It's a shame you never recorded a video of your mirrors creaking, I would have liked to hear them. :roll:
I wish i had of done now.But they should not be making any creaking noise just a slight whining noise of the motors working.I could not believe how quiet the mirrors were on the courtesy car that i had for the day.
You can do a video of your new wing mirror so others can make a comparison ;)
(Keep the footage nice and close)

Thanks :P
I will do that tomorrow

Not sure the dimmed mirror indicator would be caused by spraying. When your mirror was making a noise, did you notice if the movement was slower than it is now ? It's possible that a poor earth connection was causing a voltage drop which might explain the dim indicator and a low voltage might cause the mirror to move in a series of small jerks causing vibration.

I don’t think it was any slower than it is now.But it did also jerk as you described.

Sorry Steve never tried; Rob’s the man on upload limitations but vernerbongo2’s advice would be the best alternative.

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.
