One vehicles equipped with power folding mirrors, the mirror may fold out past the standard position. Our technicians tell us that if this occurs a special procedure must be followed to relearn the correct mirror home position.

    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.
