Has anyone lubricated S4 door mirrors? I just took apart and cleaned the switch and have that working properly, but the mirrors do not move smoothly. Any suggestions.

Check to make sure the mirror glass is not rubbing on the inside of the mirror housing. If the mirror glass has been previously removed, and was not aligned properly with the 2 sided tape, it will cause the glass to scrape the inside of the mirror housing; making the movement jumpy.

Clearance looks good. If I have time next weekend, (the grandchildren are coming for 3 weeks), I'll take the door panel off and see how things work in there and report my findings....Bob

I tried white lithium in a spray can and used one of those little red straws.
Of course I couldn't tell what I was what I was greasing back there but it helped some anyway.

Aldo: Did you spray the lithium grease behind the mirror or did you remove the door panel and spray it up into the stem that holds the mirror on the door?

Sprayed behind the mirrors from outside the car.
Don't think anything is accessable from inside the door panel accept for a pair of elec. connectors.
