Product Description

Click Here for DIY Instructions !!  

LIFETIME WARRANTY ON ALL GEARS AND MOTORS ! is PROUD to release these SOLID BRASS gears, hardened steel center shafts, and high torque replacement motors for the Ford truck power folding TOW mirrors !  The helical cut brass gears exactly match the Ford plastic version and are MUCH STRONGER so they will not chip, strip, or break.  The center shafts are machined in house from hardened steel to exactly match the OEM shape.  And, our tried and true reliable high torque replacement motors have the factory correct wiring plug and come with a new motor-gear preinstalled as well - PLUG AND PLAY, READY TO DROP IN !  This is a GREAT WAY to save about $1300 per side, as Ford will not sell the gear or motor separately - instead, they make you buy an entire new power folding/telescoping mirror assembly (with more plastic gears and failure prone motors that will also soon break).  Dont throw away your hard earned money!  


The replacement brass gears comes pre-attached to a newly machined hardened steel main shaft with gear already pressed on.  We no longer offer the loose spur option.

PLEASE NOTE : When ordering, there is driver side and passenger side option, so please choose accordingly.

The replacement high torque motor comes with its own motor-gear already pressed on and is ready to drop in - it plugs right into the Ford wiring harness.  This is a stronger more reliable motor !

You will need 2 motors and 2 gears to fix 1 Power Folding Mirror.  You will need 2 power extend motors to fix power extend on both sides as well. Chose your options from the drop down menu when ordering and note the package pricing to save $$ !!   

These gears and motors carry a LIFETIME WARRANTY !

Please Note : The brass gears will not replace the power telescoping gears.  If you need assistance with power telescoping gears, please hit "Contact Us" and let us know about it, we can build those too if people want them !  We already do offer the power telescope motors, which are not the same as the power fold motors.

This product fits all F150/250/350/450/550/650 Ford Trucks with the TOWING power folding mirrors from 2008-Present.  The following list of part numbers is in NO WAY complete, we will be adding to this frequently.

  1. 2012 F250 Passenger Mirror 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 21st Oct 2022

    Thanks to Paul for his support, I ordered the 2 motors and gears for the passenger mirror. Did not need the gears after all (the original gears were already metal and good) , just the motors. Installed the motors today. Works great, faster than the driver side mirror. The only thing I could say is to post more pictures of the products. Great customer service. Will use again.

    Thank You

  2. Amazing product! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 9th Jul 2022

    The machine work on these gears and shafts were top notch! I was able to fix my folding mirror at a much lower cost than from the dealer and it won't break again like the original plastic gears. The instructions were a little confusing at times and I had to watch a couple of YouTube videos to explain things a little better. Its a lot of intricate work on fairly delicate parts but I was able to get through it without breaking anything. If you take your time and don't rush, it can be done. The second mirror will be much easier now that I know how to do it. Thank you for machining such a quality product.

  3. That was TOUGH 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 4th Apr 2022

    Holy Moly! I've been doing auto trim work-some professionally- for nearly 40 years, and that was rough! Bottom line-- I saved over $1,000. Line above that-- this repair is not for someone who does not have a real toolbox, knowledge, and instinct. Over 6 hrs for 1st mirror. Instructions are iffy- watch a lot of YouTube. Go slooooowwwww on disassembly. My gears were not broken, but motors were dead. I wish someone would sell a good video to Gruven for this Ford SD tow mirror repair. I fretted for 2 years about this repair and the end result was it worked. Thumbs up, but this repair is NOT for a novice. I broke 2 plastic pieces, but so far that has not affected the finished product. 2011 F350 King Ranch power fold, power telescope, heated, memory. God Bless the USA!

  4. 2016 F250 power mirror 3 Star Review

    Posted by on 1st Mar 2022

    Update my review, had some problems with the gear parts. However with cleaning up the spiral gear with stainless wire brush and emery cloth and using a good Synthetic grease, I used prematex I was able to get the the motors and gears working.

  5. perfot fit a little louder then OEM 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 28th Mar 2021

    Parts fit great motors make a lot of noise and moves faster than OEM. Do you guys know why once I install the one mirror drivers side the telescoping feature didn’t work on either one and the passenger side wasn’t touched. Thanks

    --response --

    Thanks for the review. The gears may make a bit more noise being metal on metal vs metal on plastic but they should break in. Also some white paste lithium grease will quiet it down too.

    As for the power extend not working on the opposite side ... No I cant think of any reason working on the driver side would influence passenger side. I will say that its VERY common for the OEM power extend motors to fail. I would be replacing power extend motors with the power fold gears/motors since the labor overlaps. You will need to access that unit and see whats going on, bench test OEM motor. I bet its just given up the ghost, they all do at some point...

  6. quality products 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 1st Mar 2021

    I searched for replacement mirror set and rebuilding them with new gear sets and motors I easily saved a $1000.

  7. make sure this is the problem!! 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 1st Mar 2021

    Nothing against the product but it was not my issue. Take the time to take your mirror apart to make sure this is the problem! Mine was the splines on the pivot shaft stripped not the motor gears. The instructions could be better.

    Cody pls email me, send pic of what was bad on your mirror, we can probably make it better. Hit the contact us button Thanks


  8. Solid Repair, but Instructions Could Be Better 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 1st Feb 2021

    The repair went well. The new motors and gears worked great once I got the mirror apart. This is not something you will be able to tackle in a short amount of time. Be ready to have a few hours set aside to do the work.
    I found the instructions provided a nice overview of the task but lacked critical details that make the process appear to be straight forward and simpler than it really is. First issue, I broke my convex mirror because I followed the instructions and just pulled on the mirror edge to remove it. This is a $70.00 mistake. The right way to remove the convex mirror is to use the same method of removal as the main mirror above it. Use your long-handled flat blade screwdriver and go in approximately at the same angle as the larger mirror. Second, there are additional plastic clips on the mirror body and the plastic mirror arms that are not mentioned in the instructions. Removing these is easier once you know what you’re looking for, but when you go in blind, it is difficult, and you run the risk of breaking the plastic clips. My suggestion, do your research, there are lots of forums where others have detailed how to take apart these mirrors.

    Thanks for the honest feedback. I will look into the DIY instructions more. IF anyone wants to put together a detailed video, we would compensate. Contact me.

  9. Great Product and Great Support 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 18th Jan 2021

    Nothing but great things to say about the product and the support. Excellent quality, take your time with the install and follow the directions clearly (don't remove the mirrors before you have to)... Paul provided excellent service to help me troubleshoot my mirrors as I had another wiring issue I discovered when I pulled the mirrors apart. Highly recommended - cannot go wrong with these!

  10. Make sure the motor/gears is the issue. 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 3rd Jan 2021

    I finally got the mirror apart and ruined the heater doing it. It looks like the housing plastic clip was broke and binding, not the motor nor stripped gears as commonly reported on the internet. That's how I came to find these parts, powerstroke forum.
    It was a complete struggle to get the mirror apart, and the instructions aren't that great/complete. Really need an exploded diagram. Nothing in the Ford shop manual about taking it apart. There's several different variations of this mirror and not all the same. For instance mine did not have a "cover" piece.
    When I got the new motor and drive shaft in, lubed, and cleaned up the rust the motor worked very good.
    The parts that Gruven's sells work very good! But not my problem.
    Not sure I'll be able to get the mirror back together and functional, as it's a poorly designed piece not intended to come apart, plastic is old and brittle. Plus now I have an added cost for mirror replacement.
    I was fortunate to find a complete new mirror and it's much easier just to replace the whole thing.
