Collapse wing mirrors

Hi all, been a while.

After almost 5 years of ownership I found something new today.

Press the wing mirror knob down and the wing mirros fold inwards.

I'm sure you know this already but it took me by surprise and made me giggle!

Wait until you find the pull out cup holders at the rear of the centre cubby. That was a surprise when I found them Thumbs Up

Say what.... I was told my discovery had power fold mirrors..... Can't wait to get home and try this ! No problem with the rear cup holders. The kids found those within about 4 minutes. Laughing

As what LumberJackWhite says, the mirror "adjust" knob (what you use to adjust your mirrors with) press it downwards & your mirrors should fold in, press again to fold out

Wow! I am going to the garage to test it out right now! I always push them in manually to get into and out of the garage. If it does work, this would rock!!!

Yes, Dave, the little Censored fold in!

As you're sat in your driving seat, look to the far end of your window sill and you'll see the wind mirror knob. Push it down and smile with a devilish grin for you have achieved 'folded wing mirror status'.

Smile

I've noticed the button also goes up but haven't realised a reason for it if anyone can shed some light?

Yeah, I get that, buddy. But when the knob is in the centre position it goes up with no consequence that I can see; press down while the button is in the centre position and we have magic!

Surely Land Rover has another trick up its sleeve...

tried it, it does not work on mine:( I have a V8 SE with power seats, power windows, Moon roofs, heated seats, power mirrors.
But not folding mirrors Confused Maybe it's only on the HSE's or from 07 on...
I put the power mirror knob to the center and pushed it up and down and nothing, am I using the wrong knob?
