Power side mirror - ok to manually/forcefully fold in and out??

Hey all -

I'm a new owner of a 08 Sequoia Limited and had about 2 weeks now and it's been great! So I don't fold my mirrors in often, but I've done so the last few times when I drop it off at the car wash. What occasionally happens is that the kids who are drying don't often look for the button to unfold the mirrors so they crank on the mirror itself to fold it open. I then have to manually fold it in because it feels "off track", then the button will work again to fold/unfold.

So I guess my first question...I assume these are designed to take a hit and fold in/out if someone forces it? Or is that a bad thing and it should only be done with the power button?

Thanks!

I think I'd start washing the car myself if I were you! Either that or teach the car wash attendants to use the actual button to unfold the mirrors. Folding power mirrors in manually is ok if you need to (such as if your battery is flat or a fuse has blown) but doing it regularly isn't recommended.
