Manual mirror problems.

I bought some replacement fold away styled manual mirrors, to replace my flag style mirrors. After installing them, the drivers side mirror does not adjust far enough in to see good. When sitting inside the truck, i have to lean my head way over to see the side of the truck. Is there some kind of adjustment behind the glass to make it move farther in so i can see safely? I went and bought a blind spot mirror and that helped a little, but not enough, so just wanting to know if i have to live with it? Or can it be fixed. Thanks.

They're aftermarket. The passenger one is fine, it's just the driver side.

i haven't had any problems with my aftermarket foldaways. i'm only like 5'6 or 5'7 though so i don't need them to adjust up much.

Mine adjusts up fine, they don't adjust far enough in.The foam on the back of the mirror is real thick so i am going to remove it and see if that helps, if not i am taking it back.
