I was wondering if anyone else is having their driver side mirror not working properly. When I go to fold it in, the driver side mirror just clicks, like it is stuck. I will say sometimes it works fine, then other times it sticks and doesn't move at all. It just makes noise. Also I thought the mirrors could be folded independently, but seems like when I press the passenger side mirror to fold in, both mirrors will fold in. any thoughts? ???

The noise you hear is a misaligned gear/motor, inside the mirror housing! may just be a simple adjustment at dealer? Don't continue to use, even though it works sometimes, as you may be wearing down some gears?

Yes, both auto fold together. Sorry.

Do you only use the power function to fold or do you sometimes fold it in manually?

I have the Lux pkg. I've tried both power and manual. when trying manual for driver side, i don't force it as I don't want to damage further. passenger side folds rather easy with power and/or manual.
as time permits, i'll take to dealer for them to look at, hopefully it isn't anything to difficult to fix.

I always thought that folding power mirrors manually forces gears to mesh in an abnormal and strained way. I know they will do it in case of an errant pedestrian, but assumed you should always POWER fold them so gears/motors work properly.

Kinda like not blocking the power hatch upon closing. The safety disengages the hatch, but it doesn't sound like something you want to do every day?
