RETRACTABLE POWER DOOR MIRRORS

Post by maurelius » Sun Oct 06, 2019 12:13 pm

I recently purchased a 68 plate T4 Momentum in metallic black and full leather interior. The videos I watched praised this car for its high spec. Therefore, I was amazed to find that this car doesn`t have power folding mirrors. I have since been told that this feature was introduced in 2019!!!
I have checked the mirrors and they are exactly the same as a model in the showroom.
Could it be merely a question of software activation ?

From the manual ;

Automatic retraction when locking
When the car is locked/unlocked with the remote control key the door mirrors are automatically retracted/extended.

The function can be activated/deactivated in the menu system MY CAR.

Or ;

Press simultaneously L and R mirror buttons on the door at driver' side to fold the mirrors manually in case you need to fold them while passing narrow roads or parking at limited space at both sides of your car.

I think they are standard throughout the range. My 68 plate certainly has them. Check the settings.

If my memory serves me right all MY19 (UK) models had power folding mirrors. Auto-folding when locking/unlocking was only provided on the higher specification models. Without auto folding you have to use the door buttons as described by hakanoz2000 above.

I've got a T3 Momentum and see to have a hazy memory of having to specify folding mirrors on my 68 model...

Hi, I have a 68 plate T3 Momentum. I had to purchase folding mirrors as an added extra when I bought the car new. The cost was £125 at the time.
Ordered T3 Momentum 22nd May, expected 22nd September
