Side mirrors retracted on their own!? How can I get them back to driveable posit on 1999 Volkswagen Jetta

position without the joy stick control? It broke off years ago.

If you can’t afford or don’t want to replace the broken switch, simply adjust the mirrors the old fashion way. Move the mirrors manually; you will hear ratcheting noises as you do this because you’re forcing the rack gears inside the mirrors mechanism to "jump".
