Evo X power folding mirror problem

Hi everyone,

I bought my Evo X the other day & it has power folding mirrors. When I fold my mirrors in they both close in, then when I push the button to fold them back out the drivers side comes out fine but the passengers only goes half way then stops to which I have to cold it out myself carefully.

Has anyone had this problem at all & know how to fix it? Also they always go in & out when I lock it, can I turn that off so they dont do that as i am always having do fold it back out.


Thanks in advance

I had the same issue with my X, the motors in them are poop.
From memory you can disable the automatic fold in, but if you click the lock button twice or hold it when locking (can’t remember which) they’ll still fold in even when auto is turned off. I ended up taking mine apart and unplugging the fold in motor but leaving the mirror tilt motor operating.

I recall having a similar issue on one of my Xs, took it apart, but didn't manage to fix it.

Same, it is a motor issue, they fail, and i did a lot of searching for replacements with no success. you'll fine newer replacement mirrors travel slower, so if you buy a new replacement, dont be surprised if it travels at a different speed from the original

This might sounds obvious, and I'm sure you've already done this, but when I had that problem I just squirted a load of WD40 into the mirror hinge and that fixed it.

I had the same problem I took the mirror apart cleaned and used white Grease. What I found the problem is water from jet washing just drys out the motors and brackets hope this helps
