    When my driver side mirror is power folded, it makes contact with the door window. Is there a way to adjust so it doesn't hit or something I should check? Thank you.

    Roll down the window? lol

    I wonder if there's a "stop" on the inside that is broken. That may require getting inside the mirror to investigate.

    That is what I was thinking. Just don't know how to get to the stop.

    There's gotta be some sensor or something that needs adjustment / repair.

    I pulled all the panels i could and didn't see anything that could be adjusted. I hope i don't have to buy a new mirror.

    I might go so far as to speculate that there might be a set of contacts that either open or close when the mirror gets to the end of its travel to tell the motor to stop running. They may be bent slightly. It may be that at some point in time, someone folded or extended the mirror manually and the internal mechanism is "a cog off". I've never had my mirrors apart, so....speculation is about all I have for you. I do know that the mirror glass is replaceable, removing that may enable you to see more of the internal workings. I don't know the details of it's removal either though...
