Everytime I wash my car i get these streaks of water marks coming from the side mirrors. Does anyone else have this problem? Can it be prevented? It's really annoying to clean the car, drive somewhere and then have to wipe up the water marks when you get there. Thanks!

figured that one out

I get the same problem. what you do is this. open the door you are drying and just behind the mirror is a rubber pad. its has a corner that is held againts the body of the door with nothing more than plastic hooks. the water collects in the pocket between the rubber and the plastic housing. It leaks like that cus the water has gotten in but has no way of getting out quickly. In essence it needs a breather hole. So what I do is just remove or peel back the rubber edge and let all the water come out at once!! Problem solved. when you think all the water has come out just push back the rubber onto the hooks and you are set. no more drizzling stupid water leaking out of the side mirrors.:laughing:
