I have the same issue reported in this thread where the drivers side mirror folds out past normal. I have performed the sync recommended on other sites, but it is still going past the normal position after following the procedures. I'm trying to avoid the stealership.
Drivers side mirror rotates too far. This happens after the car is turned off, when I return to the car at a later time.
Mirrors seem out of sync? looks like suicide doors and flap towards the front of car...ugh
