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

P5 1507 Power door mirrors control
Controls for door mirrors.

The door mirror positions are adjusted with the joystick in the driver's door control panel. The car must be in usage mode Comfort or higher.

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.

Fold 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.

Automatic retraction when locking*

The door mirrors are automatically retracted/extended when the car is locked/unlocked using the key. The function can be deactivated via the centre display.


If the mirrors are retracted manually using the L and R buttons, and the car is then locked, the mirrors will not be extended automatically when the car is unlocked, even if this setting has been made. Extending must be carried out manually using the L and R buttons.

Resetting to neutral

Mirrors that have been moved out of position due to external influences, such as being frozen in the retracted position and manually unfolded, must be electrically reset to their original position for the electrical retraction/extension* to work properly.

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 reset to neutral position and electrical retraction and extension work again.

Angling during parking1

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 needs to be pressed twice. The button flashes when the door mirror is angled down. When reverse gear is engaged, the door mirror automatically returns to its original position.

Automatic angling during parking1

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

Press iCup-2037-Settings symbol in the centre display.
Press Controls.
Select the desired setting under Exterior mirrors tilt when reversing.

You can make the door mirrors return to their original positions by pressing the L or R button twice.
