I am installing 08 power and signal mirriors on an 03 6.0,I have got the lights to work,and the mirriors move but the functions are reversed when you move the mirrior left or right it moves left and right,and up and down also moves it left and right.any help in how to correct this would be great

Mine did the same thing on the 99. Figured the next time I pull the doors apart I'd flip a couple wires. But for now, I just live with it - as long as I know which way they go.

Doesn't work swapping at connector. Has to be done behind the glass. I thought I had saved a link to it but can't find it.

It can be where the wires used to go into the connector. I did one by pulling the glass out and then thought that is stupid. I did the other one inside the door instead of the mirror. Has been working fine for over a year now.

Didn't have any luck changing them in the door. Seems that botm motors would operate at the same time.

Huh, I did change the driver side in the mirror and the passenger side in the door. Maybe that had something to do with it. Sounds like ya got it taken care of though.

No, just live with them operating in reverse. Still have to find wires for the turnsignals. When I swapped the wires in the doors If I pushed the lever say to the right the mirror would move right but the other motor would also operate and move the mirror up. That make sense?
