    Escalade side view mirror....

    We'll I finally gave up on why the left mirror will not fold in all the way like the right mirror. The dealer said it just needs to be reset, he forced it closed then proceeded to open them, same result. He said he never say that before, nor has anyone complained. After reading it on one of these threads somewhere I became curious. I have seen this on a lot of trucks, chalk it up to the unknown why the left mirror looks like one of the Presidents ears when it is folded. No rhyme or reason. Manufacturing snafu.

    How can they let these things get into production. Someone has to sign off on quality control.

    Oh my gosh...the right side closes about 2-3 inches more than the left side.
    This is going to absolutely drive me nuts now. I'll add it to the list....

    We'll that mirror adjusts for reflection... Maybe it's the wires that stop it from going. All the way or it's that way to not break the wires.
