Default Panamera Folding Mirrors Squeak

Anyone have a problem with their folding mirrors squeaking when folding/unfolding? Someone else made a video about this:


If so any fix?

Fold the mirrors in. Blow out the area with compressed air.

Use a cloth for masking and spray some WD-40 or carbon dry lube spray in those areas. Don't get it on the car. Wipe away excess, and see if that helps for a while.

If that doesn't work, and it really drives you crazy, then maybe use some masking tape over the flat area when the mirrors are folded in, and see if there is some rubbing on the tape after you move the mirrors around a bit. If you do, use some very light sand paper where it rubs. If its internal, and part of the motor and gears, you're probably going to have to live with it or buy a whole new mirror assembly.

Thanks for the advice, I got some silicon grease which I will try on the overlapping edges. Just wondering if this is a known issue - I have a 2018.
