May not be relevant after all this time, but there was a TSB/Service Action about juddering mirrors I think it involved fitting a extra washer or something like that can't really remember exactly, will see if I can find a copy, may help.

Try this one.

WD40 is not a lubricant it is a WATER DISPERSANT, hence its name WD. It will work for a while but over time it will gum up the works by attracting cr@p to stick to it. Use a spray silicon grease or at least a spray grease.

That said if they are sticking or juddering when moving then, standing alongside the door facing forward grab the mirror body and push towards the front. The mirror will move and go almost flush with the car. This distributes the lubricant and is an accepted procedure for this problem.

Hope it sorts it.

Phil
