Resetting to neutral

Mirrors that have been moved out of position by an external force must be reset electrically to the neutral position for electric retracting/extending to work correctly:

Automatic dimming*

Bright light from behind is automatically dimmed by the rearview mirrors.

For the door mirrors to be fitted with this function requires that the interior rearview mirror also has automatic dimming, see the section "Interior rearview mirror".

Automatic dimming is always active while driving, apart from when gearbox reverse position is selected. Dimming sensitivity can be adjusted in three levels and will affect the interior rearview and the door mirrors.
