This has been kind of frustrating. <p>When i park my car at a sunny spot (latelly it has been really hot -> 40ºc ) and fold my mirrors, after a few ours when i pick it up and try to unfold the mirrors, my side works fine, the passenger one doesn't unfold, i have to do it manualy and only after a few minutes driving it starts working again.<p>This only happens when it's hot.<p>Any sugestions?

Re: Folding mirrors problem (mJrO)

Does it sound like it's binding? Hard to tell without seeing/hearing the problem but maybe it's due to the expanding parts in the heat of the sun that don't slide well. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/confused.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: Folding mirrors problem (mJrO)

I have the same problem, but not only when it's hot, and switching from the left hand side to the right. I've taken it to the dealer two times but they can't seem to fix it, 'cause the problem is still there. A possible explanation is that your mirrors slide in the safety mode (so they wouldn't break off when moved in the opposite direction) when somebody brushes against them. But I must say, the problem doesn't seem to occur more in the city than when parked at home... <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/confused.gif" BORDER="0">
