Wonder if anyone has had this issue and possibly have a solution. My driver side power folding mirror had to be replaced because of motor issues. Shortly after that the passenger side mirror did the same thing and had to be replaced. I noticed after the driver side mirror was replaced that the 360 view was not aligned on the driver side. I asked the dealer to look at it when i brought it in to replace the passenger side mirror. They said it was working fine. Needless to say when I took the truck to the store and went to back into a spot I noticed the alignment was not fixed and now the passenger side mirror camera is out of alignment. When I purchased the truck new you could not see the seams in the stitching together of the images. So I am curious is anyone else has had this issue, is there a way to calibrate the cameras from the 12" screen like they do on large RVs, or has any dealer actually solved this without having to replace the whole mirror again? This may sound petty but this is driving me absolutely insane. I attached an image as well.

I have this same issue now on my passenger side camera. Just had both mirrors replaced due to clicking issue.
Did you find a solution?

My camera have been working ok, but I have noticed that when I power fold my mirror, they lightly tap on the window in the folded position. On my other vehicle, the mirrors do not touch the side window glass when power folded.

Is it normal for the mirrors to touch the side glass when folded?

The CVPM (the module that processes the images) needs to be recalibrated after a mirror swap. The dealer can do this, or AlfaOBD can do it, also.

Are you sure the mirrors touch the glass when folded? I thought so as well but upon further inspection there is a tiny gap betwwen mirror and glass, they dont touch but it sure seemed like they did.

+1 on this. I thought mine were touching the glass also, but they actually don't.

Perhaps petty, but this would kill me also...

I hope its an easy dealer fix for you.
