Angling adjustment of the door mirrors

To ensure better visibility to the rear, the door mirrors need to be set to the preferences of the driver.

There are a number of automatic settings that can also be linked to the memory function buttons for the power seat*.

Using controls for door mirrors

P6-1746-XC40-Power door mirrors control

Controls for door mirrors.

The door mirror positions are adjusted with the joystick in the driver's door control panel. Ignition position must be at least I.

Press the L button for the left-hand door mirror or the R button for the right-hand door mirror. The light in the button illuminates.

Adjust the position with the joystick in the centre.

Press the L or R button again. The light should no longer be illuminated.

Folding in rearview mirrors electrically*

The mirrors can be retracted for parking/driving in narrow spaces.

Depress the L and R buttons simultaneously.

Release them after approximately 1 second. The mirrors automatically stop in the fully retracted position.

Fold out the mirrors by pressing down the L and R buttons simultaneously. The mirrors automatically stop in the extended position with the previous setting.

Resetting to neutral

Mirrors that have been moved out of position by an external force must be reset electrically to their original position for electric retracting/extending* to work correctly.

Fold in the door mirrors by pressing down the L and R buttons simultaneously.

Fold them out again by pressing the L and R buttons simultaneously.

Repeat the above procedure as necessary.

The mirrors are returned to the original position.

Angling during parking

Only in combination with power seat with memory buttons*.

A door mirror can be angled down for the driver to view the side of the road when parking, for example.

Engage reverse gear and press the L or R button.

Note that the button may need to be pressed twice, depending on whether it was already preselected. The button flashes when the door mirror is angled down. When reverse gear is disengaged, the door mirror automatically starts to return after approx. 3 seconds and then reaches its original position after approx. 8 seconds.

Automatic angling during parking

Only in combination with power seat with memory buttons*.

With this setting, the door mirror is automatically angled down when reverse gear is selected. The folded position is preset and cannot be adjusted.

Tap on Settings in the centre display's top view.

Press My CarMirrors and Convenience.

Under Exterior Mirror Tilt at Reverse, select Off, Driver, Passenger or Both to activate/deactivate and to select which review mirror should be angled.

You can make the door mirror return to its original position by pressing the L or R button twice.

Automatic retraction when locking*

In the centre display, you can set all the rearview and door mirrors to retract/extend automatically when the car is locked/unlocked using the key.

Tap on Settings in the centre display's top view.

Press My CarMirrors and Convenience.

Select Fold Mirror When Locked to activate/deactivate.

However, if the mirrors have been folded in using the L and R buttons, they have to be folded out manually as well.
