Should I us spray-on penetrating oil on the side views? There's alot of water that gets in there after washing.
Thanks.

I've never seen any that I thought need lubricating, but.....if it's the manual cable kind, I'd spray some teflon based lubrican up into the cable. Good luck.

Once a long time ago I lubricated a set of mirrors on a car I owned. They kept falling straight down at the slighest bump. Took forever for them to get enough friction back to stay adjusted. I would recommend doing what Phil suggested. Just lube the cable first and see if that helps.
