Hi and welcome to this series where I blog one post for every issue I have had and how it was resolved
This time it is the right side mirror. They did replace the mirror motor (or so they said) but the problem is still persistent. The service technician said he will try to fix it next time he comes.
The problem is tricky to prove since every other time I get into the car my right mirror does not fold out entirely, sometimes it looks folded out since I am reversing out but once I start driving I notice that the mirror is not folded out. I then have to pull over and open/close the mirrors manually since it is not possible to close the mirrors during drive.
It is really uncomfortable to not have the right mirror especially when I need to pull over as I can not see properly the cars on my right side. Se a video below the images.
Do you think I am overreacting? Let me know in the comment field below.

Hi Howie! I am experiencing the same issue with my Model X’s side mirror (passenger side). Did you ever get it resolved with Tesla? Do you know what ended up being the issue? Did it require a replacement?

Hi Jerry, they ended up replacing both mirror motors on the third service. It seems like they did nothing the first two times I had the car in for that issue.
Let me know if you need a copy of the work order to provide Tesla.
