    Hi all,

    I'm trying to work out if my car should angle the passenger side mirror when I put it in reverse? Because it doesn't.

    I've tried to put the mirror adjuster switch in all 3 positions but it doesn't make a difference.

    My car is a standard 2008/9 ES GT 2.2 I-DTEC with Sat-Nav, reversing camera, front and rear parking sensors.

    Thanks in advance.

    Mine does it as long as the switch is on the passenger side mirror setting.

    Is it an automatic transmission only thing?

    Adjustment switch on mirror pack must be positioned for passenger side and it works on my manual transmission EX model.

    For the left mirror to dip whislt reversing your mirror adjuster has to be set to left all the time.

    I've got a 2010 Type-S and its passenger mirror dips down in reverse.
    It can be turned of.

    Yes put the mirror adjuster to the middle or right and it will not dip when you put the car into reverse.

    nearside side mirror along with the camera and the parking sensors can really make you struggle when parking other cars... I say from experience :Hey:
