Question 1997 E320 Mirrors Switch not working

Hey everyone, I just need someones advise. Maybe someone has been thru the same problem. I have a 1997 E320. I have no electrical problems with this vehicle. Everything works except my side view mirrors. They work with the switch but only moves down no matter if i push the switch to the right or left or up the mirrow always moves down. And even with the memory setting they always move down. Both side mirrors do the same thing. Could it just be a bad switch?
or could it be something else?
Someone please help
thank you

I just replaced the power mirror switch on my 1994 E 320. It was damaged and original knob was destroyed. Once new switch was on, everything was fine except that the passenger side mirror will not move laterally. Since the switch is new, I have to assume the problem is elsewhere.
The switch cost $30 and it took dealer an hour to install it. Would seem to me new switch would be the place for you to start.

If both mirrors are acting the same way, I would tend to think it's the switch also. Problem is I believe on your 210 chassis that you need to buy the whole lower switch pack as a unit, although I think it is resonably priced. It'll include all the switches on the center console: all the window switches and the mirror switches, switch to pop the trunk, etc. Super easy to replace, you can definitely do it yourself, don't need a single tool IIRC.

ok thanks alot yeah i was thinking the same thing that if both mirrors are having the same problem that it would look like its the switch. Well i will check it out and let you guys know as to what the problem is. I dont think that i would have to change the whole console because i have got one of the rear window switches change recently and they did not have to change the whole console. So i will check it out and let you guys know
thanks alot for the reply.

210 mirrors gone haywire!

Was wondering if anyone has had some luck fixing this problem? I have 2 97 210's with the same problem, I also suspected the mirror switch, but when i swapped them with another 210, the switch from the bad car worked perfectly with the good car and vice versa. would appreciate any leads on fow to fix this thanks
