Default Powerfold mirror motor test?

I have a set of powerfold mirrors that i am considering fitting to my car, but before i go ripping the doors apart, am i able to test that the motors actually work in the mirrors before fitting, as they havent been used for some time? My car doesnt have the required wiring/switch for powerfolds but I have these off a donor car. Thanks for reading.

I've installed a set of skull powerfold mirrors last week. As I could not fit the loom ( my car is LHD and the loom was RHD) I removed the orange wires with the plugs from the loom and installed in the door loom of my 75. I started with the driver side as it's easy to install and get a test to see if is actually working once you have the new switch cluster with power fold mirrors button.

You can see in this video.

Btw I did not remove the doors in order to fully installed the wires.

Wire the motors across the battery from the two powerfold connections on the mirror. connected one way will open the mirror, reversing the polarity will close it.
