    Yes, my passenger side did this for a few weeks. Dealer took a look and couldn't fault it. It's now fixed itself and has been fine for weeks. I'm putting it down to bedding in.

    Is this when it initially releases itself from the closed position?

    Thread revival.

    My drivers side mirror has started with an intermittent juddering noise when folding in. Doesn't do it every time, and if you touch the mirror when it's happening you can feel the mirror juddering.

    Anyone had recent similar experience?

    Mine still occasionally judders. Last time it was at the dealers I mentioned it to the technician who said it could just be the rubber seals becoming a bit dry.... who knows!

    Had this intermittently on my last car.
    A quick squirt of WD40 at the bottom of the mirror mechanism and all sorted - be sure to wipe any excess off immediately though.

    Yes, my passenger mirror judders noisily too sometimes. It's the rubber seal...

    Rubber seal between the base and the mirror? I have some dry silicon spray that I may try if so.
