    I seem to remember some threads on this forum about checking to see if the auto rear view mirror is or is not working, with tech specs etc.

    I have tried to search on "mirror" and "rear view mirror" just now and cannot find any threads.

    Anyone know how to check to see if these things are working correctly?

    I have a 7th Generation, Exec 2.4 Tourer, New in Dec'07.
    Thanks

    I have only one button (have I missed sommit?!) I have tried the one button by the green light, this just turns the light on/off, does not seem to do much more...........

    now go for a drive and toggle between the buttons (When it safe) you need a steady stream of traffic from the rear which is overtaking you to see the difference.

    When theres no bright headlights behind you even with the green light on the mirror will look normal. When there is bright light behind you it will dim.
