We purchased a used Eclipse Cross (ex demonstration) in February however we are currently having an issue with the Driver side car mirror. After parking normally I noticed that initially both car side mirrors were not moving back in position fully. I therefore had to manually put them back in position for safety. However whilst the passenger side mirror has returned to normal the driver side mirror does not retract. Has anyone else experienced a similar issue? As the Mitsubishi dealer are trying to suggest that this was caused by external damage and not an electrical fault. I’ve also been informed that Mitsubishi also deny any issues of this kind with this vehicle.

Hi Pmb,
On the very odd occasion my mirrors have remained in the closed/parking position, but to date have always opened properly by turning the ignition off and back on again any time this has happened. It has only happened once or twice at the most in the 12months I have owned the car. I put it down to a minor glitch in the system. Your dealer does sound a bit unhelpful, and too quick to pass on the blame without a proper examination of the car.. Dump them if possible and seek out a better dealer/agent for Mitsubishi, as they are out there.
Where in the UK are you, as I'm sure there are more helpful ones available to you.
This should not be necessary, but if you have a WD40 spray can, try spraying some of this lubricant around and into the swivel area, which could well be slightly seized, and by doing this could cure the problem.
Oh, and bye the way, a very warm welcome to the Forum and hope you enjoy and find it interesting and helpful.

I've worried about this since purchase. But let them remain set yo fold in/out. I haven't had any problems so far. Can you hear anything moving when you press the fold button on the door? That would help isolate the problem. I would go into settings and change the setting so they stop retracting every time and just stay open while you fight with the dealer over it.
