Sideview Mirrors

I have a 2009 Limited, and both the exterior mirrors have "gone limp" meaning that the spring inside the folding mechanism seems to have snapped or come undone. Anyone else have this problem? If so, have you fixed it, and what is the remedy?

Had this problem on my 2010 Limited. The spring snaped due to salt corrosion (on mine there there is a little panel on the underside you can remove and was full of gunk).

Unfortunately my remedy was to pop up to the dealer and pickup a replacement assembly. If I recall you need to (carefully) take the "glamor cap/skull cap" off of your existing one and transfer to the new one. Could probably snag one at a salvage yard cheaper.

Was easy enough to replace (undo bolts from inside to remove housing, disconnect wiring harness and reverse process).
