    hi thanks for the reply, yes have checked the switch & it,s ok, the mirrors did work, just got lazy then packed it, there is no problem with altering the angle of the mirrors that workd fine as does the heated part ,it just the fact the fold back part has gone faulty, i can here the motor working but the mirrors just dont work, was thinking there might be a lug or something thats not engaging of has broken, just wondering if anybody has a diagram of the way the motor moves the mirror? that would be a help

    thanks

    The passenger's side mirror on my 2002 Jeep Liberty is loose. The mirror itself inside the housing is not loose but the entire housing itself. It should stay in a fixed position for use but it is loose and swings in towards the door when the vehicle is moving. It's as if some part is missing that allows this to happen. What can I do to fix it?

    We've had the same problem with our Liberty/Cherokee. It was fixed once under warranty and whatever they did it did not involve replacing the mirror. Sometimes it can be fixed by moving the mirror by hand, to get everything to re-engage, but even that stops working after a while. My guess is something jumps out of place and has to be re-seated, but I've been trying to find out how you do that, too.

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?

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

    The mirror motor engages at the top (round cylindrical bit) but is driven by internal gears which tend to strip as happened to me. The only solution is to replace whole unit (at Chrysler's exhorbitant prices).

What are folding mirrors on a 94 cutlass? im told my replacement mirror is a folding but im possitive mine are fixed and the housing does not move without breaking.maybe im missing something. thanks


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.

I want to replace the mirrors on my 2008 ford focus so they can fold. can i buy those mirrors


The SVT has the folding mirrors. The size of the mirror itself is the same, you'd just need to check the connector and make sure it's the same. The parts department should know if they are the same.

2003 gmc mirrors do not fold in


The power mirrors are controlled by a module (computer) DDM - drivers door module an the PDM - passenger door module .
Folding Mirror System
Folding Mirror System Controls
The folding mirror system requires signals from 2 separate switches. The mirror select switch must be in the neutral/fold position and the mirror direction switch must be activated to the left/extend or right/retract positions. Both switches are integrated into the DDM and provide direct signals.
Folding Mirror System Operation
Upon receipt of the required switch inputs the DDM will supply battery voltage and ground to the mirror fold motor control circuits to perform the requested extend or retract function. The DDM will also send a class 2 message to the PDM indicating the requested function. The PDM will supply battery voltage and ground to the mirror fold motor control circuits to perform the requested extend or retract function.

Power Mirror System
Power Mirror System Components
The power mirror system consists of the following components:
• The driver door module--Class 2 module with integrated switches and requires programming when replaced
• The passenger door module--Class 2 module with integrated switches, requires programming when replaced and also contains the RFA receiver
• The power mirror direction switch--Integrated into DDM and is a 4-position momentary switch that provides a signal input to the DDM for up, down, left/extend and right/retract with a mirror switch activation
• The mirror select switch--Integrated into DDM and is a 3-position switch that allows the operator to select the left or right mirror and also a neutral/fold position
• The left outside power mirror--Contains both the vertical and horizontal mirror motors and is serviced as a complete mirror assembly
• The right outside power mirror--Contains both the vertical and horizontal mirror motors and is serviced as a complete mirror assembly
• The body control module--Class 2 module that requires programming when replaced, serves as the power mode master and is the main message handler
• The DDM 10A fuse--Located in the I/P fuse block and is hot at all times
• The PDM 10A fuse--Located in the I/P fuse block and is hot at all times
• The memory switch, if equipped with memory mirrors--Supplied power by the DDM and provides a voltage signal to the DDM upon a switch activation
• The horizontal and vertical position sensors, if equipped with memory mirrors--Supplied a 5-volt and low reference by the DDM/PDM and provide a variable voltage signal to the DDM/PDM that is proportional to mirror position
• The park neutral position switch, if equipped with memory mirrors--Provides transmission gear selection information to the PCM and is used for memory recall and mirror tilt in reverse functions
• The powertrain control module, if equipped with memory mirrors--Class 2 module that requires programming when replaced and provides Class 2 message indicating transmission gear selection
• The driver information center (DIC), if equipped with memory mirrors--Part of the instrument cluster which is a Class 2 module that requires programming when replaced and is used to personalize the memory recall and mirror tilt in reverse functions
• Fold motor in each of the outside mirrors, if equipped with power fold mirrors--Provides extend and retract movements of the mirror and is serviced as a complete mirror assembly
Each of the outside power mirrors contains 2 reversible motors to provide horizontal and vertical movement of the mirror glass. The vertical motor operates the up and down directions and the horizontal motor operates the left and right directions. If equipped with power folding mirrors, each outside power mirror will contain a reversible fold motor to operate the extend and retract functions. Each of the mirror motors are circuit breaker protected.
DTC B1722
The driver door module (DDM) and passenger door module (PDM) switch the mirror fold motor control circuits to battery voltage and ground in response to mirror extend or retract command.

Hummer H2 Power folding mirror won't fold


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.

Wing mirrors on 06 plate Golf TDi


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.
