My door mirrors were set to fold automatically on locking. However early this morning with the temperature around 0C, the mirrors failed to extend when I unlocked the car - they were frozen up! It needed a couple of cans of warm water to get them working again, so from now on, during the winter months, I shall leave them extended overnight. Others be warned........

My passenger mirror did exactly the same last weekend. I was quite worried about it but figured there must be much colder climates than ours so there must be a failsafe built in to prevent the motor from damaging itself. For convenience though I decided to disable the folding for now also.

Weird that this issue comes up now, as S80 models from 8 years ago already had folding mirrors, surely by now they would have picked this up. Luckily I live in sunny SA.
