    So this morning, I noticed my driver's side power folding mirror a couple of times wasn't extending all the way out and I had to manually push it out. It happened a couple of times as I was running errands, but now seems to be ok. Not sure if this might be a software bug or a sign of a failing part? I am on the latest software 2018.32.2.3817fdd.

    Mine did that. A ranger replaced the mirror which fixed it.

    I really hope that isn’t my issue as my mirror is liquid wrapped with Autoflex and that means I’d need to get it done over...

    Mine started doing that, and they just took it apart and lubed it. Problem solved (for now?).

    He replaced the mirror and mechanism, my original car color painted, wrapped mirror cover remained. You'll be fine.

    I had mine replaced as well seems to be a common problem. Ranger came out and replaced in about an hour. Also not to worry if you have a wrap on it. They only replace the mechanism inside and put the original cover back on.

    Thanks guys. My initial concern was getting it re-wrapped which would be a huge pain. It only happened a couple of times today but if I keep seeing it happen, I will call my SC and have them send a ranger.

    The issue is still happening, so I made an appointment for a mobile ranger to come out and check it out, they are calling me back next week to schedule.
