Has anyone had any issues with the side mirrors appearing to melt? This hasn’t been hit, instead it’s from heat - it looks like. I just measured with an infrared thermometor and at 11:50 am it’s at 145 degrees. This looks like it’s melting.

Sorry. After thinking this through further, it's more likely that this happened from outside of the mirror rather than inside.

Could be vandalism or something that focused sun energy on that spot, like a well placed magnifying glass.

An electrical issue would likely result in a blown fuse before getting anywhere hot enough for long enough to cause that damage.

Sorry about that but I think it’s the suns reflection from a window that magnified it. At least that mirror cap is replaceable. Maybe try parking in a different location where a window won’t reflect onto the car, like the one in the background.
