squirt the WD40!?

Not a major prob but can be annoying...

Same problem here so I'll keep an eye on the thread. both sides for me. Again, possibly as I rarely use it.

Sprayed the pivot points between fixed bit on the door and the mirror with lots of wd 40. Cured my sticky mirrors. Oh and use plenty of rags/kitchen roll. It gets a bit messy.
