Squeaky mirror on fold in/out

Hey all

So when my mirrors fold in/out, especially during warm weather, the driver's side makes this awesome plastic on plastic kinda squeak.

I figure WD40, or even some dry graphite lube, but before I do so has anyone else seen this and has a recommended path before I experiment?

Thanks!

Yes. If you've let it get really bad you can remove the cover, using a couple of trim removal wedges, and spritz inside.

make sure to use a DRY lube with ptfe. wet sprays like wd-40 silicone tend to be sticky and attract dirt...
