My power mirrors are not working. Will replacing the power mirror control switch on the driver's side door correct the problem? Or is the motor that powers the mirrors in a different location? Thanks in advance for the info.
Thanks. Fuses are good. Not sure where to check & see if motor is getting juice. I thought the motor for the mirrors may be built into the back of the switch control, but wasn't sure. I'll take it apart this afternoon & see if the switch & motor are 1 unit.
Take a butter knife, ( my wife's favorite tool) Now slide it between the door pad and the door, start at the bottom. You will find after you slip it between that there are carrots that attach the door pad to the door.
They sell a tool to do this with and it will save the carrots, most parts stores carry them for a couple of bucks.
Don’t forget the screws under the handle that’s broke.
Any more than that just give us a holler we are here to help.
I just replaced the driver's side mirror (housing & all) recently so I'm sure the electrical components in the new mirror are good. I'm going to remove the door pad today or tomorrow & see where the switch motor is located. I''ll let you know.
I finally got around to replacing the switch control to my power mirrors. This did the trick. They are now both working properly. It was an easy fix and the switch control cost $59.95 from C/K Resto. My old switch control must have had a short or just been generally worn out. I didn't have to remove the entire door panel either. Just the control bank on the driver's side - it snaps in/out pretty easy.
