2008 tow mirrors

Hi folks changed out my 2008 small non towing mirrors for 2009 power fold Ford fd250 mirros. Seemed to function fine except no power telescope or fold. I found that I was missing the switch on driver door for the fold dah! I put thatin but noticed the wiring harness from mirror has no extra connector for the fold/unfold. Does any one know where I can find one ? The dealers parts folks looked at me like I was crazy. Thanks in Advance Mike C

I'm not sure if I'm understanding what harness connector your looking for. However the black plate on the door with the power glass/fold and in/out switchs you can get the connectors with pigtails from the dealership. I haven't been able to find the opposite side of the actuall mirror connectors though. I actually have a new black plate with both switches and connectors. If you need any wiring help let me know as I have the wiring diagram for the 08 f250

Thanks, Ithink the best way is to post a couple of picture I have 2 connectors on back of the plate but only 1 connector mpulled the entire door apart incase there was a hidden connector I wonder if there is just a Y connector . Let me find out how to insert pictures it asks for a URL. Kind Regards Mike C

Looks like your truck isn't pre wired for the telescope option, does your power fold work with the new mirrors? I no you can buy a pigtail connector for the one your missing because I have one. Now from my diagrams it looks like all the connectors on that panel are in the same harness. Shoot me a pm with your number to see if we can't figure it out.
