1999 Powerstroke Mirrors

Stupied question: does any one know if the side mirrors on a power stoke adjust inward? I looked in the manual, nothing there. They look like they should move. :shrug:

If they are the towing mirrors with 2 arms, yes they move in and out. Probly have years of crud in there making them difficult to move.

'00 cc f 350 a few mods, and a bts tranny.

Yes they do slide in and out....

If you are talking about them rotating. They do only pivot towards the drivers door one way on the older style.... the newer style can pivot to the front or to the back....
good luck,
Steven

'99s didn't slide in and out, not the early ones anyway they may have changed mid-year sometime. The little bottom mirror on the TT mirrors isn't adjustable either. They suck compared to the later ones, IMO.

I have a very early 99, not one thing late on it.. My driver side goes in and out but I don't think my passenger side does.. if it does it is stuck..


Is there a way to see the inside to determine if it moves before I make it?

The early 99 model has a fixed position. They did not slide. I had mine replaced in 2002 with those that do slide at a cost of around $300.00.

Yep...the early 99's had fixed arms. They don't move in or out.

And...if you do decide to upgrade to later style mirrors...be sure to get Ford mirrors. When I first replace mine...I got cheap aftermarket ones off of Ebay. The glass wiggled so badly going down the road I couldn't see anything. And there was no way to tighten them up.

I've since added heated Excursion mirrors. Much...much better.
