Becky, have the glass mirror's been removed?<br> sounds like a problem I had. They need to be snapped back into place, I thought they would break if pushed on any harder, but that was my problem

RE: Outside Mirror fix...Bob Terry

hey guys have the same problem, but one of the clips came out. Need a fix,it will move up and down but not left and right. At this point I think the glass needs to be removed

With the late type round mirrors the glass is held by a wire clip about 2" long at the top, unhook it and the glass can be taken out. The motor drive can be re set,the white pegs in the rubber boots have come right out. they can be centered and pushed back.

No sorry your glass just levers out from the front, put a flat blade in the outside edge and gently lever out.
