Has anyone had their wing mirror fail to retract? All doors are working, car drives, turns on and off fine.

Will forcing them out cause permanent damage?
There was a known driver's door wiring loom fault with 2019/early 2020- may possibly be that.

As far as damage from moving the mirrors? I can't see why it would cause any problems: they are designed to be bumped by passing pedestrians etc.

Can you make them fold in and out by pressing the mirror adjuster? It pushed in like a button to retract/fold out the mirrors when the car is on/stationary. If that works I'd check in the menus, you've probably turned the feature off.

Thanks guys the issue was the mirrors were in the closed position, how they are when the car is locked... I was afraid to force them back incase it damaged the motor (whatever it is) that tucks in and pushes the mirrors back out.

I was at a charging station with a long drive home (excellent station BTW... maybe 6 rapids and dozens if fast - all free to use), in the end a council worker disconnected the 12v battery for me and it sorted the issue.

Not a million miles off :LOL: the locals at the charge station I was stranded at seem to have themselves a "charge party" every Thursday night (don't be deceived by the photo... it came with small print 😅)

Didn't you hear? This is one of the new SWARCO fringe benefits. First they f*cked your network now they're coming to f*ck you too. :ROFLMAO: :ROFLMAO: :ROFLMAO:

All in jest, they just temporarily broke the network, we don't know how temporarily because we are still in the eye of that storm but when its fixed it'll be sweet..... we hope. The only folk being f*cked are the councils (or tax payers however you look at it) having to give out free charging again.
