Folding Door Mirrors
#1
Hi 

Can anyone tell me how to deactivate the folding mirrors on my 64 plate mk 3?
Every time I lock the car the mirrors fold in, fine i hear you say, but when you are in and out of it all day, it starts to get anoying! Sad

The mirrors seem to be moving slower and slower this last week, so i am thinking they might have a problem?
I can't find anything in the handbook and i will only go to my local dealers as a last resort££££.

Is this just sad or sign of getting old?

Many thanks in advance. Smile

Hello Shawks welcome to the forum Smile I have folding mirrors on mine it's all right to start off with but as you say getting in and out several time a day it got on my nerve's so the only way to stop them is take the fuse out which iv'e done open the glove box on the left you will see a black cover take that off you will see the fuse's just on the right you will see another little black cover remove the cover you will see some more fuse's the one you need to remove is F 4 15 Amp that will stop your mirror's from folding in / out after that if you want to fold them in or out you can do it by hand and when it come's to sell the berlingo just put the fuse back in and they will start working again.  Wink

I like the feature - it's the first car in years I've had where I can tell whether I locked it at a glance, by checking whether the mirrors are in or out. They're the modern-day equivalent of the pop up/down pips that cars used to have a decade or three ago!

You do need to check before unlocking though - I almost whacked someone on the backside the other day as they were walking past.

Its a nice feature and good visual reminder but I for one will be locking my Berlingo over 50 times a day/ 6 days a week while delivering and I wonder how long it will be before it breaks.

The other thing you cant seem to do is lock it with a door open which it rather annoying. One of the places I load from puts the front end out of immediate sight and on my previous Toyota you could lock the other doors with the boot open which meant the only way you would get in would be to climb through the boot which I can see from the shop window.
Cant seem to do this on the Berlingo and I cant see any door closed switches on the boot hatch to trick it into thinking its shut.

I had folding mirrors on a previous car, but they didn't go in when locked - you had to do it manually if required.

But I found it made all kinds of grating/groaning noises the odd time I did use it, when it was still fairly new. I wonder whether it would be more likely to suffer due to lack of use than from regular use. It's a good place for bits of grit and water to gather, and not using it will allow it to build up.

As you've got a 14-reg I'd say give it hell while it's under warranty.

I lock the car whilst leaving the boot up often. Simply push the locking tab across, when the hatch is up, I use the key to do that, then lock the car using the plip. When you return you just have to remember to press the hatch button after unlocking the car otherwise the hatch won't close properly. Some leave the rear hatch catch in the locked position and simply gently lower down but obviously it is not secured and relies on its own weight to stay closed. Not ideal but works for deliveries.

I know this is an old thread but I'll put my 2p in for anyone searching the forum.

My demo van had fold on lock mirrors and when I picked up my new one it did not and I commented on it in the showroom.

No problem the salesman said...

5 minutes later he appeared with my van from the workshop and said all sorted so this must be easily programmable in DiagBox/Lexia and certainly something that you should be able to get complimentary at your next service if required.

I'll have a look next time I hook mine up and see if i can find the right section in the software to change.

Yes, I have the electrically foldable and heated door mirrors.

For £60 extra I think they were good value.
