    Anyone have a super duty truck with the extendable mirrors? I bought my truck, they were extended out. Need them to go in to get it in the garage!!!!

    They are froze up or something. Any Ideas?

    What year is it and what are you trying to do. The 99's did not telescope (in and out). You can just fold them in. The newer ones telescope/fold. And you could also consider getting the heated ones. Well worth the money for plowing! I wouldn't do without them now.

    WD-40 down the telescoping arms, Wait..... push, Again with the WD-40, pull and push gently.
    Pull slighly after oiling. Hopefully it will work.

    If in fact they are frozen run a hair dryer out and heat them. Just watch out for water and electrical cords....:eek:

    Yes the 1999 Super Duty do not move :angry:
    I even took mine apart to check.
    I guess you could cut them a bit to make them shorter.

    I wish I could get my truck in my garage. Mirrors in or out doesn't matter, it is 5" too high. Oh well, more of a reason to put a lightbar on at some point!
