Did you get to the bottom of this problem? Mine has exactly the same ailment.

memory mirrors

Hi Jason

No, I couldn't face asking Renault to look at it as they would bankrupt me. I've heard that it could be the potentiometers that need replacing or resetting. Apparently they take resistance readings to determine the position of the mirrors. How they work and how expensive they are I do not know. It could even be an old wives tale for all I know.

I have found that if you fold the mirrors before leaving the car, and then unfold them after you have set off again, they don't change their position. I suppose the fact that the car is moving overrides the mirrors desire to point in stupid directions.

If you do take the plunge and get them fixed, will you let me know? I'd be interested in a proper diagnostic and how much it costs.

All the best.
