Oops - Mirror Adjustment

My wife and I bought a Jeep Compass today. I had previously test drove the vehicle and loved the way it handled so today we bought a Compass (North package).

It was late in the day by the time we finished the deal and we have to go back for detailing next week.

I had to read about a lot of features since our vehicle has a lot of them.

I thought that the remote mirror was for the drivers side only so I adjusted the passenger mirror by hand. Then I realized that the "joystick" works both mirrors.

Did I mess up the passenger mirror by adjusting it by hand? I tried the remote function and it worked but is my mirror out of alignment now? There is no way I would tell my wife this and I'm kind of ashamed to ask the dealer.

Nah if it works I'm sure it's fine. No power mirrors on my Jeep, but I've moved power mirrors in other cars by hand and you get that clicky/ratcheting sound that practically says "doh!! That one's power," but it always works fine afterward. Doesn't need to be realigned or anything.

Thank you. I still feel dumb but better now.

First Jeep I've ever owned but it wont be my last. The handling and braking are great. I test drive another brand of vehicle after I test drove the Compass and there was no comparison.

I've had several vehicles in my lifetime and nothing drives like a Jeep.

No you won´t have damaged it.
In future everytime you clean the mirror you will realize that you move it.
