Trouble with Mirrors

I have Towing Mirrors on my 02 F250. When using the controls on it the mirror moves but not in the right directions what could be the cause of this?

I would assume that it's the switch. My old mirrors did that and my 08 mirrors do the same thing. I've just never cared enough to fix it

Yep. Mine would both move to the right and down. Bought a new switch from rockauto.com and the problem was fixed. It's only $13 or so plus shipping.

I ordered the switch and it helped a little the mirrors work better but still not the way they should. Any other ideas what it could be?

You don't always have to pull and rpelace the switch a lot of the time its simply the contacts are dirty. I remember my F150 had the same issue, pulled the switch apart and cleaned the contacts it was the McGuires that I was cleaning ythe rest of the door with built up on them.
