People with electric mirrors - is it possible to move the mirror glass manually if the electrics fail?
Reason I ask is Ive had my drivers door card off in a misguided attempt to fix the courtesy light and the long and the short is Ive ended up with the manual adjust for the wing mirror not connected. I thought this would not be a problem as I could just open the window and move the glass around with my hand BUT, it appears that its the tension on the 3 cables that connect with the little joystick are what hold the mirror in place so it now wont hold position. So Im thinking of replacing it with an electric mirror (theyre not that much more expensive but leaving the electrics unconnected and adjusting the glass by hand. Just not sure if the mirror is moveable by hand or if its too highly geared/stiff.
