• If possible, use the interior mirror to estimate distances to vehicles behind you.
• Make sure that you do not get your finger trapped between the mirror and the mirror base when folding back the mirrors. Risk of injury!

For the sake of the environment

Note
• If the electrical adjustment ever fails to operate, the mirrors can be adjusted by hand by lightly pressing the edge of the mirror glass.
• The following guideline applies to vehicles with electric exterior mirrors: If the mirror housing is moved as a result of exterior force (e.g. knocked when parking the vehicle), the mirrors must be folded in electrically to the final position.

• The rear view mirrors can be adjusted separately or simultaneously, as described before.
