Hi all , looking for help with the folding mirrors on a liberty, do belive its a common problem, but dont want to replace the mirrors, as they are like new, and the motor sounds like its working on both mirrors ,they just will not fold?any ideas as to a quick fix?without replacing motors, anybody had this problem before and fixed it?
any help would be welcomed,Oh as I,m in england ,cannot just pop round to a breakers for bits
Thanks to stupid design, the only way to fix this is to replace the whole mirror. I had the same problem as Samaritan 183 so I took the door trim off to get at the mirror only to find that the cover over the motor and gears has a clip heat welded in place. So, is may only need a gear slipped back tinto place, but you can't open it up to do it. Haven't Jeep designers ever had their mirrors whacked in a parking lot?

Re: Folding Mirrors on jeep ltd
You can order online the mirrors
and have them delievered
did you check the switch for the mirrors sometimes its just a simple fix as replaceing a faulty switch
the switch would go out faster then the conventional mirror would try a replacement switch

no jeep model or year,stated, hopeless to help , that...
if you go to any online jeep part store, jeep.com
and look at the your mirror for your car, you will see what
parts are replaceable, and to what LEVEL
FYI< some bodies of jeeps have sub models and mirrors change.
you can walk in to jeep and look at their screen or
do so online.
on some cars the inside mirror parts are replaceble
others are not.
here is RANDOM picked JEEP
but shows you , just how easy it is too look by self.
some modles come with folding mirrors, they are called break aways, this is so if some one hits it it will fold, it does not mean that it will not break,, yours has stationary one piece, more prone to breaking.
The power folding function of your exterior mirrors on your '04 H2 depends on a plastic gear to collapse those mirrors at the touch of a button. That plastic gear strips very easily. The service adviser at our Hummer dealership said that problem was rectified in later model years with a redesign of of the collapsing mechanism of those mirrors.
I don't mind manually folding our mirrors, and I was afraid to ask about the cost of the parts required to solve the issue. The service guy didn't volunteer the cost of the fix. Not typically covered by aftermarket extended service/warranty plans.
Has it ocurred to you that your wing mirrors are not the electrically folding type, most are not. The switch on the drivers arm rest for adjusting the mirrrors will have a separate position for folding if yours fold. The resistance to fold by hand is very stiff as you have to overcome the spring tension, even when folded by hand they do not fold as flat as you might think.
I purchased a 2006 Golf 5 GT Tdi last year it had £5000 worth of factory fitted options but did not have electrically folding door mirrors - hope this helps.
the fuse for the mirrors is in the fuse block inside the car on the left side of the dash-however the mirrors do not fold in with the switch,you fold them in with your hand-usually for storage(car cover)
