Mirror Folding Problem

Hi All, I just bought a 2008 B150. There is an interesting problem I came across after driving a day or two. After starting up the engine and begin driving,the driver’s side mirror tries to fold when the car exceeds exactly 47 km/h.

The reason that the mirror can not conclude folding action is a screw. The previous owner found a solution to mount the screw with a “decent“ angle to the point that the mirror connects to the door. And I somehow did not see it while checking out the car.

It only happens for once in one driving. it does not repeat until I switch on the engine and accelerate to 47 next time.

Does anybody had the same problem before or have any idea for me to sort that out?

Thank you in advance

my left mirror folding mechanism is broken and I glued it to a fixed position and yes after running engine and moving for a while broken mirror gears starts working for a few seconds. I thought it tries to unfold mirror fully, maybe car knows mirror is not fully unfolded, I don't know how. Nothing happens on the right side no broken parts and it is working good. I read somewhere; after replacing mirror assembly there is a procedure to calibrate mirror folding action. maybe someone could share. I think yours is replaced or folded not properly before.
