Hello all

Please feel free to shoot me down if this is a well known thing or if I'm being an idiot...

However, do the electric mirrors fold independently?

Reason I ask is that in the photo below (from the post below on Type R Owners Forum) the CW Type R appears to have only one mirror folded up?? I didn't know this was possible?

Mugen FN2 concept test drive/review. - Type R Owners Forums



Is this my eyes fooling me? is this possible?

Cheers

Ant

I understand that they operate individually, as in they have their own motor etc... but can this actually be controlled?

Anyone?

I think you will find that that has been folded manually not electrically... [smilie=noeyedear-s:

This...

No they can't be controlled individually - even if, as described, they are running seperately (explaining why one folds before the other etc. etc.)

I folded mine manualy for many times and nothing happened... I'm guessing that electronical mechanism do not move while you fold and unfold your mirrors manualy.
No need to worry ;)

It does. Truely horrible.
I returned to my car in a car park to find that one mirror had been folded in :mad:. Clicking it back into position made me feel like i was damaging it.

That's what I thought! That's why I was surprised to see this on a new CW in a showroom!

back to the question ..... :D I always press the button on the door. Would be excellent if they folded when locking the car or something.

They can be closed while on the move, when stopped etc as long as there is power to the ignition, you can press the switch any time
