  • Folding mirrors

    Hi,

    is there a way to reprogram the mirrors to be automatically controlled by the remote? Fold in when lock and out when open, you probably get the point

  • #2
    can they do that anyway?

    i thought theyd have to be pushed by hand to fold in...

        Folding mirrors are a build option. They are heated and electrically adjustable and electrically foldable. Basic Standard mirrors have to be manually folded and are not heated.

              It IS possible, but it requires a lot of work to the electrical circuit. I've seen someone made it himself.

              So only if you have the knowledge it's possible.

                        Ok my 2014 Astra VXR has electric folding mirrors but the key fob can not fold the mirrors. My wife's insignia 2015 has electric folding mirrors and if you press the lock button on the key fob for 3 seconds the mirrors fold. Maybe the 2015 Astra VXR's are the same?

                          No, Astra's J's don't have key folding feature.

                              A german engineer from a astra-j forum has developed a module, for folding the mirrors by pushing the key twice.
