You owe it to yourself to be sure everything is nice and clean inside the mirror. Im pretty sure the motors will thank you with longer service, especially if you use the mirror function frequently.

pm me if you have any questions on a step by step

Hey buddy thanks for the tip. Yes it makes complete sense about the WD-40 I just did it as a fast fix but I know its not a long term solution. I will problably have to open the mirror to lub all the stuff inside right? You should post a DIY. Everyone here will be happy

I will follow your advise and check it out. Thanks again!!
