Default 2007 Tahoe folding mirror quit working

I always thought these things seems wimpy and now the drivers side one barely works. it only folds in maybe 1/2 way and is VERY slow. We only use it when going into and out of the garage so not all of the time. Hopefully our extended warranty will take care of it.

I don't have the power folding but do have to pull my drivers side mirror in when i pull into the garage, 1 or 2x a year with the mirror folded in I put a couple of spray squirts of lithium grease up into the pivot assembly and it keeps it smooth and easy to fold in... I don't know if the power folders work any differently but they could possibly be getting dry (lubrication wise) and are working against that...

ousig2408, are you referring to a third party warranty extension or to our GMPP?

CCS - I have a 3rd party extended B2B that specifically says all electronic items so they better not give me flack.
if there was 1 thing I would "downgrade" on the Tahoe - the power mirrors. Would be so much easier to manually pull it in. oh well

From GM's prospective they last just long enough...you get it paid off, get a few months of time to save some bank, and then its time to start the parts/repair payment plan....

knock on wood, I have been pretty lucky with my 07 with 54k on it... only thing I have replaced so far is drivers side seat back adj leaver...
I have had a battery and a couple other items done but were all under warranty..
