Exterior rear view mirror not tilting correctly when reversing

Hi,

I noticed recently that when reversing, the mirror on my side, which was configured to tilt down a bit, will move but incorrectly (to the right).
I tried to correct and save but this repeats.
It's indeed an older lady we drive.

Has anyone else experienced this and maybe fixed this too ? Maybe an easy DIY job? Thanks for the feedback !

Did you try adjusting the position while in reverse?

Also for the record, it’s called a side view mirror. :)
Yes, did that indeed, but fails still. The funny thing is that it does not fail each time.

Thanks for correcting me, I could not find the right wording :)

Is there any other issues you are having with the mirror positions? If not, maybe try making a new profile and see if the problem follows to the new profile. If it doesn't, the profile you normally use may have corrupted.
