I did a quick search on car-part to check the local yards, didn't see a whole lot of stock there for them and it didn't have a way to search for the mirror switch. So gonna have to see what else I can come up with for them
Have you started at page one of this thread? Somewhere in the first two pages, you will see that a switch from a '90s Caprice will work, and will also fit into the original hole where the cable remote knob mounts.

Yeah I did, that is what I had meant that I was able to search through the Fiero mirrors but couldn't find the Caprice mirror switch

Since I figured it’d be easier to wire a power passenger side mirror up rather than route the remote cable into a dash I don’t have the hardware for, I went to a local yard to see what they have and can confirm that 3rd gen F bodies use a different housing for this setup, but may use the same glass and motors. I’ll be digging into the one I grabbed in the future.

For comparison to Fiero, the red mirror is from a 87 Trans Am specifically:

The mounting pedestal is around a 1/4 inch shorter, and may have a different angle to it. The glass looks nearly identical though.

And ones from a C4 Corvette that I regrettably couldn’t grab, the boss doesn’t want to part it out yet.

Upon closer inspection the 3rd gens and the C4s might use the same housing. Motors may retrofit, but I have to take one of my doors apart to find out.
