All the tow mirrors telescope but they aren't power telescoping until the 2008 year.

My Buddie has an 06 or 07 6.0 one ton dually powerstroke, and his mirrors will telescope from a touch of a button. Mine don't though, I kinda got to tap it to get it to slid out.

Send a message via AIM to southern7.3
I had the same thing happen to me they sent me one power winder and one not. Bought them off of ebay so I sent them back and got me the right stuff. I think what he meant by power telescoping was that the mirror was power not the whole thing...just a guess

They didn't offer it until 2008. So unless he has converted it to 08 mirrors and controls or there are aftermarket mirrors that are power telescoping then he doesn't have it.

Just grab the mirror housing and yank. Once it starts to move it should get easier.
