Power Folding Mirrors Malfunction.....please help

10-23-2005, 12:47 AM

I am new here.

My dad's 2001 xj8 has powerfolding exterior mirrors.

The problem is, when you push the button they unfold, then keep going past the usual position, all the way forward. Pushing the button again folds the mirror all the way back again. In other words, we can;t have the mirrors coreectly deployed.

The dealer told him it was a $2000 fix!?!?

i dont believe it, please tell me theres a better/cheaper way.
