How to adjust outside mirrors.........

I just bought a 2001 chevy silverado. My passenger side mirror needs to be adjusted and I can't get anything to move. Does the whole black plastic unit on the door move, or does just the mirror inside the the plastic unit move? I don't want to force anything and break it.

Are they not electric ? If not then you would just adjust the glass of the mirror.

They came with manual or electric.

Manual you just adjust the glass.

Electric you use the switch, select left or right. If inop, you can push.

Also, on electric

Customer may comment about intermittent or inoperative power door locks and power outside rear view mirrors. Root cause may be chaffing or short in harness by the parking brake ratchet assembly. Inspect circuit 195 ( light blue ) door lock switch driver wire for chaffing or short to ground. Adjust harness to prevent further contact with any moving parts.

power mirror switches are also notorius for tarnishing from lack of use...causing intermittant operation. you might try just working the switch a whole bunch of times...my 2000 chevy tahoe suffers from this
