Problem with telescoping mirror control switch. F250 super-duty

This is a 2008 F250 Super-Duty Diesel
The down postition of the telescoping mirror control switch is not working. The mirrors will not fold or tilt down. Can I remove the assembly to check the wires?

    I hate to answer my own question; but since I have the solution, here goes.

    The mirror controls are mounted in a plastic assembly at the top of the driver-side door panel.

    This assembly will pop out with minimal force as it's only held in by several spring clips. I suggest a spackle knife. Use caution not to damage the door panel or assembly.



    Replace the switch that is not working. Once you pop the assembly, it's plain to see how to disconnect and remove the switch. The wiring harness plug just pulls out. And, actually I was able to open up the switch and carefully clean it. The root cause of the problem is that the laquer coating on the circuit board inside the switch flaked off and interferred with the switch connection. The switch was made in Mexico. I suggest getting a new switch though - it cost less than $40.



    This should be covered by warrenty. But, the local dealers wants the truck for the whole day.

    They claim that it is a difficult job to remove the whole door panel and diagnose the problem. You will see that the whole job takes about 10 minutes, probably only 5 minutes the second time you do it.

SOURCE: how do i remove the wing mirror (power adjust

Roll the window down first, you will need 2 hands. Pull the small cover off that is at the top front of the door pannel. You will then disconnect the wire connector and remove the three 11mm nuts that are holding the mirror in place. Pull mirror out and replace.

If you dont have just that little pannel you will have to remove the door pannel. If you dont have power windows pull the cover out on the window crank and move it to the side, there will be a screw holding the crank in place. Remove it. If you do have power windows remove the window control switch plate (it will just pop up using a small screwdriver) and disconnect the wires. If equipped, remove the front door trim panel reflector or the courtesy lamp lens. Then remove the screws. DO NOT pull directly outward on the door pannel, something will brake. Remove the front door trim panel by pulling it straight upward.Lift and remove the front door trim panel. Then the nuts holding the mirror will be visible, remove and replace the mirror.

2001 ford f250 super duty power mirrors don't work, power at fuse but not at switch


If power at fuse, must have power coming out of fuse. Check both sides of the fuse. If no power to switch that's all it could be if the plug is all the way on the switch and switch is good.

Diesel fumes in cab, '03 f250


If its raw fuel fumes check for fuel leaks on top of the motor. If its exhaust fumes you probably have an exhaust leak on the cross pipe at the rear of motor over the transmission. Take a telescoping mirror and flash light have a look. Might even slide under neath and take a peak as well. Make sure wheels are chocked with something first.
