telescoping mirrors won't telescope

I've pretty much given up on trying to get my power mirror motors to work, but I would like to be able to telescope them in and out. They are currently all of the way out, but I can push in with all 240 lbs and they will not budge. Anyone got any ideas?

Thanks,

Zook

Early 99 tow mirrors don't extend or retract. I also think that the bottom mirror is fixed. Thats if your truck is a 99.

What have you done in trying to get the mirrors to work electrically?

I've tried pulling them out as well. I can see about half of the red arrow on the bottom slider. btw, its a 2002.

CJ, i'm at work all day and don't have a picture on this computer. There is a bigger pic over on pavement sucks.

i put a continuity tester on the switch and it was good. there was voltage coming from the truck side of the harness....

figured out the telescope....all it took was a hammer. there was some grey stuff that had it held solid but the hammer loosened it up and was able to extend the mirrors... does the mirror glass pop off very easy??? the reason i ask is that i'm pretty sure I have power to the switch, but the motors don't do anything...
