Outside rear view mirrors turn inwards, requires regular adjustment

On my 2010 MDX, the outside rear view mirrors (both) turn inwards, and require me to adjust them to face outwards every 20-30 miles of driving. This also happens after I park and come back to the car. Dealer can not replicate the problem. Ideas? Thanks.

Do you mean that the mirrors do not turn in when the car is at the dealers. Did you leave it long enough for it to happen as you say normally does?

How long when sitting does it take for the mirrors to turn in?

? This is an interesting one. Waiting to see what's causing that.
You mean just the glass and not the entire mirror assembly, right?

Yes, just the glass mirrors, not the assembly.

I left it at the dealer for a day. I will park and come back in a few minutes and it has turned in, enough so that I have to adjust it. And also when I take a long drive, say from the Bay Area to Tahoe, which is about 200 miles, I will have to adjust a number of times along the way.

It may not be the mirrors, it may be you.

I find myself adjusting the mirrors on my vehicles just becuase as I sit I adjust my seating position. When I do this change the mirrors then need changing. I "tweek" them to fit my new position.

I keep mine adjusted so that in my normal position I do not see any of my own vehicle. This helps me eliminate the "bling spot."

I always adjust the mirrors daily. I reckon in the morning I'm taller than the end of the day!
On my long drives, I adjust the seating position with obvious consequences to.

Is your mirror adjust switch in the center?

Was there ever any solution to this problem?

Two days ago I started having a similar problem on my 2004.

The mirrors are turning inward when the car is not turned on.

After many times trying to duplicate the problem I found that the mirrors turned inward when I OPENED THE DOOR after the MDX had been parked for a few minutes. Both mirrors are turning, but the right more than the left. Position of the mirror selector does not matter.

I have to believe that it has something to do with the memory position module.

Any thoughts?

George

It may be you! Take notice of your body positioning in the morning and then again in the afternoon. In the afternoon your body is tired and you will slouch or lean to one side, while in the morning you will sit up straight.
