Press the auto fold mirror switch to fold the mirrors in ^ Wait a short period (8 seconds), press the switch down again to auto unfold the mirrors back out ^ Listen for a loud popping noise, indicating resetting of the mirrors is complete. If a pop is not heard, repeat the procedure until the pop is heard.

The problem is with the REVERSE mirrors which was replaced on the driver side
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
The complete driver side mirror was replaced. Now it { the reverse feature } does not work properly

Ok, you only mentioned folding mirror, not the automatic reverse tilt down feature. Unfortunately, Ford does not have a DIY calibration for this feature. The ONLY way to calibrate it is with a WDS scan tool, which is a Ford factory level scan tool and software.
