    Is there any how-to lubricate the wing mirrors creaking when folding and unfolding?

    Thanks.

    Sorry to trouble you guys. I done it. It fairly simple, push it forward and you will see a spindle, drop some oil on it.

    When I folded the wing mirror, gosh what should I do, fairly complicated mechanism with loads of plastic covering. Should I dismantle the whole wing mirror just to oil it for maintenance? Surely this can't be right. Done it without damaging it.:p

    Spray it with teflon or silicon spray, but make a little enclosure with an old towel or something similar and try to keep the spray off the bodywork and certainly keep it off the windscreen.
