My friend reachs out to my passenger folded mirror and unfolded with his hand WTF!!!

LOL is funny now but man, as we were getting into my car Sunday I saw my friend trying to unfold my mirror as I heard a cracking sound and I was noooooo... they unfold my themselves but was too late.. Surprisingly, after a weird noise the mirror was backed into place and all is working fine..... I seriously thought my mirror was done...

I am glad these mirrors were tested agaist this dumbass tests....

Anyone else experienced this?

The sound was probably gears grinding; I wouldn't try it again...My 5 year old son did a similar test on the seat belt butler. I was getting gas and he was playing with it, then he pulled it out all the way. I thought it was toast since it didn't retract anymore. But then I pushed it back hard enough to get it to catch. After some grinding noises, it's working again.

+1 it isn't an issue, designed to be manually folded and unfolded even with electric control.

You can do it as often as you like. I fold mine by hand every time I wash my car, first down to drain, then up to drain in the other direction and no problems at all even after years of folding them up and down by hand. They are designed to work that way.

They are designed to move when bumped. Why would they have manual mirrors that move when bumped so they don't break and electric not and break when bumped?
