Power Folding Mirror Problem

I have a 2008 F250 with 24000 miles that the drivers side power folding mirror will not go back to out position and stay without flapping an inch or so after going 10 miles down the road. It folds in fine, but when you put it back out it will make a grinding sound and stay there for just a few miles but it then loosens up and will move an inch or so back and forth. Anybody else had this problem, and is there a fix other than replacing the whole assembly? Truck goes out of the factory 3/36 warranty here in another month.I'm thinking seriously about the Ford ESP PremiumCare.

The way you've described how your one mirror is operating is not normal, so being that you're still within the 3/36 warranty, can't you take the truck to a Ford dealer and have them fix the problem?

The other problem which can happen with the powerfold mirrors is that they can get out of sync, but that situation can presumably be corrected.

Powerfold mirrors out of synchronization:
This may occur if one of the mirrors has been bumped out of position, then the powerfold switch is used. To re-synch the mirros, fold them both in towards the cab until an audible popping is heard. Then press the powerfold switch to re-deploy the mirrors. Folding one mirror completely in, then fully out by habd will not unsynch the mirrors. Broadcast Message 7051.

Do you fold them both in manually without using the power switch to re-sync them or hold button folding them in until you hear the audible popping using the motor? Yes I can take it to the dealer but I don't trust the local dealer to even check the oil so I have to go 45 minutes away to get warranty stuff done.Just a PIA.

Yup just manually fold both mirrors in and then use the power button switch to redeploy the mirrors and they should sync back together. That's what i had to do when my old man was goofing around with my mirrors.

I have to reset them all the time when bumping trees,etc. Sometimes their stubborn and you have to do them a few times. One time I think I pulled it forward first because it wouldn't reset right.

Something may well be broken in the mirror and you should have it repaired.

You should absolutely be getting the Ford ESP PremiumCare extended warranty regardless of the mirror problem.
