    Posted: 20 Sep 2010 at 9:29am
Hi - Does anyone know whether or not the electric door mirrors can be folded in manually (I'm hesitant to push and try).
I ask, because on my previous car with manually folding mirrors, I misjudged going into the garage and clipped the door mirror on the garage door frame. The mirror just nicely folded in, fortunately without any damage to the mirror. I've since put a soft edge protector on the garage door frame.
 
Cheers

HI Probyan,

There should be a switch located next to the adjustment knob for the mirrors that folds them both in and out!

Thanks for the reply Beefy.
I fully understand you can (and I do) use the switch. The question I was asking was whether or not you could fold them in manually. What if somebody leaned against them or somebody deliberatly tried to push them in? Would the mechanism then be broken.
 
Cheers

Ah sorry mate - I did wonder but you never mentioned the switch :)

I have never tried, but one would assume you can just push them in, as that's what they're designed to do in the event of them being clipped!   You also push manual ones in on cars that have electric adjustments (i.e. move around via motor but not fold) so just push that motherchugger in :D

To close them manually give them a bit of an open handed slap, they do need a bit of pressure.

Just noticed that when the door mirrors are folded in (either electrically or manually), the mirror on the drivers side sticks out about an inch more than the mirror on the passenger side.
Looks a bit odd when looking down from bedroom window.
Does Anyone else's do the same?

Thanks Mohawk.  Good to know. I'll stop looking out of the bedroom window as it offends my engineering background.

Do the mirrors fold when you lock the car? or is this something you do before locking?

If you fold mirrors in as you take key out then switch mirrors onto open position they open automatically when you put key in again.

Hi - Has anyone found any self adhesive protectors/guards that fit the folding door mirrors properly?

Them half covers look good.  Always thought they covered the whole of the mirror.  Was really looking for protection for a fiver rather than 30 plus.

Off to sunnier climes at 4am tomorrow. 
 Will look at these covers again if any cash leftover.  Might work out how many bottles of Red Stripe they cost, divide it by 14 and then cut back the wifes  daily allowance by said amount.
