I'm a new owner of a 97 SE and have an issue with the rear view morrors being pointed a bit to low. I've tried to adjust them but they don't seem to move. There's nothing in the owners manual. Does anyone know how I can adjust them?

Just push on the top part of the glass to adjust up, the lower part to adjust down, the right, right and left, left.

The whole mirror doesn't adjust, just the glass. They work just fine on my '97 SE

Yeah they doo get sticky and often will not move in the direction that you'd want at first... sometimes it'll help to get em warm in the sun, then try to adjust them in some other direction to get things moving. Once you're OK moving, the ball/gimbal most often allow you to adjust to where you needed originally.

It's been my experience that they adjust more easlily left/right; I'd always assumed that this is do to the horizontal axis of the mirror being larger so there'd be a little more leverage available.

...slightly off-topic but it might also be useful to point out that like on many cars the part behind the rubber is articulated. With enough force (like when you come into contact with something) it will swivel forward of backwards (instead of breaking).
