Side view mirrors

Does anyone know how to readjust the side view mirrors that are electric and work great ? My friend and his girl friend adjusted them manualy instead of using the electric door control and now I cant get the mirrors to adjust correctly unless I do it manualy ! There is nothing wrong with the motor just out of adjustment. I tried looking on you tube but nothing there except how to do it with the control on the arm rest . No help from google either .
I know its petty but it annoys me !!!!!

Wow. Hate to say this, but if it were me, my friend and his GF would be paying for me to take it to the dealership to fix. Aren't a lot of manually adjustable mirrors these days

I think you will just have to keep repositioning them a little at a time manually until you can get them back to a neutral position in relation to the motor position. It sounds like the mirror is against the motor stop and won't move electrically in a specific direction. Do the mirrors move at least a little when the switch is used? Do either of the mirrors move in any direction electrically?

The mirror glass can be manually repositioned without damaging anything. I have done it frequently, by accident, when trying to clean a stubborn spot off of the mirror.

Yes they move in all directions but not where you can adjust them to the right angle . I've done all that but the motor takes it to one position and starts clicking but cant move any further . I'm thinking that you put the mirror in one position and keep holding the control for so many clicks and let go . Sounds stupid but I don't know ! I jumped him about screwing it up but its done now !!!

As Cart says above...

Adjust them electronically as far as you can to get as close as possible to the desired position.

Then gently manually move them back a little. May have to do this a few times, little each time.

Then they should be able to be electronically adjusted to the desired spot.

That should work for vertical and horizontal
