I seem to have fixed it by using sonax silicone spray, haven't had any problems with either mirror since applying that.
To those of you using wd40 - don't! - you risk making it worse, as it could dissolve whatever gearing oil is used in the internal mechanics. Wd40 is best as a disolver and not as a lubricant.
Where abouts on the mirror unit did you apply the Sonax spray havsgaard ? Was it over the top of the mirror glass, or did you spray into the fine gap between the base and the rotating body of the unit ?
Sorry about the late response, not been very active on forums the past weeks.

I sprayed it in between base and unit while locking/unlocking a few times. However, it has started to creak again, so I will probably have to give it another round. I can live with applying it a few times each year.
Keep a eye on your indicator lights on your mirror if you spray inside.The brightness had faded on mine , it may of been because i had sprayed mine too.

I had a clunking drivers mirror had it replaced under warranty at 1st service. No issues now.

I had a 2nd service at Listers on Thursday and had a phone call saying that they had noticed a noisy mirror motor and would replace it under warranty. I hadn't seen it as a problem but they insisted on its replacement as a failure would leave you with an illegal car, apparently!

Very good, provided they do the job well and don't cause any other issues. I'm surprised they even checked, so perhaps it is on a list of frequent faults they have to check for.
