Tow Mirror Question

On the old style tow mirrors (2000) is the lower half angle mirror adjustable? I tried to push on the glass, but it didn't move and I didn't want to break it.

My passenger side one is barely useable when the full size mirror is adjusted properly.

They're not power adjustable though, right?

How hard do you have to push to move them?

It only makes sense that they should move, but I don't want to break the mirror.

no you have to move them manually
mine move fairly easy but as i said mine are new but if they have never been moved it might be hard i would say just go slow and try moving it in all directions

My 2000 original mirrors didn't move. They also didn't telescope or fold forward.
When my driver mirror was replaced, it was just like the old one except updated. It folded forward, telescoped, and had an adjustable lower mirror.

I believe this guy is correct. My 2000 the driverside telescopes and the top and bottom both move manually, but my passenger doesn't seem to telescope, nor does the bottom mirror move, but other trucks that seem to have a newer mirror they do move.

What do you guys know about going from manual mirrors to power?
