Anyone have issues with their 08 power folding mirrors

Some azzhat manually folded my mirror and now it won't operate with the switch. I can hear the motor running but the mirrow doesn't move. The other one works fine. Any idea what i can do to fix this?

You are supposed to be able to manually fold them as well... In fact, the manual says that in order to "re-sync" the mirrors, you manually fold them in and then hit the switch to fold them out.

It sounds like it could have stripped a gear in the mirror folding motor or something. I have folded mine manually before, and have never had a problem with the motor not working afterwards. Others have manually folded my mirrors as well, not knowing they were power folding and they worked fine after folding them back.
Maybe try this:
Powerfold mirrors out of synchronization:
This may occur if one of the mirrors has been bumped out of position, then the powerfold switch is used. To re-synch the mirros, fold them both in towards the cab until an audible popping is heard. Then press the powerfold switch to re-deploy the mirrors. Folding one mirror completely in, then fully out by habd will not unsynch the mirrors. Broadcast Message 7051.

Well this did not work for me. I folded them in, i heard a "pop" and only the drivers side deployed when i hit the switch.
It was raining so i didn't screw with it more than i had to but i'll try it again later.
