18 TLX Folding Mirrors - Sounds

Hi Fellas, noticed recently when the door mirrors are automatically folding in or out, I hear this awkward winding/ almost crunchy sound. It happens on both doors.
Is it just me or you guys got the same sounds? wonder if silicon lube can do the trick. Let me know how your's are doing.

Same sound here, it basically sounds like two dry plastics catching and rubbing. I haven't put any lubricant in there, I'm afraid it'll gum up with dust. If you want to give it a go, I would use a powder lubricant such as graphite.

I dropped into the dealership the other day for a quick check. I was easily able to replicate the issue and they ordered me a whole new door mirror and housing to replace.

Iím not sure if we are talking about the same issue, but my driver side mirrors starting making a noise like crackle when closing the door.

I too took it to the dealer and they ordered a replacement mirror. Iím waiting for it to arrive.

Did this fix your rattle noise?

Strange issue to have.

I'm still waiting for the part to arrive too. I bet it's a similar noise you are getting too.
