There are two tiny motors in each mirror. one for up/down. One for side to side. They have jack screws (plastic) that fit into the motors.

You can manually put your hands on either side of the mirror and force adjust it. If you hear a ratcheting sound, the jack screws are OK. Then repeat with hands on top and bottom.

If you hear ratcheting and mirror stays where you stop it, that means one of the motors is bad. The motor assembly is available as a separate part.

What's your problem? The side view mirrors on my 2002 Chevy Tahoe do not adjust using the toggle located on the driver side door panel.


The switch is a contact type. When you move the switch it complete the circuit by connect the two contacts points. After some time the switches wear out simply replace the switch.

Power mirrors dont stop adjusting to the right what would cause the problem?


this sounds like its the adjuster switch the one you use to move the mirrors left or right is stuck to the right, or stuck down on the right side of the switch, try replacing the switch this will possibly cure the problem...hope this helps

Mirrors will not fold in.


It is a stuck motor. Water gives rust inside housing. Remove mirror and clean motor and components. This is a well known error for H2 mirrors.
