Electric wing mirror, folds up slower on the driver side

Hi,

My wing mirror folds up noticeably slower on the driver side and my warranty is running out. Should i be concerned?

Yes, it is most probably about to fail.

Try to get it fixed under the warranty.

Had mine checked today. They showed me a bulletin board letter, so i guess the problem is well known.

Had to order the part from Honda so have to wait until it arrives. Covered under warranty.
