Mine work, mostly, the nearside perfectly but the offside only partially folds in. If I give it a little help by pulling on it as I press the fold button but only very lightly it folds all the way in. When I then press it again they both open all the way.
If I don't give the helping hand as I push the button and push it home the rest of the way by hand after it has stopped, then when I switch to open them the driver's side opens half way. The nearside always works.
I'm suspecting some kind of clutch mechanism and maybe oil will free a partially seized mechanism up or make it worse by in effect oiling a clutch? Ideas anybody?
The mirrors on my previous GT were seized and although they were manual, mine would not budge an inch hence me thinking maybe the mechanism on this is just a little seized.
Priorities I find, are usually someone else's.
Statements above are all my own opinion and not fact.
