    Title says it, I've got power mirrors and can't figure out how to adjust the convex portion. I've tried manually adjusting but they're solidly in place. One of my co workers said pushing the arrow down twice would switch it to the convex but that doesn't work either. Surely there is some way to adjust these?

    The convex portion is not power, you have to move them manually. Maybe they are seized? Mine move easily enough.

    Pics didn't come up on my phone earlier. I can see now on my laptop.
    Yes, I just lean on a corner of the convex with my thumb to move them. Definitely not powered.

    I liked those cab mount mirrors. easier to clean the windows in winter too. But the #### chrome peels off them all the time.

    So now I got the door mounts on this 2020 thinking the metal heads would be better, but they are falling apart too, LOL.
    And you can't get your hand between the mirror arms and the window glass to clean the windows.
